A lot of people ask why we should care about people so far away from us. To that we would like to say,
why shouldnt we care? It is the common thread of humanity that connects us.
The reality is that making a difference isnt as difficult as it may seem. The feeling and intention to make
a difference in this world is the first step.
Is it not human nature to want to help one another? The real purpose of life is to use our mind, body and
speech to help others. If you disagree with us, you would not be reading our annual report. So thank you
for giving your time, your support, and your love to help those who really need it.
Each of our projects is supported solely by Thaakat Foundation. Over the last 7 years, you have put your
faith in us. This has allowed us to change the world in ways we never imagined.
We provide for a free education for hundreds of children in Ghana and Pakistan, but unfortunately the
complex economics of family finances pose a problem larger than what we can solve quickly.
Our concerns include not only convincing children to come to school, but pulling an income source from a
family who lives on less than $2 a week. As we work to grow the schools, we will also continue to develop
programs that will help communities towards economic independence.
In the village of Blama Perri in Sierra Leone, we completed our state-of-the-art maternal health care
facility in April 2014. Local community members refer to it as a small America. It is the only building
for hundreds of miles with light around the clock, and it has become a safe haven for mothers, babies,
adults and children. Sierra Leone has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world; we want to
help them earn a more positive record, one healthy baby at a time.
The year has been challenging but hopeful. As we opened the Fatmata Maternity Center in Sierra Leone,
Ebola struck the country. The death, the heartache, and the orphans that came with the epidemic was on
our minds every day .Today, thanks to the education and awareness campaigns you helped to fund in the
face of the disease, our district of Pujehun is the first one to earn the title of Ebola Free.
We are so honored that you have chosen us as your worthy cause. Every dollar reminds us that we must
move forward and challenge ourselves. It reminds us that we have people behind us who allow us to
succeed.
Thank you so much for being our guiding light.

Statement for Fiscal Year 2014 Explained

Explanation of Financial Inputs/Outputs 2014


A. Our income came from 4 main areas. These wereGeneral Donations, Corporate Contributions,
Sponsorships and Chapter Fundraisers. We are so honored to share that almost 85% of donations ($96,355)
came from YOU, the general public. 10% of donations ($10,924) came from Corporate
Contributions/Sponsorships. These contributions are often received on behalf of employee matches,
contributions from the company on behalf of employee volunteer hours or grants to support our programs
that the company has felt in close alignment to and in support of. 5% of donations ($5250) came from our
dedicated university chapters.
B. Donations disbursed to maintain, grow and progress our charitable projects are known as Project
Expenses. Thaakat is the sole financial supporter and manager of our projects (located in Ghana, Pakistan
and Sierra Leone) thus we have oversight on every dollar spent. We make sure our donations are stretched
far to make as much of a difference as is possible. Any donations required to sustain these projects will fall
under this category. These are things such as teacher salaries, construction, books, healthcare and
medicines. Emergency relief will also fall in this category. We will do what we can not only to progress our
adopted communities but to ensure their daily health, safety and security.

Your support has allowed us to


donate more than $106,000
to support people in need. This
is $19,000 more than what
we donated last year and 4

times as much as we donated

Please note that your support has allowed us to prioritize


more than $106,000 for people in need this year. This is
$19,000 more than what we were able to give back last
year and 4 times ($25,000) what we were able to give
back in 2011. Your donations have helped us to not only
launch our very own healthcare center in rural Sierra
Leone this year, but they have helped us to provide
resources at our three project sites that have made it
easier to get through the day (ie. transportation,
healthcare, food, counseling)

C. Our overhead expenses ($10,693) from 2014 have


decreased by 30% since 2012. This decrease is attributed
to less expensive event venues, fewer events and most
importantly sponsors who have been willing to provide us
resources at our events so that we do not need to rent / buy things such as projectors, screens, mics,
speakers etc.

in 2011.

