Zamani Foundation Granted 501(c)(3) Status By the United States Government.

Zamani Foundation, an international humanitarian organization, today announced it has been granted 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status by the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The IRS has classified the Zamani Foundation as a public charity, which means that contributions to the organization are tax exempt; this is often a requirement to qualify for foundation grants and to receive funding from donors.

Mr. Mustafa Zamani founded the Zamani Foundation. An entrepreneur of Afghan descent, Mr. Zamani is committed to providing shelter, tools of education and teaching trade skills to children in indigent communities of the most underprivileged countries ravaged by poverty and civil war. Along with education and trade school training, the foundation provides homes for orphans with other related developmental opportunities for disadvantaged youth. The nascent start of the foundation was established in 1998 with the creation of the Zamani Computer Institute for Afghan refugees in Peshawar, Pakistan.

Mr. Zamani believes "Our mission is educating youth for a life of opportunity and hope. The foundation will create long-term, positive change in the lives of children in need in the Afghanistan and around the world. My hope is that children will grow up educated, safe, healthy and able to thrive in an increasingly global economy."

"Receiving 501(c)(3) status was critical for our development as it provides the possibility for others to contribute to our work, alleviating child suffering in war-torn and under-developed countries," Mr. Zamani also noted.  

Giving back and helping disadvantaged children is the basic design for which the foundation was formed. While the current focus of the foundation is on the Afghanistan region, the foundation is a global organization focused on providing education and opportunities to the disadvantaged children of the poorest communities of the world.
