Who is InLight?
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 ranging from financial sustainability, poor governance and a lack of professional development.
InLight aims to step in and assist in closing these critical gaps. InLight aims to turn the many great ideas into reality!
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.
Key services at InLight are:
- Organisational Development Services
- Training and Capacity Building
- Media Services
- Project crowdfunding
The launch of InLight
In October 2017, 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. This funds for this project were collected within a week thanks to generous donations from the community
- 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.
In January 2018, the InLight offices were opened 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
Our vision is to create effective programmes that can be scaled to a number of organisations to address critical developmental areas.
