Islamic Zakaat Fund

About Us

Islamic Zakaat Fund is a registered charitable organization with the initial aim of providing bursaries and scholarships to needy Malawian youth so that they become self-reliant and contribute to the development of their community and the nation

To achieve our goal, we collect funds in form of zakaat or general donations and channels the same to support students to realize their goal.  In Malawi, being among the poorest countries, education is too expensive for a needy student to pursue further.  We make them realize their goals.


Strive in putting an efficient mechanism for collection of Zakaat and the efficient distribution of the same towards education advancement for less privileged students as a means to improve their welfare with a view of converting Zakaat recipients to Zakaat payers.
