Muslim Women's Fund

Sahibzada, you might be interested in a journal entry just posted by the Global Justice Center. It describes a new organization, The Muslim Women's Fund, that has been formed to educate citizens about women's rights, as they particularly relate to Muslim women. The Muslim Women's Fund seeks to address the root causes of issues such as poverty, lack of access to education, and unequal rights, with an innovative new approach: a fund for Muslim women that is led and run by Muslim women from around the world. One of the pilot programs is to fund a Pakistani NGO that will provide transformative human rights curriculum at girls' madrasas to teachers who will then pass this education on to thousands of students. You might like to contact them to see what else they are doing in your area. You can read more about the Muslim Women's Fund at:
