We are pleased to announce that the Aziz Foundation will be co-funding the National Zakat Foundation’s Muslim Leaders Development Fund (MLDF). As part of our aim to support the development of leadership in disadvantaged communities, we will be working with National Zakat Foundation (NZF) to identify and support talented individuals with a vision for the communities they represent.
The Muslims Leaders Development Fund seeks to provide education, training, skills and other resources to emerging leaders who can demonstrate a high level of commitment to community service and who aspire to lead and inspire in their respective fields. This fund has been developed in response to the need for enhanced leadership within the Muslim community. In the future we hope to take part in similar initiatives to benefit other marginalised communities in the UK.
National Zakat Foundation will be holding the Muslim Leaders Development Fund launch event on Wednesday 20th September. Please see below for details. All attendees are required to register before the event as places are limited.
The launch event is an opportunity to hear more and ask questions about the purpose of launching the fund, the criteria and application process. Staff from NZF and Aziz Foundation will be present.

Time: 6pm – 7pm (Doors open 5:45pm)
