Mona Lisa Project – Supporting Syrian Orphans & Refugees: Ilm's Charity & Community Service Committee was responsible for initiating and executing this project, along with the joint effort of our local masjid. This committee comprises of both PTO members along with some of our dedicated students. Last year, they successfully and systemically arranged for fundraising initiatives which included the following activities; school hosting a benefit breakfast, holding various venues for the opportunity to purchase Ilm students' hand-made arts & crafts, calligraphic wall-hangings, and jewelry.
Food Drive: as part of our endeavors to amalgamate with our local Islamic schools, Ilm Academy was involved with the Atlanta Food Bank to collect food & drink items, for the benefit of our local Muslim brothers and sisters. The teachers generated a buzz, whereby the students were eager to participate, for the purpose of not only helping their fellow neighbors, but also earning rewards in the hereafter.
Water Project: this was a school competition between all the grades, to raise funds for the purpose of providing clean water to third world countries. This was in line with the subscription to the Islamic belief of contributing to helping their fellow Muslims. The students were required to approach various individuals to raise money for this cause, which inevitably boosted the students' confidence and self-esteem when interacting with others. Ilm Academy, alhamdullilah, accumulated vast sums of money through the charitable efforts of our students.
