Al-Najat Charity was established in the State of Kuwait on Tuesday, 6 Rabi I, 1398 AH, corresponding to 14 February 1978. It is mainly characterized by its educational activity, as it has built several private schools with a view of building a generation that is scholarly distinguished and able to shoulder responsibility and contribute to the development of the motherland while adhering to the tolerant Islamic principles. Al-Najat Charity gives assistance to students who cannot fulfill their school obligations, especially students who are talented and brilliant. It also offers in-kind and moral assistance to the needy from among society members, including citizens and residents. It has established several schools, specialized committees, and Zakah committees to achieve its objectives. The Charity is also one of the earliest Kuwaiti public benefit organizations. In October 2006, Al-Najat Charity established the Computer and Management Studies “CAMS” Training Center, which is supervised by a specialized Board of Directors. CAMS offers distinguished training courses urgently needed by the staff of the charity and voluntary sectors. The Zakah committees are spread all over Kuwait to give assistance and protect the needy and the poor. Al-Najat Charity’s role not only is restricted to the facilitation of alms-giving by conveying alms to rightful beneficiaries only, but also involves undertaking several social activities aimed at communicating with society members, such as Sharia courses, lectures, and cultural symposia, which deal with several topics important to the individual, family, and society, along with various activities that allow communication between citizens and residents on the one hand and the Zakah committees on the other so that both beneficiaries and donors can benefit from the committees’ activities. Al-Najat Charity pays special attention to teaching the Book of Allah (Qur’an) to the youth, children, men, and women of all age groups. For this reason, the Charity has established several Qur’an teaching centers across Kuwait and abroad. Al-Najat Charity also pays attention to the execution of some charity projects outside the State of Kuwait, out of belief in the importance of integration among Muslims, regardless of their geographic boundaries, nationalities, or skin color.
