There are other needs of couse. There is the need to plan and launch a mass-movement to educate our children, particularly our girls. The road to salvation, to 'rahat' in these difficult times must revolve around the acquisition of education and knowledge of the highest standards. We must return to the "Iraq Agenda' which we have abandoned. The 'pen' must become the Muslim metaphor for all that is good and noble and righteous for the world to see and follow.

TOTAL SUPPORT. Rahat is helping them do just that. Rahat is helping 250 such families on a continuing basis, under its Total Educational Support Scheme (TESS), sponsoring 350 children, majority of whom are orphans. Under TESS a child is provided with almost everything required to go to school. School, bus and computer fees, uniforms, books, shoes, socks, raincoat, ties, badges-everything is provided by Rahat. Rahat provides total support to the family to ensure that the child goes to school properly. Educating these children is now Rahat's responsibility. Rahat also gives a small monthly allowance for food and ration to several families. Rahat provides nearly four hundred uniforms to poor students, going mainly to state run municipal schools at the beginning of every academic year. Rahat continues its support to Shaheen Urdu High School, a recognised school for girls in a slum locality in North Mumbai. Support is also extended to poor students of Al Kausar Urdu High School, another school located in another slum of North East Mumbai Support to these schools forms part of Rahat's long term agenda of promoting education on a mass level through local initiatives.

ZAKAT COLLECTION. Rahat activities are funded mainly through the Zakat collection in Ramzan every year. Rahat's modest activities are making a difference in the lives of those it is helping. But to really impact on society we need funds on a larger scale, such is also the undoubted need of the hour. We therefore request you to send Rahat a part of your Zakat this Ramzan. And ask at least two other persons to do the same. Zakat may be sent by a payee's account cheque/draft in favour of 'Rahat Welfare Trust,' to our registered office at 6, Fatima Manor, St. Monica Road, Bandra (West), Mumbai 400 050, India. Donors in Mumbai may contact us on phones (++91-22) 26552256 or 26428286 or mobile (++91) 9892309785, we will collect the Zakat from their home, office or shop. Donations of Zakat to Rahat are eligible for deductions as per rules under section 80G of the Income Tax Act, 1961. Thank You.
