Alridha Foundation is an independent international charitable non-governmental organisation with projects and events relating to youth, education, academic research, community support and international aid work. We also aim to increase the full and part time education and social welfare of Muslim communities by building schools, creating institutions of higher learning and developing educational programs.
As well as running our own projects we are also an umbrella organisation for the Harrow Primary School, Salam Nursery, Centre for Islamic Shiʿa Studies (CISS) and Al-Ridha Schools.
Alridha Foundation emphasises the growing need of peaceful coexistence, religious and racial tolerance. As part of a multi-cultural, ethnic and religious world, we aim to highlight the commonalities between us, thus leading to increased tolerance and understanding. Since 2013, the Foundation has held Consultative Status with the Economical and Social Council of the United Nations and sends delegations to important conferences at the headquarters in New York throughout the year. Alridha Foundation has its headquarters in London, and operates in the US and Iraq as a recognised NGO.
As an independent charity we rely on self-funding projects, community support and donations to assist with our operating financial requirements. We are a registered charity and welcome any financial support to our projects including donations that can be added to the Gift Aid scheme (Charity Registration No. 1142811).
