It is We who relate to you, [O Muhammad], their story in truth. Indeed, they were youths who believed in their Lord, and We increased them in guidance.”
Surah Al-Kahf verse 13
ISLAMIC & YOUTH EDUCATION
Additionally, to ensure no child is deprived of Islamic education, financial assistance provided to students to attend the programme is also enhanced. Financial assistance from Zakat now assists families with per capita income (PCI) below $750. In all $1.5 million was disbursed in 2019 to 4,500 aLIVE students in need of fees assistance.
Through Zakat funds too, adults are able to onboard Islamic education with the Adult Islamic Learning (ADIL) programme. Ten modules were introduced in 2016 to 2019 to meet the demand for more ADIL modules. Aside to curriculum enhancements, Zakat is also utilised to continue to enhance teachers training for ADIL and at the same time recruit a wider pool of asatizah to deliver the programme.
