Self- Reliance



The Dhaka Rickshaw project started in March 2010 from our Zakat money.Five rickshaws have been donated to poor and needy people who have never been able to own them. Before, they had to rent rickshaws and some of the money earned had to be given in form of a rental charge to the owner. However, by giving them their own rickshaws there is no need to pay rent as they are the sole owners. They can use the extra money to help themselves and maintain their family and provide education for their children. This is one of the example how we use the Zakat funds to make the poor self reliant.