A large portion of these overhead expenses was also dedicated to fundraising expenses for 4 major events
(renting of venue, food, insurance) and for financial management and reporting of our accounts by a third
party vendor. With the growth in funds, we felt it most appropriate to leverage a third party to help us
maintain accountability to the public and government.
**It is important to note that all overhead expenses are fully covered by corporate contributions, sponsors
and internally raised funds. 100% of public donations are reserved for our charitable projects.
D. Why is Net Ordinary Income negative? Weve donated EVERYTHING that came in to us in 2014. We
truly put our donations to work and thankfully had some cushion to cover needs beyond what we raised this
year thanks to retained income from 2013.

Spring 2014 Volunteer Event


Peace House (New York, NY)
As part of our #breakthesilence campaign, this spring, Thaakat
Foundation visited the New York Asian Women's Center with
volunteers to spend an afternoon with children and residents at the
shelter. Thaakateers and residents enjoyed an interactive day with
lunch and fun games and activities for the children.
Volunteers also took part in gardening in the "Peace Garden", a
garden adopted by Thaakat in previous years, to plant herbs,
vegetables and flowers that women and children can tend to and use
every day in their very own kitchens.
We are always excited and grateful for the opportunity to work with
the center. The New York Asian Women's Center helps women and
their children overcome domestic violence and other forms of abuse
by empowering them to govern their own lives. By providing a
shelter with services, NYAWC works to raise public awareness
about violence against women and acts as an agent of social
change.

Winter 2014 Volunteer Event:


Hamdard Center (Chicago, Illinois)
Celebrating the holidays at the Hamdard Center has become an annual
tradition for Thaakat. This year, the Thaakat Chapter at the University of
Illinois at UIC (Thaakat UIC) took charge and gathered over 30 volunteers
to spend the afternoon with loving seniors and help spread joy and happy
spirits.
The Hamdard Center is a Multilingual, Multi-cultural Social & Heath Service
agency dedicated to serving the South Asian, Middle Eastern and the
Bosnian communities in Illinois. Every year, we are greeted at the center by
over 40 seniors who look forward to interacting with Thaakateers and
engaging in fun activities.
Thaakat UIC planned a day that allowed for arts and crafts, delicious lunch
and conversations, games of musical chairs, singing along to Christmas
carols and gift exchange. The purpose of this event is to create excitement
and appreciation for different cultures. While doing this, we not only learn to
respect all backgrounds in our local community, but also learn about the
importance of respecting values, elders and all others around us.
Hamdard holiday get together has quickly become one of our favorite
events. We love seeing the friendly faces and helping them smile by
spreading thaakat, peace and love every single year. We hope to continue
spreading the joy in the many years to come.

These are just a few of the dozens of volunteer


14 activities organized
by our national board and campus chapters every year.

Service is one of the most fundamental aspects of being a


responsible global citizen. The members of the founding
board of Thaakat Foundation at OSU and I see it as our
responsibility to give back to the world around us, and at
the same time encourage service and volunteerism on our
college campus. We feel that a Thaakat Foundation chapter
on our campus is exactly what we need to achieve these
goals.
SABEEN SIDIKI, FOUNDING PRESIDENT, THE OHIO STATE
UNIVERSITY

I decided to start Thaakat at NYIT after hearing about the


foundation from my friend. After doing some research, I
learned what Thaakat Foundation stands for and how it
empowers youth to really bring a different to the world. I
loved the idea and knew it was something I wanted to
share with others.
ASHNA MEH, FOUNDING PRESIDENT, NYIT

(New Jersey)- Hoopfest Charity


Tournament

Eager to help Righteous in his cause for a


free school in Ghana, we knew we had to
fundraise and we had to do it quick.
This event helped us to bring in more than
$4000 in donations to support the addition
of teaching staff and provisions of books,
supplies and meals for children at our
school.

(Chicago, Illinois) Summer End


BBQ

The Black Tie Takes a Break


We wanted to take a break from our formal
fundraising events and give youth a chance
to network, engage and relax in a casual
atmosphere. Our local campus chapters
joined us and families and friends from near
and far helped us with volunteering and
grilling.
Thanks to our sponsors at Chic Treats,
Taaza2U and ParDesi grocery store- we had
plenty of delicious food and snacks to go
around. Funds from this event supported
our Ebola Prevention and Awareness fund
for our work in Sierra Leone.

