About Al Ansaar Foundation

Established In 1994.

A group of prominent businessmen set out to establish The Al Ansaar Foundation in 1994 in the hope of uplifting and improving the community

To promote education and guidance at all levels of society in order to develop individuals who are fully equipped to meet the challenges facing modern society and the transformations taking place on the African continent.

To create an enlightened, informed, educated and active community in South Africa.

While there were already other organisations in existence, these visionaries understood that it was their duty to address issues which they felt had been neglected. Therefore, The Al Ansaar Foundation was established to form an infrastructure to restore values and practices among South Africans and ultimately to reach communities. As a result, society will be more enlightened, educated and informed, thus empowering people to become active members of their respective communities.
