Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Salama Jamia Masjid neighbours the first Muslim cemetery in Nairobi that dates back to 1904.
Due to the significant population increase, the residences of Salama (including the masjid) are not receiving basic amenities services such as water, many taps have dried up for the last decade.
The lack of water has forced both the masjid and residence of Salam to buy water from vendors.
It is in the light of the water challenge that we propose a borehole to be dug at Salama Jamia Masjid to benefit the muslims in the masjid, cemetery and nearby communities around the masjid including an adjacent school.
