“The Parable of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is that of a grain of corn: it groweth seven ears, and each ear hath a hundred grains. Allah giveth manifold increase to whom He pleaseth: and He knoweth all things”.
(Holy Quran, Al-Baqarah-261)
The Ta'awun Trust was established in 1988 by a small group of concerned citizens who were deeply worried about the state of poverty, ignorance and poor health of large sections of society. They were also concerned about disharmony in the nation. The Ta'awun Trust was on the anvil during early 80s and formally registered in September 1988 in New Delhi under the Founder Chairmanship of a great philanthropist and academician Dr. Mohammad Manzoor Alam. The Trust was established for advancement of education in arts, sciences, including medical and health education, to promote and develop cottage industries and agriculture, to encourage higher and professional education and to extend financial and other help to vulnerable sections of society, especially those regularly affected by natural calamities like floods, famines, earthquakes, hurricanes, landslide, etc., and those who have often suffered from communal disharmony caste strife, sectarian violence as also to look after destitute, the
sick, orphans, the disabled, the aged etc.
