Education & Skill Training - Zakat Foundation of America | Zakat Calculator | Muslim Charity | Muslim Aid Students studying at Rumi International School

Rumi School was initially founded in 1996, but funds quickly dried up and the school was forced to shut down suddenly in 2004. The community was in an uproar as this was the only school for many children in Afghani refugee camps as well as Pakistani border villages. The community of Haripur begged for assistance and Zakat Foundation responded. When our team arrived, they were shocked to find that the school had been utterly devastated, the roof had been destroyed and everything inside had been gutted. There were meetings with the parents, children and leaders of the community to determine the total needs and figure out the best plan of action.

The school was repaired and reopened and the children of the community were able to return to Rumi School with new materials and opportunities to greet them. When the school reopened in 2004 the classes were filled with 580 students nicely dressed in their traditional uniforms and eager to learn. School supplies were provided to each child through our backpack program. Every year, more than 500 students are able to attend school with hopes of a bright future.
