Our Story

How it all started

We’ve always been an extremely vibrant charity since day one, Sadaka was founded and registered with the Charity Commission in January 2017, and was born out of a belief that growing islamophobia could be challenged through showing the peaceful and charitable nature of Islam. 

 

Back then our three founding trustees had to face the hard grind of completing the paperwork related to setting up the charity and registering it as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) while roaming the streets of Reading to deliver food parcels and speak directly to those living on these streets this has helped us drive Sadaka to what it is today.

 

Sadaka is a charity that provides twice-weekly free, nutritional and warm meal service, alongside essentials to those struggling financially, including refugees. 

 

We have also recently launched a training program called StepUp. This is dedicated to the service users who wish to take up courses in basic job-related and employability skills.
