DONATION REQUEST: 36 UNITS OF N5, 000 MONTHLY
All praises be to Allaah. May His peace and blessings be on His noble Messenger, His Companions and whoever follows His path till the Day of Reckoning.
The E-dawah Foundation hereby humbly requests assistance to maintain our vast infrastructure and keep our projects running. We need a minimum of N180, 000 monthly to operate well at the basic level. To achieve this, we are seeking monthly donations in 36 units of N5, 000.
The E-dawah Foundation was formed 6 years ago to “expand the frontiers of IT in the propagation of Islam through increasing the IT awareness of Muslims and championing dawah activities in Nigeria through the application of world-class IT practices.” In that period, we have executed numerous projects and partnered with numerous other bodies. Our most prominent project is Dawahnigeria.com.
Dawahnigeria has delivered almost ten tera-bytes of dawah across almost all countries. The project is currently in its 3rd phase with lots of sub-projects. They include:
- Ramadan e-Tafseer: Daily uploads of various tafseer sessions across Nigeria
- Dawahcast: Audios of rich Islamic lectures in various Nigerian languages
- Quiz: Comprehensive Islamic quiz with almost 4000 questions, answers and brief explanation available in web and android platform
- Quranopedia: A huge initiative, in its first phase, to bring the Quran closer to people, with a vision of becoming an encyclopedia of the Quran
- Qur’an Service: A 24/7 Quran station that streams Quran from various Nigerian reciters available in the following channels: Android, iOS, Windows sidebar widget and mobile-optimized Web version.
- Marketplace: An online store to sell dawah works of various resource persons, magazine subscriptions etc. It is primarily for assisting and encouraging resource persons to publish and profit from their quality works.
- Many more. Please visit http://dawahnigeria.com/initiatives for more information.
Below is an overview of our average monthly recurrent expenditure:
- Hosting: N80,000
- Internet bandwidth: N20,000
- Paid volunteers: N50,000
- Miscellaneous: N30,000
Total N180, 000
Apart from these recurrent cost items, we also spend on the following:
- Research & Development (in-house and outsourced)
- Recordings of Quran recitation: We just got basic studio gadgets with almost N300, 000. We intend to gradually produce numerous complete Quran recitations by some of our qualified resource persons. We have started already.
- Production of dawah discs for free distribution at a unit cost of N100. Please visit http://dawahnigeria.com/discs for more information
- Production of items for outreach and publicity (key holders, handbills etc.)
- Setting more questions for our Quiz.
- Many more
What numerous people have passionately worked for, day and night, for years, is in need of urgent and consistent help. The financial pressure is so intense and it distracts us from our core activities. These, together with the fact that we also have our fulltime jobs and families, make our current model unbearable and unsustainable.
