The Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon him, said:
“The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.”
Founded in July 2012, Birds of Paradise Foundation is a private non-affiliated charity organization made up of the Kenyan youth, established to help the less fortunate in Kenya, Africa.
Our initial aim was to provide food packs to local villages containing everyday food essentials, which we found the locals struggling to obtain on a regular basis for their families. By the Will of the Allah Almighty, in the first year, we managed to support hundreds of families.
Food distribution has since been an on-going project, and year on year, we’ve attained incredible support, which has enabled us to extend our reach to the most remote areas in Kenya to over 100,000 families. The saying: ‘Charity begins at home’ really inspired us and took our ambitions to new heights, having diversified into other projects in areas of Education, Shelter, and Water supply.
That being said, as ‘the sky is the limit’, we’re not stopping there! By the Grace of Allah Almighty, we’re now registered in the UK and in the USA, so through these channels, and with your support, we aim to expand our reach even further and work together as a global community to fight the war against poverty.
