Article Reference: A Continuous Charity 

A Continuous Charity is dedicated to providing educational support for Muslim students, aiming to equalise the educational system by providing interest-free scholarships. Communities who have historically been underrepresented in the educational system are the target audience for the ACC for Educational Justice initiative. For the first two years, the initiative will be concentrated on supporting African American communities; in subsequent years, it will be expanded to include refugee and Latino populations. 

ACC wants to provide these Muslim minorities with an education devoid of riba, so they may take advantage of chances and go on to have prosperous careers.

ACC Educational Justice Program Mission and Impact

The A Continuous Charity for Educational Justice program aims to serve communities that have been historically underrepresented in the educational system. We will focus on serving the African American communities in the first two years. We will then expand the program to serve the Latino and refugee communities in future years. Ultimately, our goal is to empower these Muslim minorities with a riba-free education to open the doors of opportunities and pave their path toward a successful career.

There is no doubt that there is a definite need for more programs to serve students in underrepresented communities that do not have the same educational opportunities as their peers simply because of their ethnicity, race, or school district. As an organization whose primary mission is to facilitate ease in attaining higher education through riba-free financial assistance, we need to do our part, even if it’s a drop in the ocean.

Lower family wealth among African American families and the decline in state funding for two-year and four-year public colleges ultimately push these students to borrow more money. So, in comparison to white students, African American students are impacted by student debt to a far greater extent.
