Zakat Foundation’s Development/Sadaqa Jariyah Program focuses on efforts that empower communities to lift themselves out of poverty.

Sadaqa Jariyah is an Islamic charitable tradition in which donors contribute to the creation or support of a service that will continue to benefit people over time. This not only ensures long-term benefits for those who receive it, but also perpetual rewards for those who support it, long after the donor passes away.

Zakat Foundation's Development / Sadaqa Jariyah Program unites the two concepts in pursuit of sustainable development. Sustainable development is the essence of Zakat in Islam, as the principles of Zakat affirm the essential right to a dignified life for all.

Focusing on sustainable development, Zakat Foundation ensures self-reliance and decreases community dependence on outside aid. Zakat Foundation believes that without sustainable development there is no progress.