Feed The Need: 5th Annual Charity Basketball Tournament (Oakbrook Park District, Oakbrook IL)
Feed The Need was Thaakat Foundations 5th annual charity basketball tournament in 2014, which
raised a tournament record setting $12,000 in funds for our various Global Projects. The two-day
tournament commenced November 22nd at the Oak Brook Park District in Oak Brook, IL.
As this is Thaakats largest fundraiser event and so close to year end, our team begins preparing
months in advance to make sure we reach our goals. Not only does our team prepare, but so do the
participating teams as they undergo what is considered to be two days of grueling competition,
showing up early mornings, half-awake and leaving in the evening wide-eyed and exhausted. To keep
spirits high, many fans arrived with signs not only to shore up their favorite teams, but to also support
our global projects. To get further involvement from the crowd, a nail biting free throw contest was
held for both boys and girls resulting in prizes for the winners. In addition, the Chicago Boyz Acrobatic
team performed an exciting routine for the crowd. There were plenty of other activities to participate
in such as the raffle prizes and a photo booth with some out of the box props.
At the end of the day (or two), one team walked away as champions.
Nonetheless, no team truly acknowledged defeat as each dribble of the ball on the court represented a
bounce closer to a better world. All proceeds were generated from registration fees, food sales,
Thaakat accessories, and of course our beloved sponsors. So where did all the money go? It helped us
to launch lifesaving programs at our project sites, helped to pay our teachers on time and helped us to
carry our work on without delay through the end of the year. But the fight doesnt end here. As long as
there is a need, Thaakat will continue to hold their ever improving tournaments every year for as long
as it can.
Thank you Tournament Planning Leads: Saad Bawany, Ruhail Moffat, Amani Memon
Tournament MVP: Vince Kmiec (PYP)
Congratulations to Our Winners- 1st Place: Team PYP, 2nd Place: Team WARRIORS

MISS YAMNA DILSHAD AHMAD SHARES A THANK YOU


ENGLISH TEACHER- DREAMS FOR KACHRA
KUNDI
I teach English at the campus in Jam Chakro
village. Every day, our Suzuki would pick us
up. All of us teachers would get to school this
way. However, as more teachers joined our
staff, our journey became difficult. Many of us
would have to sit in laps, some would stand
and hang onto the outside bars of the vehicle.
It became a point of tension. It was not very
safe or comfortable. Thanks to all of you, we
now have a coaster. You all have relieved us of
our troubles. We can sit and talk, we can do our school work. We can use this time to do
more productive things. We pray that God blesses you for helping us.
A special thank you to the One Ummah Foundation for their partnership.

THE YEAR OF GROWTH


The community of Kachra Kundi survives largely on income through waste picking. This
year began with over 400 students; today we have more than 550 students in attendance.
The school campus was launched in 2011 in partnership with the Idara Al Khair Welfare
society. It sits across from the largest dump in Karachi, Pakistan. The proximity provides a
school that is walking distance for these children and an outlet beyond the dumps. Our
students have started to dream of a life beyond pollution, illness and poverty.
Our principal often times tells us that the success of this school is not determined by how
many doctors and lawyers graduate from our classrooms, but rather how many well
balanced, giving, and responsible citizens gradate from this school.

Over the course of an 11 year civil war in Sierra Leone, the


community of Blama Perri was burned to the ground, this
was its rebirth. Our year in Sierra Leone couldnt have
started off better. The district health officer applauded our
work on completing a state of the art 6 room healthcare
facility. Our facility had furniture, supplies and most
importantly a refrigerator and lights (running around the
clock) thanks to our solar power capable facility. Our first
nurse, Mariama, was appointed to our quarters and
villages referred to this center as a small America. This
center, which had been in the works for almost two years,
was a reality.

