This project aims to harness and leverage Muslim women’s charitable giving. As Reviving the Islamic Sisterhood for Empowerment (RISE) explains: “Muslim sisters work hard, save money and are very charitable. Their faith influences their giving and the need to make the world a better place. Often, they are very humble about their giving, and rarely ask what impact their money is making. So much that the issues that affect them the most are rarely improved or changed and it often doesn’t occur to Muslim women that they can influence change with their charitable giving. This project’s aim is to change that mindset and transform our giving into direct power to impact change.”
