Misbah Momin Foundation (MMF) is a non-profit organization, established in 2012. The foundation’s humble efforts commenced in a small room with the personal savings of Misbah Momin and six other founding members. Our first donation, given to us by a three-year-old child, ascertained that there was no turning back. Just like the river flows into the sea, we must give back to the world to keep it replenished.
Despite modest beginnings, increasing social issues across the globe have necessitated critical breakthroughs at MMF through the next stage of its growth and impact. With a firm belief in “Kun Faya Kun,” a magical phrase of the Lord, Misbah Momim has faith in the power of good intentions and the universe aiding their manifestation.
MMF’s first program, based on income support, was built on a model to aid the underprivileged, widows, individuals with special needs and orphans, to cover basic amenities like utility bills, rents, and debts. The initial beneficiaries included three people, but within a few years, the numbers started growing, making financial sustainability an issue. This is when the team realized that it needed to revisit its model for long-term benefits to society and shifted its focus on empowering socially and economically deprived individuals. To this end, MMF initiated a scholarship program for deserving students, along with a program that provided interest-free microfinance for new start-up businesses.
“To enlighten enable, empower and evolve people by channelizing their inner potential to creatively carve their own path.”
“We envision a world with the spirit of enabling and empowering individuals through innovation and learning by embracing change.”
Since 2012, MMF has been working towards community welfare and has, as part of its future strategy, also branched out into community development and advocacy.
