How You Can Become an MDO Volunteer!

There are many ways you can volunteer at MDO in order to support our multiple projects. From one-time opportunities to ongoing partnerships, your involvement on behalf of the needy can start a ripple of change – changing the lives of the needy and the future we all share.

Volunteer For Events

  • Qurbani – Maahad Daawah Organization pioneered the bringing of live goats to our Muslims’ doorsteps in Nairobi, slaughter for them and give them the meat for their distribution.

    This program endeavours to bring, good quality sacrificial animals closer to the Muslim Ummah, at an affordable and reasonable price. It also saves them time and money, in looking for such animals. Together with the above, the proceeds from this program assist in running our various Daawah and Education Sponsorship programs.

    In addition, MDO has been collecting funds and buying the live animals for sacrifice from remote places and distributing the meat shares to the needy and marginalised Muslim communities

  • Iftar distribution – Maahad Daawah collects funds for IFTAR distribution every year and distributes the food parcels which contain dry food items weighing about 40 kilograms to feed a family of 5 persons for the entire month of Ramadhan.

    In some of the areas (Tana River District & Bura), the plight of our brothers is heart rendering. Clean water which we take for granted and waste it without abating an eyelid, is a gem for our brother 500km from where we are seated.

    We realize that relief food is not enough, but we need to think of long term, for ways of improving their living standards. Either by education, subsistence farming, Irrigation, etc., achievable by partnering with other organizations. For how long can we sustain or continue sending food parcels?

    We urge you to make Dua and continue assisting our brothers throughout the year either through Maahad Daawah Organization or other similar organizations.

  • ATI graduation – Al Furqan training Institute (ATI) in Maili Tisa – Kajiado County is our flagship project where our vision of “poverty alleviation through education” is being pursued; conducts annual graduation ceremony for our students after having completed 6 years of High school education level of Islamic Studies as well as the Form IV curriculum.

    Alhamdulillah as of 2019, 231 students have graduated from ATI, who have further assimilated with the society and increased in their knowledge by going to Universities in Madina, South Africa and Sudan
