The Local Zakat Initiative are a growing group of British Muslims who are passionate about decentralising and localising zakat. We want to see communities come together and appoint their own zakat collectors who will collect and distribute zakat locally, thereby improving the situation of the Muslims in their towns and cities. We are convinced that by this, we can utterly transform our situation as Muslims here in Britain. We aim to share the stories of Muslims in Britain who are already doing this, and connect with those who are inspired to do the same.
