At GIM Foundation, we’re dedicated to ending global poverty and creating a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

In line with our Islamic values, we believe that all lives are sacred and all people have the right to live a life of dignity and opportunity.

We believe the only way communities can flourish is when they have access to basics like food, clean water, healthcare, education and the opportunity to make a sustainable income. We have seen that with the right tools, people can improve their own lives and thrive.

Since being established in 2012, we’ve worked in the most remote areas in Africa where, with your help, we’ve made a meaningful impact through community-led projects in education, water and sanitation, economic empowerment and health.

Alhamdulillah, thanks to your support, we’ve helped over a million people since the beginning of this journey. Now, we’re expanding our reach to places like Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and Palestine.

Our work

We work with our global and local partners to build better futures for vulnerable communities all over the world.

We’re registered as a member with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commision (ACNC) and adhere to their standards.

Our work encompasses four key areas, including:

Building communities for the future
When communities are empowered, they can accomplish incredible things. That’s why we believe in helping people help themselves. We achieve this through our long-term projects in:

  • Food security
  • Health
  • Education
  • Livelihoods
  • Water sanitation and hygiene
  • Responding to emergencies
    Where people have been affected or uprooted by disasters or conflict, we help them get through crisis. We do this by providing immediate relief in the form of:

  • Water
  • Food
  • Shelter and protection
  • Medical support

    We work with the most vulnerable in conflict situations, including women, children, the elderly, forcibly displaced people, and people with disabilities.
  • Religious and seasonal programs
    Our seasonal programs focus on providing support at times when it’s needed most. During the winter months, we focus on bringing warmth to help vulnerable families survive freezing conditions.

    We also support vulnerable families celebrate the holy month of Ramadan followed by Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, when poverty and the lack of access to food is felt even more. Each year during Ramadan and Eid al-Adha, we provide:

  • (Fresh meat (Qurbani)
  • Nutritious food packs
  • Hot iftar meals
  • Eid gifts
  • Orphan and widow support
    As part of our Islamic faith, we know how important it is to care for orphans. That’s why we have an Orphan Sponsorship Program specifically to support orphans and widows.

    The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, “The one who cares for an orphan and me will be together in Paradise like this,” putting his index and middle fingers together. [Bukhari]
