Welcome to the Al Jisr Foundation.
As a family Zakat foundation, our organization follows in the footsteps of the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) by focusing on strategic philanthropy initiatives which have the potential of leveraging high-impact, transformative change. The need for change could not be more pressing, nor his wisdom more apt.
Today, more than 1 billion people are living in extreme poverty. 844 million people do not have access to clean water, and an estimated 2.4 billion still lack improved sanitation. At least 400 million people do not have access to essential health services, and 263 million children and youth are deprived of education. More than 135 million are in desperate need of urgent humanitarian assistance.
Our vision is a world without poverty or hunger, in which all people have access to clean water and sanitation, healthcare and education. Our mission is to bridge the gap between poverty and opportunity by enabling effective initiatives in (emergency) healthcare and education. We are active supporters of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and deeply instill the principles of the UN Global Compact into every activity we undertake.
We cordially invite you to find out more about our initiatives and learn how you, or your organization, can get involved.
