BOARD OF DIRECTORS
In 1975, a long-held vision to help the less fortunate lead one man to establish a federally registered charitable foundation called the North American Muslim Foundation (NAMF). In its initial days, the organization’s founder Mohammad Kabir Farooqui would collect $12 a year from each one of his donors in Canada and the U.S. He would then send this money to Pakistan and India, in order to cover the educational expense of children and youth. It was through his tireless efforts and strong commitment that he single-handedly managed to make a difference to over 40,000 children for 27 years.
In 2002, Farooq Khan became the first Executive Director of North American Muslim Foundation. With his professionalism and expertise he was able to transform the organization’s one room location at Midland and Sheppard into the foundation’s current 35,000 square feet facility, located at 4140 Finch Avenue East. Farooq Khan’s vision, leadership and strategic planning allowed NAMF’s programs to reach globally, making a difference in countries such as Pakistan, India, Sir Lanka, Bangladesh, Guyana, Syria, Indonesia, Somalia and Haiti. As a result of his tireless efforts, NAMF has been recognized as one of the leading Muslim organizations in Canada.
Today, NAMF consists of a full-time Islamic school. NAMF also offers a plethora of programs for Muslim and non-Muslim communities. North American Muslim Foundation operates in several countries and works side by side with various partner organizations, locally and globally, that share its aim to foster human dignity through sustainable development and growth.
