45.06% of the world’s wealth is possessed by just 0.7% of the world’s population which is the smallest group. While, the largest group encompasses 73% of the population and they possess less than 2.4% of the world’s wealth. At TUF, we recognize this bitter reality and bring alive projects that stress on recognizing the individuals who suffer utmost due to this atrocity in terms of hunger, shelter and education. Hence, we focus on inspiring the fortunate ones to share their wealth and spread happiness in the process and throughout this, highlighting the spirit that we are giving the less fortunate what truly belongs to them.
Started in 2008, our initiative to fight hunger was given impetus by our mentor, Syed Habeeb

A 200-year-old Urdu school named Yelagonda Palya School was selected to serve as our first knowledge center; where mentoring was done for 2-3 hours a week for all grades by teachers, volunteering professionals, college students, graduates, and even some immensely gifted home-makers. By 2013, as the number of enrolments in schools increased, the Ants2Giants cohort expanded to a ratio of 1:3. Today, we stand proud to the testimony of fantastic results in exams. The Ants2Giants team has left no stone unturned to combat the inadequacies of the ailing education system in pseudo urban slums. Adding a feather to our cap, we now have more than 50 volunteers!Donate NowGift A Home, initiated in 2016, is an ongoing project taken up by The United Foundation.
Dilapidated huts and dwellings in the slums of Bangalore are identified through a systematic survey. Our survey team verifies the owners and the relevant documents are authenticated. An estimate is then done by our regular building contractor. Fund raising is done through various channels and construction is completed within a stipulated time.Donate Now
The United Foundation conducts various events throughout the year for its members and volunteers. Some of the prominent events are :
The United Ramadan Kit
The 300 richest people have the same wealth as the 3 billion poorest people. Our community is at the receiving end of this increasing inequality. Distribution of wealth within the community is the only solution to overcome this steep disparity between the rich and the poor. Initiated in 2014, our volunteers collected zakat (obligatory charity on wealth) to buy basic essentials. Over 50 families who were most vulnerable were provided with Ramadan Kits in Ramadan, the month of fast. This project was most successful last year as full-fledged surveys were conducted and the most deserving families were narrowed down.
Ramadan kits with essential groceries like rice, sugar, cereals, dates, cooking oil etc. worth a total of 2000/- INR were distributed to more than 1000 families, free of cost. The happiness on their faces is etched in our hearts. This project was nothing but a success. We hope and aim to feed many more families in the upcoming Ramadan.Donate to cause
Learning by serving them.
The Ramadan kit distribution was the first event of TUF I had been to. From packing the kits to the distribution was a tremendous joy as this was the first time I was doing something like that. In addition, the Barakah and Sawab of helping the needy in the month of Ramadan was a humungous moment. It was an utter joy to meet the volunteers who share the same interests and motive. From then onwards, I have been a part of TUF and been an active volunteer past two year.

I tutored kids of about 7-14 years of age at the A2G tuition centres. It was a gratifying and humbling experience to impart knowledge to these wonderful kids. The children are eager to learn and have great potential. I commend TUF's beautiful initiative to make a difference in these children's lives and I hope this initiative reaches new heights.

TUF's taken many initiatives for the betterment of the helpless and needy people in the past few years. But, what caught my primary attention are the ABB Ration Distribution and Ramadan/Eid Kits distribution. Ocean in a jug, packing of the kits is fun and delivering them to the families gives pure happiness. Plus, it gave me exposure to the real world by being on the site, seeing their condition of living. You're surrounded by all sorts of positivity in the TUF family.

You cannot understand the magnitude of the crisis until you witness it. Walking on the narrow slum streets, under the curious gaze of little kids, lifting the hem of my Abaya to prevent it from soiling, passing through tiny houses barely keeping themselves together, as I hopped a few puddles and skipped some potholes it hit me hard that this is the reality for some people. The life I live is a dream to some, and yet how ungrateful of me to complain over trivial issues? We stepped into their houses, brought them ration to last a few weeks, were witness to their smiles while our hearts gazed at the silent testimonies to their agony. Their only fault? They were too poor to afford a living. Our biggest mistake? The rich are so busy becoming richer that we leave the poor to get poorer.

My first association with TUF was A2G tuition center wherein I had to take a fun activity for the kids of DJ Halli center. It was an amazing experience with the kids as their top level energy kept me going throughout! In fact this led me to become an active volunteer of A2G ! Working with this group majorly consisting of young and enthusiastic individuals surely motivated me to become a part of some more initiatives the team runs like survey for ABB ration distribution and Ramadan/Eid kits distribution. Truly an exhilarating and blessed experience! All my best wishes to the team for their continuous efforts towards pleasing Allah and helping uplift our Ummah!
