This campaign will collect all funds raised by June 18, 2024 at 11:45 AM EDT

Qurbani facilitated by Imams in South Africa, Zambia, Swaziland, Namibia, Botswana, Malawi, Tanzania, Lesotho, Mozambique, Uganda, Kenya, and Rwanda.


For just $110, you can feed, educate, and liberate poor communities in Africa through your Qurbani.

1. Fulfil your qurbani obligation (Eid Sacrifice). It is the best deed you can do during the best days of the year.

2. Your qurbani will feed entire villages in Africa.

3. Your Qurbani will elevate and support local imams.

4.  When your qurbani is through IOU, you will support the educating of the underprivileged of Africa.

Africa is one of the poorest and most uneducated regions in the world. 

  • Around 30% of Africa, more than 460 million people, were living below the EXTREME poverty line (Statista)
  • Higher education gross enrolment ratio globally is 40%, yet in Sub-Saharan Africa it was only 9% (UIS database)
  • Approximately 98 million Children in sub-Saharan Africa were out of school in 2021 (UNESCO Institute for Statistics)

Education will help break underprivileged Muslims out of the poverty cycle.

So far, the International Open University (IOU) has sponsored MORE than 4,000+ Muslim students in Africa with the help of our donors and many have ALREADY started to GRADUATE

IOU has also established more than 25 centers in more than 20 African countries, as many students don’t have access to computers, internet, and electricity.

Our goal is to provide scholarships to more than 1 million students in Africa.

Your Qurbani will not only provide immediate food aid to those in need but also pave the way for them to get educated as well.

  1. Your Qurbani will be distributed by an appointed local imam.
  2. The food will provide essential aid to those in severe need.
  3. This will help elevate the local imam and help us establish better relationships with the community.
  4. With strengthened ties, we can help getting those communities educated.
  5. Education will help break them out of the poverty cycle and provide for themselves.

By supporting this campaign, you are supporting Dr. Bilal Philips' 1 Million African Scholarships program
