Chairman's Welcome

 It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the upgraded website of IQRAA Trust (South Africa).

Our mission is to uplift the quality of life of all South Africans by promoting and supporting humanitarian programs that are designed to help those who are most in need, to help themselves. We intend to use the resources that are placed at our disposal to develop and fund solutions that will empower people irrespective of race, colour or creed. We want to equip them so that they can contribute to growth and development in South Africa and to share in the benefits of building a better society for all. During your visit to our website, you will realise that we are focused mainly on addressing the key issues of poverty, unemployment and healthcare which still represent the most serious challenges facing South Africa.

We believe that the best way to alleviate poverty and unemployment is by according the highest priority to projects that are aimed at providing education at both the basic and higher level; projects and programs that provide training and promote the acquisition of vocational skills, and projects that facilitate access to better health care and create awareness of the risks of HIV and AIDS.

As a visitor to this website I am sure that you will identify with Iqraa Trust’s approach to poverty alleviation in South Africa.

In the implementation of Iqraa Trust’s strategy we place considerable importance on partnering with other organisations. The formation of such partnerships enabled us to implement a wide range of important humanitarian projects successfully. Information on some of these projects can be found on this website.

Accordingly I would like to extend an invitation to you to consider partnering with us on programs and projects whether it is by contributing financially or by providing expertise and sharing your knowledge and experience.

You can be assured that your participation will make a meaningful contribution toward the successful implementation and sustainability of a large number of worthy projects. We are always willing to show you the impact of our projects on the quality of life of those in need. I assure you that nothing in life will give you more pleasure than seeing the positive impact of your contribution on the lives of others.

Thank you for your time and for you support.
