Islamic Education Fund (IEF)

The Islamic Education Fund (IEF) is a funding support scheme meant for part-time religious classes at mosque madrasahs which was launched in 2004 with the following key objectives:

  • Funding for Families - To widen outreach to young Muslims and ensure that no child is deprived of Islamic Education due to financial difficulties.

  • Funding for Centres - To develop a quality Islamic education system via the aLIVE programmes by building capacity of mosque madrasahs and teachers.

More than 4000 students, 800 teachers and 38 aLIVE centres/mosque madrasahs have benefited from the IEF every year since its inception, in the form of fee subsidies, training grants, centre support grants and funding for outreach programmes.

Funding for Families (FFF) is a financial assistance from Muis, to assist eligible families to fund their children’s enrolment in the aLIVE programme.  The IEF provides fee subsidies to help defray the cost.
