The Islamic Foundation

Introduction
The Islamic Foundation is an educational, charitable and welfare organisation. It is a non-political and non-sectarian body working for the welfare of humanity. Its purpose is to foster mutual understanding, closer co-operation and fellowship between people belonging to various religious faiths, ideologies and cultures.

Activities
The Islamic Foundation is involved in a wide range of activities ranging from producing and disseminating religious and educational literature to the running of orphanages, establishment of hospitals and clinics, madrassas, schools, vocational training centres, youth clubs, libraries, and the construction and management of mosques.

The Foundation has established and is running a number of centres in various towns of Kenya, and also plans to establish many more such centres in various towns with dire needs.

In short, the Foundation is working for the uplift of the less fortunate members of our society. A glimpse of our activities can be had by the study of the following:
