The InLight Foundation is a non-profit organisation (NPC 2017/394584/08) based in Cape Town, South Africa, with the primary aim of supporting and developing existing community organisations to improve service delivery to their respective communities.
The Inlight Foundation arose out of the realisation that many well-intentioned community organisations are struggling to improve their operations due to a number of constraining factors.
InLight aims to step in and assist in closing these critical gaps
The InLight Foundation was officially registered as an NPC and launched their first two projects:
- Madrasatul Hasan in Kewtown – a wendy house was built for the learners who were being taught outside
- Leaders of Light Scholarship Programme – this scholarhip programme afforded two madrassah teachers the opportunity to complete full time Islamic studies by covering their fees, transport costs as well as a monthly stipend.
The InLight offices were opened in January and the Ansaaru Rahman Quran Intensive Programme was launched.
This programme focuses on developing a love for Quran in the hearts of 150 students at Ansaaru Rahman Educational Center in Seawinds
InLight consolidates focus to Educational NGOs and formally launches the NGO Development Programme. InLight brings on 9 madrassahs onto the program – 6 from Kayelitsha, 1 from Bonteheuwel, 1 from Malmesbury and 1 from Seawinds
InLight launched the InLight Community Relief Fund to support families in need during the Covid crisis. This project provided direct funding to over 200 families in need. InLight sustains all other project commitments during the COVID crisis
