Ramadan Giving Day 21: African Development Trust
Established in 2004, African Development Trust (ADT) is a small Muslim charity dedicated to providing relief and long-lasting sustainable improvements to the lives of people affected by poverty, war and natural disasters in Africa. They have a number of projects from rebuilding infrastructure to the sponsoring of orphans. ADT also provides emergency relief in Africa whenever disaster strikes and are dedicated to empowering communities across the continent.

ADT We want to build a future for Africa which is not reliant on foreign aid, donations or external support but this can only be achieved by addressing the root causes of poverty and overcoming the barriers facing poor communities across Africa. They have a 100% donation policy.

Their current campaigns include an emergency appeal for Djibouti in response to flooding, an Orphan Sponsorship programme, and an emergency appeal for Somalia also in response to extreme flooding.

O you who have believed, spend from that which We have provided for you ~ Quran 2:254

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: “The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) was the most generous person, and he used to become more so (generous) particularly in the month of Ramadan…more generous than the fast wind in doing good” (Bukhari).

The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

"Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned." ~ Quran 2:245

Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: "The best of people are those that bring most benefit to the rest of mankind." (Daraqutni)