In April of 2014, our community celebrated with a grand


opening of Fatmata Maternity Center. The center is named
after Fatmata Mansary, a loved woman in the community
who kept her home and heart open for all in need.
We had a record number of patients in our first month and
our very first healthy baby was born. But by June, Ebola
had spread quickly throughout the country. We were in the
hot spot of the disease outbreak. The Illness spared no one,
especially not the children and elderly. As families crowded
together to care for the ill, they didnt realize it would be
the very reason that entire generations of families
succumbed to the deadly virus. Towns became ghastly,
orphans were crying in the streets and hospitals were out of
beds. Those who were ill were left to starve and bleed to death. Our dreams quickly turned into a
nightmare.

WE HAD TO THINK FAST. PROTECTING PEOPLE WAS


NOW OUR RESPONSIBILITY.

25

How could we PREVENT the spread of disease? This was our


most immediate concern.
After consulting with our nurse, the district and our village manager, we decided it would
be best to govern an education and awareness meeting. More than 300 nurses, teachers,
parents, shop keepers and doctors from nearby villages were invited to discuss steps
towards prevention. At this meeting, we distributed safety and isolation materials as well
as chlorine buckets. Because transmission of the disease was through saliva, sweat and
bloodwe wanted to ensure these chlorine disinfectants were put on the door steps of
every public facility.

We had to ensure the proper resources and instructions were in


place.
Our nurse received official training and kits for use at the center. Should a patient
approach with a fever, they were immediately referred to the district hospital. Our village
manager Philip was professionally trained in sensitization of the disease. He was also
chosen as a lead volunteer by local government officials to help locate and assist victims
during the 3 day Ebola lockdown.

Short term emergency assistance was important to providing


hope to villagers.
During the 3 day government lockdown, everything was closed. The country had come to a
standstill. Roads were blocked by floods. People were starving to death. With your
support, we sent over emergency funds to support at risk villagers. We also worked closely
with trusted community nurses and spiritual doctors to encourage people to continue to
visit the health care facility. We wanted people to trust that we were there to help them.
By the end of the year, our district of Pujehun was one of the first to earn the title of Ebola
Free Zone. Thanks to the support from the district, government and leadership of our
health care staff, the virus has departed from Pujehun. A community is considered to be
free of Ebola virus transmission when 42 days (double the 21-day incubation period of the
Ebola virus) has elapsed since the last patient in isolation became laboratory negative for
EVD.

Righteous began his school


with just two kids. Thanks to you we now have 105
students in attendance, brand new classrooms and
a bright new yellow school bus!
This bus now allows students from more than 6
communities to attend Konadu. Our school
continues to be voted one of the best in the district.
Not only are we providing an education to students
but we continue to look for economic growth
opportunities for the village of Tanoboase. We are brainstorming plans for a
mushroom and livestock farm which will provide many of the villages single
mothers with vocational training opportunities and an income.

PROFESSOR SUGLO CECILIA SHARES HIS GOALS


KONADU BASIC SCHOOL - CLASS 3
By the end of the term I want each student from my class to be able to:
Read text books on their own
Construct good sentences on their own in both the Ghanian and English
language
Use arbitrary units to measure time, specifically to be able to tell time by
the hour, half-hour and quarter-hour. I want them to be able to tell time
and measure time on the clock

Alan Chorun
President, Young Vision Africa
As our school expands at Dreams for Kachra Kundi in
Pakistan so do its services. Not only did we launch an
emergency medical fund, weekend counseling and
purchase a brand new bus; we have been able to offer an
accelerated adult learning program.
There are many adults in the community who want to take
a 1-2 year course to help them gain some basic
mathematical, writing and language skills and they can now
do that through our campus. We will continue to innovate
and provide more resources to help fill this gap.

When our principals car broke down earlier in the year we didnt
know what to do. Urgently we launched a fundraising campaign
that helped us to finance a brand new bus.
How did this help? Class now starts on time because we dont
need to make several trips to pick up students AND enrollment
has tripled because children from further away communities now
have access to our school! Special Thank You to Liz Zweifler.
