Islam is deeply misunderstood in South America. Islamophobia is increasing across the region and many converts are left isolated in their own communities.
The lack of high quality resources and educational tools in Portuguese is a significant barrier to improving the knowledge and understanding of Islam. For converts, new Muslims and those interested in Islam in South America there are very few tools to help them practise their faith and the wider community has no means to better understand Islam.
Our new Islamic educational website (Iqara Islam) and Facebook page will have over 600 articles and resources that have been translated into Portuguese by several Brazilian volunteers. It will not only support new Muslims in their faith, but also challenge the anti-Muslim feeling and Islamophobia that is widespread across the continent.
Funds are needed for the development and management of the new website and App and translations of some of the materials.
With this funding we will:
