SANZAF Trees Waqf

Climate change patterns and the global financial crisis of the last decade have negatively impacted global food security. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) contends that as many as 204 million people in sub-Saharan Africa, including South Africa are undernourished.
These adverse conditions leave many ordinary South Africans struggling to meet their basic needs. Inadequate food and poor nutrition in turn leads to stunted development, illness and the inability to work.

In keeping with its mission of changing lives through development and relief, SANZAF embarks on several projects to combat food insecurity. In the Gauteng region SANZAF currently supports two community-based farms. Smallholder farmers, we believe can play an important role in fighting hunger and creating opportunities for employment in South Africa.

Smallholder and subsistence farms can increase food supply in communities, and consequently improve food security and nutrition.

This year SANZAF embarked on a new project in partnership with the Paledi Drop-in centre in Polokwane. The centre runs a community food garden that serves to create opportunities for employment as well as provide high-quality fresh produce to children who attend the Drop-in centre.

Donations to the SANZAF Tree Waqf will be used to plant orange, naartjie, mango, litchie and peach trees at the Paledi Drop-in Centre in Polokwane. Apart from forming a sustainable resource-base for community development, donations are a means of sadaqah jaariyah (perpetual charity) for the donor.

The SANZAF Tree Waqf was established in year as a sustainable resource-base to support Agriculture projects in the Gauteng region. The waqf forms a perpetual endowment, whose earnings are designated for agriculture in South Africa. The waqf system is traced back to the Prophet Muhammad (saw) who advised Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) to pledge a portion of land that he had acquired as a waqf. The land would remain intact, and could not be sold, while its fruits would be given as sadaqah (voluntary charity).

With your support, our tree waqf has grown to support four communities.

Phase 1: February 2019
200 Litchie trees were donated to the Winterveld Muslim Community based in Pretoria for their community orchard & 7 Fruit Trees (Orange,Lemon,Avocado and Peach) were donated to the Kwathema Muslim Community.

Phase 2: May 2019
500 Fruit Trees (340 Pecan nut and 160 Pomegranate) were donated to the Polokwane Muslim Welfare Foundation.

Phase 3: September 2019

The South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) is pleased to announce the financial results of its year ended 30 April 2019/24 Shabaan 1440.

“We are immensely appreciative of our donors, partners and volunteers whose support allowed SANZAF to forge ahead with our purposeful and structured projects and programmes aimed at providing the enablers to a better future for those battling the challenges of poverty every day”, says Shauket Fakie, SANZAF’s outgoing National Chairperson.

During the reporting period, the organisation reached its 45th year milestone, marked by an encouraging increase in the distribution and expended of total funds collected, from 98% in the previous year to 104%. With over 30.4 million South Africans living in poverty*, this increased distribution is significantly impactful, given the enormity of the task at hand.

The organisation also reported an increase in its collections for the year under review of R137 million of which R98.3 million comprised of Zakah income. Such an increase amidst tough economic conditions, is reflective of the heightened awareness of the plight of the poor and the importance of paying Zakah.

A noteworthy R24 million was disbursed with SANZAF’s Education, Empowerment and Development (SEED) Programme ranging from bursaries for tertiary education to youth development projects.

This past year, SANZAF sadly noted the passing of three stalwarts, Dr Shauket Thokan, Abdool Carrim Gani and Shaykh Yusuf da Costa. These committed members served the organisation with a clarity of purpose that continues to inform our mission and strategic objectives. Such clarity enabled the smooth transition to new leadership as Fayruz Mohamed took the reins as the National Chairperson and Yasmina Francke as the Chief Executive Officer.

“As we look to 2020 and beyond, we remain focussed on our mandate of upholding the 3rd pillar of Islam and continue in our endeavours to exercise the highest level of governance in fulfilling the amaanah entrusted to us. Our focus on operational proficiency will ensure that we continue to effectively serve the community with dignity and compassion”, says Fayruz Mohamed, the new National Chairperson.
