Zareef Minty Build a Mosque Foundation

2014-04-27 21:07

The Zareef Minty Build a Mosque Foundation is something I have been thinking about for a while now. Doing good and making a difference in society is something every single person should encourage whether they have come from an influential background, appreciate everything they receive and feel the need to give back or whether they have come from humble beginnings, understand the struggle, and never want to see the next person go through what they have gone through.

I was inspired by the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation and knowing that his foundation will change the lives of thousands of people in South Africa and that his legacy and what he stands for will be implemented on a daily basis. I know I am young but I also know that I have a vision of what making a difference really means and how everyone can contribute. This foundation will change the lives of millions of people in the next 20-50 years - I can guarantee you that.

This is the route we will take in the building up of the Zareef Minty Build a Mosque Foundation - we will identify areas that require a mosque (these areas will either be previously disadvantaged areas or areas where the volume of Muslims are high but that don’t have proper praying facilities), we will then choose the area where the first mosque will be built. In phase 1 we will raise money to buy over the land, while phase 2 will only begin once we have received enough contributions to actually cover the costs of building a mosque. Once we have built the mosque we will then move on to the next area. We set our sights on building our first mosque as our primary goal. After the first mosque is built we will look forward to covering all areas within South Africa that are in need of a mosque.

I can only do this and achieve the goals I have in mind for this foundation with the help of each and every one of you. We need volunteers; we need a team of dedicated individuals that are willing to assist in ensuring that this dream and goal I have will become a reality. We need contributors and most importantly, we need the support of the masses. We are currently registering the foundation with a team of strong and competent office bearers who are morally grounded and have the same aims as I do. The foundation’s account will be created as soon as the registration process is complete.

I urge everyone who is interested in assisting me with the foundation, be it with labour, finances, advertising and marketing, to contact me using the details provided below. We thank you for your interest in the ZM Build a Mosque Foundation.

Kind Regards
