COMBATING POVERTY WITH DIGNITY - EMPOWERMENT THROUGH EDUCATION.
Welcome To ABSN
Motivated by the vision of a world where women can reach their potential, the Ahlul Bayt Sisters Network (ABSN) is committed to teaching women to become socially and economically empowered. We are engaged in Tableegh Activities and hold regular effective seminars with people of all faiths to discuss Islamic Idealogs. Given the famine hit regions in Eastern Kenya, ABSN jointly channels its efforts with various organizations to alleviate hunger, provide shelter and makes Education accessible.
Our sisters and members are invited to participate in various conferences and seminars to learn more about the society and improvement of social work and skills.
To help the needy and deserving Muslim students with limited financial resources who display academic excellence and desire to acquire knowledge and skills to enhance self-reliance by pursuing their education through our sponsorship scheme.
Short courses for women: Tailoring, Computers, Crochet, Religious Studies English, and Lectures. Regular Exhibitions by our members helps in building their confidence and marketing skills. We also have a Kharze Hasana project and Small Loan Scheme which involves members and staff given the chance to borrow without paying interest. Many have benefited small loans to take care of businesses, buying plots and seeds, building houses and to take care of other issues. This is paid back on a monthly basis.
Annual medical camps are done to re – awaken the message of Lady Zainab (as) from a different prospective. We remember this great personality as an utmost knowledgeable, spiritual, patient person and care giver, who saw immense tragedies in her life. Yet she stood strong in her faith. During these camps both Muslims and non –Muslims are treated and free medicines are prescribed.
Regular help includes Education (school fees), porridge for children in Madressas, widows, orphans sick people and farming. Emergency help includes Death, Hospitalization and Medical, Marriage assistance, Funeral expenses, Transport. Re -building homes due to floods and fires. In Ramadan , food Parcels are given every year depending on the donations received to as many areas as possible. We also do Goat Sadaka and is done at various centers around Kenya.
With the support of our patron, Syed Mortada Mortada, ABSN, an Organization for women run by women, began a campaign of trying to uplift living standards in Kenya through empowerment Projects.
The aim is to empower the communities to improve their livelihoods within the spiritual frame.
How do we use your kind donation?
We appreciate the donations we’ve received from our supporters. The proceeds have been spent well. Many lives have been changed for the better.
Part of the money collected, is used to purchase sewing machines and starter kits for our students. This is a positive step towards making them self reliant as they start their businesses.
We have distributed, clothes, food stuffs, solar lamps, prayer hijabs, tuition fees, construction materials etc. We have also organised for medical camps, social and educational visits. All these would not be possible without the financial assistance and prayers of our supporters. Thank you.
