The Cause: Education

Education forms the foundation of society and is responsible for the growth and development of communities. It provides children with the tools to improve their prospects and as a result better the lives of future generations.

Knowledge empowers people and creates opportunities to lift themselves out of difficulties. With your help, Salam Charity will be able to continue to provide children and adults support and resources needed to learn.
