"We have the power to empower."

Every child has the potential to be great, provided that they are presented with the opportunity. Some of the brightest minds in our country can’t pursue their dreams because of financial setbacks, and are forced into low-income jobs, turning it into a vicious cycle. At Karnataka Zakat and Charitable Trust (KZCT), we believe cheap prom dresses that this problem can be eradicated by starting at its root - through education. A simple headstart can change a student’s life, allowing them to support themselves and their families in the future. The student benefits, his/her family benefits and the country benefits through them.

Karnataka Zakat & Charitable Trust (KZCT) is a Community Social Enterprise, based on the concept of Collective Zakat and the belief that such an initiative can bring about a dramatic change in the lives of several of the underprivileged sections of our community, through investment in their education.

Modeled after the Hyderabad Zakat & Charitable Trust (HZCT) , KZCT hopes to emulate the efforts of HZCT in the State of Karnataka. H.Z.C.T, in coordination with GBK Charitable Trust and Foundation for Economic and Educational Development, has spent 44.03 Crores (US$ 9.78 Million) and supported over 120,000 students for higher and professional education over the last 18 years.

KZCT believes that empowerment of the underprivileged sections through education is a sure formula to eliminate poverty, establish social justice and thereby help in the nation building effort of our country.Charity is about being proactive, and KZCT aims to be a catalyst for change by focusing on the greatest need – educating the future of our nation.
