Sakinah Community Trust is a grant managing body that will make decisions about which community-led projects to support. Initial funding has been provided by the Christchurch Foundation. This is the legacy of the donations that were given to the Muslim community of Christchurch in the aftermath of the tragedy and that were managed by the Christchurch Foundation.
Sakinah Community Trust will ensure that the donations are invested directly towards community initiatives. Sakinah Community Trust will also be seeking further donations, grants and partnerships to continue to support the ongoing work in this area.
