iAWN (International Assistance and Welfare Network)

This was my first serious community based international relief project but I could not realize it. Now, eight years later, there are many crowdfunding projects (islamic and non islamic). They still suffer the same original issues. However, they are trying to provide a service.  

iAWN (International Assistance and Welfare Network)

iAWN aims to be the first Islamic micro-lending network to empower donors in assisting and financing micro entrepreneurs in developing countries. iAWN would be an online charitable organization dealing mainly with collecting online donations to fund posted projects. It focuses on the following fundamentals:
  • Interest free lending 
  • Accessibility 
  • Security 
  • Privacy 
  • Fairness 
  • Creating value for both the donor and the entrepreneur 
iAWN offers a free, simple, and accessible web portal to link micro-entrepreneurs in sub-developed or developing countries with donors and investors in developed countries for the sake of raising funds for new or proven initiatives in the education, health, youth, woman, and other social sectors. At one end, the iAWN portal would allow people to donate online securely and with full privacy and contribute directly to any posted project. At the other end, project managers with the help of a local field partner would post a project that needs funding.
