The Mailafiya Foundation
We at Mailafiya Foundation (MAILAFIYA FOUNDATION FOR WIDOWS - MFW) are actively involved in education, skill acquisition, health and financial empowerment schemes for widows in rural communities. We create programs and invest in people and organizations that harness the best impulses of entrepreneurship, and innovation, to drive exponential impact.

In the light of the Godly guidance and inspiration, The Mailafiya Foundation through the care and HARD WORK by the founder, Hajiya Halima Abubakar, has vowed to keep on carrying out charity works, contribute to enhance the welfare, social and economic well-being of people and provide outstanding and high quality services that can accommodate the requirements and needs of all those benefiting from the organization's various services.

And say you. 'Work on, now Allah will behold your work and so His messenger and the Muslims' (Qur'an :: Surah At-Tauba Verse 105)
