A Grain Of Hope Foundation Inc

Cumming, GA 30028
(678) 852-6993

Services

In determining which programs to undertake or fund, their focus is on the size of the impact on its beneficiaries and the efficiency with which they can deliver it. Their priorities are: * help those who are in the greatest need, especially those who have found themselves in unfortunate circumstances through no fault of their own. * create/fund programs that help people help themselves * supply programs that provide a benefit to the general public * provide educational materials and resources to foster public understanding on the nature of Islam and to promote better relations of those of various faiths.

Started in August 2002, their ClassZoom project provides school supplies for low-income children in the U.S. The program empowers teachers to identify needy students and provides the supplies (or the funds needed to purchase the supplies) to the teacher or school administrator. While it is not a reimbursement program, it seeks to provide additional funds to help those most in need. Recent reports show that 77% of school supplies are paid for by teachers out of their own pockets, but even with this level of devotion, teachers cannot meet the need. www.agrainofhope.org/classzoom.shtml
