The MATW Project Story
MATW- Muslims Around The World was a special project developed in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty stricken areas of Togo in Africa. “Muslims Around the World” was established by Ali Banat, a brother from within the Australian Muslim community, who recently found out he was diagnosed with cancer. This motivated Ali to travel to Togo, Africa and spend the rest of his time assisting the communities there.
During his 2 week journey, Ali met local children and families and has seen their situation first hand. What started as a personal project has turned into a long term vision to bring joy to the smiles of children all over the world. Muslims Around the World aims to build a village which will be home to over 200 widows, a masjid for the local community and a school to house 600 orphans. A mini hospital/medical centre and businesses to support the local community are also going to be established. With Muslims Around the World, 100% of the donations will be delivered with 0% administrative fee as all fees are covered by sponsorship.
All funds collected are divided and spent amongst the 3 projects MATW has running at the moment MATW Village, Chive Project and Cemetry Project. We purchase all materials for all three sites, pay workers, provide food for those on sight and aid for those who in need also. In creating these 3 projects we have created on going sustainable support.
