Food and water are the basis of life. All India Muslim Youth Majlis addresses the roots causes of poverty through long-term solutions that ensure permanent access to nutritious food and clean water. All India Muslim Youth Majlis supports the rural and urban poor towards a dynamic and long lasting strengthening of communities from within.

1 million people can not reach clean water only in Bihar State. All India Muslim Youth Majlis goal is to decrease these numbers by opening hundreds of wells. Alhamdulillah thousands of people can drink clean water by using the wells that were built from your generously paid sadaqa Jariyah.

"Whosoever digs a well will receive reward for that from Allah on the Day of Judgment when anyone among jinn, men and birds drink from it" Hadith Sherif (Bukhari and Muslim).

Water is a basic need of human life. Life and death are linked with the availability and cleanliness of this resource.

According to the United Nation Children’s Fund (UNICEF):
  • Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation, combined with poor hygiene, contribute to the death of more than 1.5 million children under the age of five.
  • 1 bone billion people do not have access to safe water.
  • 2.6 billion live without basic sanitation.
  • Over 980 million children still don't have access to basic sanitation.
  • Millions of people in the developing world, including an estimated 425 million children under the age 18 still do not have access to an improve water supply.
  • Factors such as illness, the daily journey to collect water and the absence of hygienic facilities in School keep older children particularly girls out of class and uneducated perpetuating the cycle of poverty.

All India Muslim Youth Majlis currently operates water and sanitation project in several district around the Bihar.


All India Muslim Youth Majlis Support:
  • Digging water wells in areas that need clean water access
  • Community agricultural projects and small scale farming
  • Traditional knowledge dissemination, sustainability planning, and a focus on local economic vitality.
  • Provide free supply of medicine /Nitrous food or dry food to poor & needy women etc.
  • Setting up of safe drinking water units in rural area & slum area.
  • Create awareness generation program in rural area.
Water is such a precious resource that not a single living creature can survive without it. The most obvious benefit of access to safe water is reduction in disease. In some areas of the world poor people have access to water but which is unfit for human consumption or have to travel for miles on foot to gain access to clean water.

AIMYM continues with this popular project around the world, the installation of water wells / hand pumps in their locality ensures that the women from the villages in poor and barren areas do not have to walk miles to obtain safe clean drinking water.

Your donations will enable All India Muslim Youth Majlis to construct and install hand pumps to abstract clean drinking water in our working place in India, your valuable donations will go towards sanitation schemes also.
On completion of this Sadaqa Jariah project AIMYM will provide you with feedback showing the handpump, nameplate (of a loved one) and its location.

Despite significant economic progress in the past decade, India is home to about 25 percent of the world's hungry poor. Although the country grows enough food for its people, pockets of hunger remain. 
According to government figures, around 43 per cent of children under the age of five years are malnourished and more than half of all pregnancy women aged between 15 and 49 years suffer from anaemia.

Stark inter-state disparities exist with some states better off on all social indicators than the others. The states that suffer from hunger and malnutrition the most include Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Orissa, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.

 For the hungry, every day is about finding enough food to survive: poor farmers cannot afford to risk experimenting with new agricultural methods, when they can barely subsist on a small patch of land. The unemployed don't have a chance to learn new skills if they spend all day scraping a living on the black market. Poverty-stricken communities hit by floods or droughts are too busy looking for food to rebuild infrastructure vital for redevelopment.

Providing food in exchange for work makes it possible for the poor and hungry to devote time and energy to taking the first steps out of the hunger trap.  This is the goal of AIMYM food-for-assets projects. Community members are given food in exchange for work on vital new infrastructure or for time spent learning new skills that will increase the food security of households or communities. 


Projects include:
  • Irrigation, terracing, soil and water conservation. In countries where drought regularly causes food shortages, irrigation can boost crop yields by 100-400%.
  • In India, AIMYM offers food assistance as an incentive for ex-combatants to abandon weapons and learn new skills, which are vital to smooth their path back into society.
  • Poverty often forces farmers to overuse soil and grazing land. The result is barren land and accelerating desertification. AIMYM provides food rations to farmers who practice soil conservation by planting trees.
  • To help communities develop, AIMYM sometimes helps people in villages . They receive food, so they can devote time to the building work without worry about losing income.
  • AIMYM helps people set up home gardening businesses by giving them food assistance as they train. This means later they have a livelihood with which to support themselves.
