SCOPE: The Association manages two programs: Feeder Schools, and Coaching Centers.
A. Feeder: Rs.250/ student/month — 20 students/ school/ district – Grades 5th -12th. Total: Rs. 50,000/ school/year.

A local Alig, or a teacher/manager of a school, or a social activist in a particular district is the Incharge of a district institution (or Unit). In addition, a member (or a close associate) of Aligarh Alumni Association Washington DC is the Lead Contact of each of those Units.
Under this “Feeder/ Coaching Center” Project – currently, we are providing free education to about
1000 students in schools spread across many districts/states of India: UP, Bihar, Jharkhand, Kashmir, Assam, W. Bengal, and Karnataka. Presently we manage 16 Feeder institutions (Units) and 9 Coaching Centers, spending approximately Rs. 12 Lakhs ($20,000) annually.
FUNDING: Funds are raised at an annual fundraising event of the Aligarh Alumni Association,
Washington DC, which is typically held at a Ramadan iftaar, and through a yearlong campaign. Your
Zakat money, your regular / any other form of donations, charity, etc. – all are critical in financing
these Educational Projects for these most needy Muslim children.
