All pupils and adults attending classes are fed  every day .   b.   They are given food hampers to take home whenever available especially during  Ramadaan.   c.   They are given meat parcels regularly  –   especially during Qurbani.   5.   BLANKETS   (WINTER WARM)   a.   Blankets are distributed during winter months.    b.   Every pupil and   every adult  receives a blanket. Muslim families around the Madaaris also  receive blankets.   This is part of a bigger Winter Warm Drive that the organization  undertakes annually.   6.   RAMADAAN HAMPERS Food hampers are given to the pupils and adults   attending our Madaar is   during the month of  Ramadaan when everybody is fasting. The hamper contains enough food for the month for Iftaar  (supper) and for Sehri (Breakfast). This hamper is sufficient for an entire family for one month.     Approximately 3000  hampers are made  befor e  Ramadaan. These hampers are not only given to  the pupils and the parents attending Madressa but the poor families in the surrounding areas.  Families actually wait for these hampers during this period.   7.   MEAT HAMPERS   Approximately 2000 meat hampers are made   after  Qurbani . These hampers are not only given to  the pupils and the parents attending Madressa but the poor families in the surrounding areas.  Families actually wait for these hampers during this period.   8.   CLOTHING   Lillah and Zakaat clothing are issued to   our students at regular intervals. This process is helping  us clothe them in conformity with Islaam.    9.   HOUSING      We assist families, both Muslim and Non - Muslim to  re - build   their homes after it has been  destroyed by fire, water etc.      We also help our students  when they are in dire need of housing. As an example we  helped build a shack for a woman who was living alone in a drum.      We also help those who have leaking   roofs, broken zincs  etc.   build their homes properly.      We help Usthads and  Appa   to rebuild their hous es if destroyed during a disaster or if it is  in need of renovation.   10.   BURIALS   We have  assisted , with the help of Saaber ie Chisty, to provide funeral ar rangements for any of our  students or their famil i es (who are M uslim). The entire funeral cost   is borne by   the organization.     11.   FINANCING          The financing of the entire project, i.e. the books, the feeding, the hampers , clothing, salaries  (the  management of the entire Madressa system)  etc.  are effected by the Muslim community of South  Africa. Regular donors,   though small in amount but great in numbers, are responsible for  maintaining this project.   12.   BURSARIES          Bursaries are also given to students who perform well. Although there may not be many at this  stage, we envisage that the amount of students that wi ll be seeking bursaries will increase in the  future. All this will be sponsored by the Muslims of South Africa.     13.   JALSA   Every Madressa is required to have a Jalsa at least once a year. The parents and the Muslims in  the surrounding areas are invited to atte nd and are given refreshments. In this way we are  encouraging the Muslims to  show that they are Muslims and also to try and  propagate   Islaam  amongst the people by showing them what Islaam is all about.  14.   P UPILS ATTENDING ADVANCE COURSES   IN ISLAAM   W e are trying to find out what happened to the pupils who left the Madressa after having  completed the course. We know that some of them are at tending Darul Ulooms  in Newcastle  to  become  Alims. We know of at least two that are Hafez Al Quraan and at least o ne that studied in  Medina   –   Saudi Arabia.  All these pupils were Christians before they started attending our  Madressa.     a.

SKILLS TRAINING   AT MADAARIS   It is our intention to introduce skills training at all our Madaaris. This is difficult because of the  crime and the possibility that the equipment will be   stolen from the centres. We will, however, try  our best to secure the centres and introduce the skills training  –   sewing for the elderly ladies and  computer literacy for the pupils.   16.   HAFEZ CLASSES AT MADAARIS   We intend instituting Hafez classes at our Mada aris as soon as we can get some students who  want to become Hafez. Some of our students are attending Hafez classes at other institutions.   17.   IN SERVICE TRAINING   Our teachers recei ve regular in - service training o nce a month during the term and three days  duri ng the holidays.    Most of our female teachers started their Islamic education at our own Madaaris. Most of them  were from Christian background and are now teaching Islam and doing Dawah work  in  their  communit ies . We have a few male teachers from our Madaar is but the  majority is   either from  Malawi or from Mozambique. 18.   FIRST AID TRAINING   Our  staff received first aid training and has   received certificates after having passed the test.    19.   CENTRALIZED ADMISSION REGISTER   To accommodate our desire to know what is ha ppening to our pupils, we have started a  centralized register for all our Madaaris. All pupils from all our Madaaris will now be registered  and given an admission number from the office. We hope then to follow their progress throughout  their educational ca reers.
