ILM is a UK registered charity, dedicated to supporting some of the world’s most needy people. We tackle poverty at its root, by improving access to education and providing society’s most vulnerable with opportunities for a better quality of life.
Our core projects are Education, Orphaned Child Welfare & Support, Safe Drinking Water and Healthcare with a focus on Eye Care.
ILM broadly translates into knowledge but the translation of the root word in Arabic علم made of the root characters ع - ل - م has a much wider connotation than its synonyms in English and other Western languages. ‘Knowledge’ falls short of expressing all the aspects of 'ilm. Knowledge in the Western world means information about something, divine or corporeal, while 'ilm is an all-embracing term covering theory, action and education.
