Awqaf SA ….in just about everything


Projects Policy

Awqaf SA either initiates or contributes to sustainable community development projects and activities aimed at community empowerment. Some projects and activities are “broad-based” (i.e. those that are intended to impact on the broader community) while others are locally based i.e. those that have a local community impact. Broad based projects and activities would typically have a much wider outreach than  locally based ones.


Awqaf SA enters into partnership and cooperation MOU’s, where appropriate, with a variety of organizations and institutions to maximise community participation and success.
