Hope for Humanity
Zaman is committed to facilitating change and advancing the lives of marginalized women and children, by enabling them to meet essential needs common to all humankind.
Our vision, with your help, is to realize a world where women and their children can break the cycle of poverty and self-direct their futures. We do this through wrap around support with a multi-step model:
|1. Basic needs assistance to stabilize the families. This includes our Bayt Al-Zahra Basic Needs Program and Client Choice Food Pantry, Good Deeds Resale Store, Meet Up & Eat Up Summer Food Program, and more.|
|2. Skills training and confidence building to provide the women with the necessary experience and social-emotional support to prepare for a job. The BOOST (Building Ongoing Opportunities through Skills Training) Vocational and Literacy Training program provides this education.|
|3. Staged employment of our former students onsite at Zaman, and assistance with interview preparation, job readiness, and job connections for sustainable employment in the community. Both the BOOST program and our Bayt Al-Zahra Social Work Department provide these resources.|
Internationally, we provide basic needs assistance and community development in 28 projects in 19 countries through the following programs:
1. Sips of Hope: building and maintaining water wells, primarily in countries in Africa.
2. Orphan Hope: supporting orphans in the USA and around the world, especially through a partner orphanage in Iraq.
3. Disaster Relief: providing food, hygiene, and medical necessities to communities in crisis.
