2014 EDUCATION AND SKILL TRAINING
Education is the key to advancement not only for individuals but for communities as well as generations to come. Zakat Foundation of America (ZF) initiatives include educational sponsorship for children and adults in order to promote self-sufficiency and stability for all. Every year when families in need purchase school supplies for their children, resources may be taken from the food budget or meager savings to cover the annual expense. To make this expense less of a burden on families, ZF distributes backpacks to schoolchildren in the fall every year.
