No other job on this Earth is more rewarding in the eyes of Allah than that of an Imam (leaders). He works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the behest of the community who comes knocking at his door during the early morning hours and late in the evenings. The Imam is the most underpaid profession in the Muslim Community, yet, like the rest of us, he must see to the household expenses whilst raising a family as well.
The South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) in partnership with The Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) is proud to announce the launch of the Ta’awun Imamat Programme (Imam Assistance Programme) that aims to ensure that imams earn a living wage aligned with their qualifications and experience whilst empowering the community.
Three Imams and their committees have been chosen to pilot this project and will be paid a salary from the Imam Assistance Fund account. This account is managed by SANZAF, who produce annual audited statements.
The Programme aims to:
- Provide a living salary to Imams from areas in and around the Western Cape where the respected regional masjid committee does not have the resources to provide a monthly salary to the Imam.
- A medical aid (Hospital Plan).
- Providing financial stability for the Imam so he may focus completely on servicing his community in which he is employed and therefore providing an added benefit to that community.
Your contributions will go a long way in sustaining this long awaited initiative. Please help us #GiveHope by supporting the Imam Ta’awun Programme.

What is Early Childhood Development?
SANZAF’s ECD or Early Childhood Development tier of SEED refers to a comprehensive approach, with the active participation of their parents, educators and caregivers to fully realise a child’s rights to develop his or her full cognitive, emotional, social, educational and physical potential from a grassroots level.
South Africa still has a long way to go in improving the accessibility of education and pre-school facilities to young children. Key reasons for this are affordability, lack of proper child care schools and a shortage of resources at existing facilities. In light of this SANZAF’s ECD project serves children whose parents cannot send them to ECD centres and develops child-care facilities, educators and playschools in under resourced areas.
This year our goal is to open up an ECD centre in the community of Kwalanga in Gauteng. The area is one of the least serviced areas in the province which has led to SANZAF already developing and maintaining a development project for the children of the area.
The Kwalanga Early Childhood Development Centre project, which will be situated in Kwa Thema on the East Rand, was initiated to provide children with high-quality education and a place of safety. It is hoped that through the project, children from the area will go on to succeed in primary and high school. The ECD centre will play an important role in reducing the vicious cycle of poverty that plagues this community and will help to create prosperity for the community at large.
The Kwalanga ECD Centre forms part of a larger project, the Kwalanga Multi-purpose Community Centre that endeavours to provide educational, recreational, vocational and spiritual services to the community. The facility currently houses a recreational space for children and young adults, community hall and food garden.
Do your part by helping SANZAF #GiveHope to the children of Kwalanga.
