In Hyderabad, Ghiasuddin Babukhan’s philanthropic endeavors are illuminating the paths of underprivileged youth through education. His recent acts of kindness, including providing a laptop to Anas Khan and supporting Shakira Kausar’s education, showcase the transformative power of generosity.

Anas Khan, the son of an ambulance driver, received a life-changing gift a brand new laptop upon his admission to the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). Shakira Kausar, despite facing personal loss, is pursuing a B Tech degree in Guntur, thanks to timely assistance from Babukhan and his wife, Shujath Babukhan.

These acts of kindness stem from Babukhan’s belief in the transformative potential of education. Through the Hyderabad Zakat and Charitable Trust (HZCT), founded in 1992, he has been a beacon of hope for the underprivileged. The HZCT’s mission to make quality education accessible has touched countless lives, empowering poor and orphaned youth to create promising futures.

Over three decades, the HZCT has disbursed a remarkable Rs 155 crore in Zakat, benefiting 16.40 lakh individuals. By focusing on education, the Trust not only provides material support but also instills hope and possibility in those in need. Babukhan’s pioneering centralized Zakat collection has redirected funds toward educating less privileged children, resulting in a substantial impact.

The HZCT’s efforts extend beyond education to feeding the poor, women’s empowerment, and community development. Through initiatives like the Foundation for Economic and Educational Development (FEED), Babukhan ensures that critical needs are addressed, fostering hope and empowerment.

In the words of Babukhan, “Education shields children from life’s trials, imbuing them with virtues for a meaningful life.” Through Zakat-funded education, beneficiaries are not only uplifted but also encouraged to give back, creating a cycle of generosity and empowerment.

Together, the HZCT and FEED are shaping a better tomorrow for generations to come. As Babukhan exemplifies, true wealth lies in lifting others, a sentiment that resonates deeply with his commitment to philanthropy.
