Locally, Zakat House was the first to initiate and honour our ‘Muslim High Achievers’ for their success in sitting and excelling in the NSW Higher School Certificate. Starting with 8 students in 1998, we now award 100 students each year.
In this initiative, we are wholly dedicated to encouraging positive contributions to our local communities and overseas, as a part of our mission to cater for the needs of the interconnected communities in Australia and Lebanon.
As of 2022, we embark on an exciting new phase of our history as we rebrand ourselves from Bayt Al-Zakat to Zakat House.
As Zakat House, we aim to build on the legacy of Bayt Al-Zakat by realising our aspiration to grow our global work and impact more people around the world, while also continuing to strengthen our established programs initiatives.
Our team brings together the most passionate and hard-working members and leaders of our local community. With your generosity and kindness, Zakat House has been able to reach and provide for thousands of families, especially in Lebanon.
Together, we are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable communities and promoting initiatives that move forward with these goals, within Australia and overseas.
