"Are those who have knowledge equal to those who do not have knowledge?" (39:9)
In many ways, education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. It builds a skilled workforce, reduces gender inequalities, and provides the knowledge needed to achieve a more peaceful future. Several hadiths have also laid great emphasis on both receiving and imparting knowledge. In fact, the very first word the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) received in revelations from Allah was "Iqra", meaning read.
Although school enrolment rates have steadily been increasing around the world, non-proficiency rates remain disturbingly high, with an estimated 617 million children and adolescents lacking minimum proficiency in reading and mathematics.
Having begun as a school, Al-Khair Foundation will always value the power of knowledge and education. Currently we have 4 of our own holistic Islamic schools within the UK, in which we offer the national syllabus alongside a range of extracurricular activities. We also have 6 schools around the world, and support several more in a myriad of ways. In Kenya, Al-Khair Foundation has supported the Madrastul Irshad School by contributing to the salaries of teachers and also providing laptops and a printer. Similarly, in Somaliland we have enabled 1836 students to gain primary and supplementary secondary education in our Hargeisa school by providing funding for teachers, equipment and transportation.
