From Wikipedia "zakat on wealth" (or Zakah) is a form of alms giving treated in Islam as a religious obligation or tax and is one of the Five Pillars of Islam.

Why Kiran Foundation School?


Kiran Foundation was founded by Sabina Khatri with the mission and vision: to bridge the gap and create a compassionate society. The Kiran School System is a trauma-sensitive mother-child compassionate pre-school as well as an alternate intervention for primary and secondary schools. Kiran School first opened its doors in the underserved violent and volatile neighborhood of Lyari Karachi. The school system started off as a preschool program on the belief that leadership values are instilled at an early age and require the support of a child’s guardians. The aims are to educate a child to compete in mainstream schools instead of remaining marginalized. To ensure the program’s success, the school brings entire families into its tutelage, mandatorily involving the mother and henceforth all relevant members in the child’s life.
