Project Rise

Project Rise is an umbrella initiative by the worldwide Dawoodi Bohra community which sets out to synergise the various philanthropic contributions of its institutions and members into a unified entity. 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. It strives to foster 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 this 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, all the while establishing such acts as inherent parts of faith and essential hallmarks of true Islam.

The Prophet Mohammed SAW states: ‘All creation is a family dependent on Allah TA. The most beloved of all creation to Him, therefore, is the one who benefits his family the most’.

Empowered by this philosophy of philanthropy, the Dawoodi Bohra community under the banner of Project Rise, sets out to give back and contribute to the best of its abilities, towards fostering positive and sustained change on a global level.
