One Ummah Foundation is a 501c3 charity dedicated to eliminating child labor by breaking the cycle of illiteracy and poverty in underdeveloped countries.


One Ummah Foundation brings hope to families and communities via volunteer support and charitable donations to:


  • provide material support that allows a child to go to school

  • develop infrastructure that supports children moving forward in life

  • progress families towards self-sufficiency 

  • stabilize families and alleviate suffering due to a humanitarian crisis


The primary goal of the One Ummah Foundation is to reduce the incidence of child labor by creating greater opportunity for education and by reducing families’ need to rely on their children as income-earners freeing the children to attend school.

One Ummah Foundation believes in creating long-term relationships with existing organizations who intimately understand the need and can deliver the solution directly. We believe this to be the most effective way to create and sustain change and positive impact. These organizations are operated independently of the One Ummah Foundation; however, any funding provided to these organizations is used as designated by OUF and is tracked to ensure that they are only used for the purposes to which they are designated.


The One Ummah Foundation is built on the values of pluralism and humanitarianism. Pluralism is the concept that humankind can live together in our diversity, accepting and understanding each other's belief systems. The principle of humanitarianism shows us that true humanity is found when we build systems of justice with acceptance of diversity where all of us can live together in harmony. This philosophy is exemplified by a story told about the beginnings of civilization by anthropologist Margret Mead:
