A New Home: Makkah International Institute

Makkah International Institute seeks to become the first faith based community center of its kind in the metro Atlanta area. We have been committed to improving our community since 2015. We have striven towards this goal through various programs which include: summer camp, college tours, Arabic courses, virtual K-12 school, Earth Rangers, Run Club, Makkah Basketball team, and wellness counseling to name a few. As we move towards widening our reach, we see the need to solicit assistance from our community supporters. Improving education, wellness, and social programs is a BIG job and we cannot do it alone. Over the pass 6 years we have served more than 600 people. We see the need to continue this great work by establishing a brick and mortar home for our many services. We are in service to our community and are not focused on financial gains but moral, social, physical, and academic impact. With that being said, we need your help with the renovation cost and carrying fees for at least 4 months as we set up our new location. We hope that our request reach those with the softest or hearts and empathy for our cause. Here's a break down of the cost:
