REACH THE UNREACHABLE WITH JUST ONE DOLLAR (RTU$1) PROJECT
DEFINING THE PROJECT #RTU$1
Project Reach the Unreachable with just one dollar is a fund raising strategy that targets every Muslim in order to give at least one dollar (Le 10,000) per annum so as to be able to reach vulnerable people in deprived communities and address issues of natural concern.
THINGS THAT THIS PROJECT SEEKS TO ADDRESS
This fund raising initiative seeks to address the issue of poverty and hunger which is prevalent in our country as many people live below $1 a day: therefore many go to bed hungry.
There has been an alarming increasing rate of widows and orphans who find it difficult to have access to basic lives amenities. Many husbands die leaving behind their wives with many children. In most occasions, their wives and children are left to suffer since the husband was the breadwinner of the family.
Education is also limited to few, those who can afford it; those who are privileged. Many families in deprived communities find it difficult to undertake the expenses involved in taking care of their children’s educational expenses. Therefore, we find many children out of schools who in the future would become nuisance in their communities. Another problem with education is that there are communities that lack school facilities or educational materials.
The issue of lack of basic amenities such as access to clean and pure water, food, clothing and shelter is an open secret. Without these basic lives needs, many people find it difficult to survive.
As a charity foundation, we also see stinginess as a challenge. We live in a society where people finding it difficult to part with their money even for charitable causes. Wealth is not evenly distributed and so the poor continue to live deplorably whiles the rich live in luxuries.
Funds from this project, would seek to address some of those issues in shaa Allah.
1. To create an easy means of giving charity thereby reviving the sunnah/tradition of giving.
2. To help contribute to sustainable national development.
3. To foster unity through charity.
4. To help curb the disease of greed.
