Buraq Endowment Fund

Donate for Buraq

This Fund invests donations into perpetual programs empowering communities through vocational skills training, entrepreneurial loans, and access to clean water.

About

The Buraq Endowment Fund operates on the principle of legacy giving, sustainably funding impactful programs through prudent investment. Donations are carefully managed, with returns strategically reinvested to uplift communities across three key areas: vocational training, microfinance, and infrastructure development.

This integrated approach propagates a ripple effect of economic mobility and grassroots leadership. As dividends accumulate, they fuel ever-increasing opportunity – setting in motion a cycle of empowerment passed from student to community. Each new nurse, engineer, IT specialist, lawyer or entrepreneur we help train has potential to transform neighborhoods for years beyond graduation.

Fueled by the belief of lasting change and living dignified lives, we are proud to introduce the “Buraq Endowment” initiative.

This unique fund, which we refer to as ‘Dividends for Dreams,’ operates on the principle of legacy giving, where your generous donation is invested wisely. The profits derived from these investments, or ‘dividends,’ directly fund skills development for deserving students to secure their future. Hence the adage ‘give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.’ Your investment truly creates dividends that fuel dreams for a lifetime.

A Legacy of Learning

How does it work? When you contribute to the “Buraq Endowment” fund, your donation is carefully invested. As the investment yields profits, these returns are funneled directly towards vocational training in various lucrative fields including but not limited to sewing and dressmaking, electrical installations, IT and nursing scholarships and many more. The original investment remains, continuing to grow and generate profits to support more students year after year

Delivering Impact with Intention

We employ a measured approach by thoroughly vetting and selecting the most committed and capable students – those who show a strong resolve to complete their education but lack the financial means. Your donation thus ensures that deserving students gain the opportunity they need to alter their life’s trajectory.

In addition, graduates with the potential and will to establish their own businesses are provided microfinance loans, further encouraging entrepreneurship and local economic growth.

Promoting Health and Hygiene

Recognizing that education and good health go hand in hand, we also educate our beneficiaries about sanitation and provide them with clean water and hygiene facilities where needed. This preventive approach helps to reduce the spread of diseases and improves the quality of life.
