Sponsors wanted

This BANEE scheme works naturally with the wholehearted support of muslim community. As we broaden our base there will be requirement for more and more finances. We hope that all of us will be able to cater to the requirements through support from all affluent Muslims from Bihar and Jharkhand. That's why Bihar Anjuman is looking for members to donate for this charity work. Insh-Allah, there will be high reward from the Almighty for this noble cause.

By no means shall ye attain righteousness unless ye give (freely) of that which ye love; and whatever ye give, of a truth Allah knoweth it well. [Quran 03:092]

Please pledge your support to our moderators. They will let you know the student's A/c number where you can transfer the amount. For now, we advise the sponsoring members to transfer the amount directly to the selected candidates. Insha-Allah, we have a plan to register the Anjuman as a charitable trust under the NGO rules. That will enable us to accept contributions at a central account and channelise those contributions in an organized manner.
