A non-profit, philanthropic and educational women’s organisation that rises to the occasion in times of need within the community inside and outside our borders.
Our focus is on relief, social welfare,women and youth empowerment, education with special attention to the upliftment of township madressas and schools. Feeding schemes are a priority within these schools and madressas, as hungry minds are never conducive to healthy learning.

The feeding schemes are also carried out every Saturday in Ramadaan in Kwa Mashu, Kwa Makutha, Newlands West and Marianhill.
One thousand six hundred utility bags with necessities and blanket were gifted to underprivileged madressa children in townships in and around Durban.
