Project Rise is a philanthropic initiative by the worldwide Dawoodi Bohra community. As the name suggests, its core aim is to raise and elevate society’s less fortunate in every aspect of life to such a level, that they too become empowered to do the same for others, fostering a widespread culture of empathy, awareness and generosity which culminates in a society where no individual is neglected overlooked or marginalised.
Project Rise deals with a wide spectrum of initiatives and activities in varied fields including but not limited to healthcare, nutrition, hygiene, environmental responsibility and conservation as well as education. It aims to bring about a wholesome and comprehensive uplift in the lives of all humankind.
The inspiration for the project is deeply rooted in the teachings of Islam and the Prophetic traditions. These exhort Muslims to always strive for the betterment of others and exalt individuals who sacrifice their own needs for those of the collective and forsake their own interests for the greater good all the while establishing such acts as inherent parts of faith and essential hallmarks of true Islam.
Empowered by this philosophy of philanthropy, the Dawoodi Bohra community sets out to give back and contribute to the best of its abilities towards fostering positive and sustained change on a global level, under the banner of Project Rise.
