Helping those in need during Ramadan

Happy Ramadan! During this holy month, it is a tradition to give to less fortunate Muslim communities around the world.  This Ramadan, you can make charitable donations to high-impact projects for local communities throughout regions in Asia that have significant Muslim populations.

With 93% of your funds going directly to local nonprofits, you can feel confident that your donations will make a difference on the ground. Projects include supporting schools in Afghanistan, creating economic opportunities in Indonesia, and providing access to quality education in urban and rural Pakistan.

Local field staff ensures that all funds are used transparently while satisfying IRS guidelines for international grant making to meet U.S. tax-deductibility requirements. As for all programs funded through Give2Asia, donors can also request reports on how their contributions were used.
