The Need

Our full-time madrasahs are private institutions wholly funded by our community. With the increasing cost of education, a constant challenge faced by the madrasah sector is ensuring that there is a sustainable stream of financial support. The cornerstone of this sustainable stream is a collaborative investment between three parties - madrasahs, our community and the Government.

The madrasahs gather funds via school fees and fundraisers. Our community contributes via zakat and wakaf contributions, Dana Madrasah and MBMF. The government supports and supplements this via Edusave contributions to all madrasah students, a waiver for the National Examination fees and support for developing teacher capabilities for secular subjects.
