The Student Relief Fund was established in 2006 by a few Muslims in South Africa. Its vision is empowerment through education. The Fund has, since its inception, provided bursaries for needy students at universities, colleges, and at Darul Ulooms doing the Aalim/Aalima courses.


Courses students are currently studying range from BSc in Chemical Engineering, Journalism, Nursing to BCom Law. Students have qualified in Islamic Studies, BCom Marketing, BCom Human Resource. Management, Economic Sciences (MSc), BSc Engineering, Fire Fighting, Quantity Surveying (Hon), Teaching and Information Technology Accounting.
Currently 71 students have their fees paid by the Student Relief Fund, with 10 expected to complete their studies this year. Majority of the students are Muslim, although non Muslims are also accepted. Males and females can qualify for a bursary which does not have to be paid back. The bursaries are determined on a student’s progress. The Fund relies on donations from the community and R1,765,766 was spent last year on tuition fees, books, food allowances, students’ medical aid and transport.
The Ameer Fund is Moulana Nazir Jassat. In total, about 400 students have benefited from this Fund till now. The Fund is a registered NPO and PBO.
