About Us

The Association of Muslim Women Professionals and Entrepreneurs was Founded in 2007 by Mrs. Faleela B. Jurangpathy along with other senior Muslim women Professionals and Entrepreneurs with the objective of helping the less privileged in the community as well as to look after the general welfare of the working Muslim Women.  Their main focus is Education, Health care and Family counseling while other related issues are also being covered. Most of these projects are implemented with the Zakath donations received from benefactors to whom we have reached out.

The Association was registered under THE COMPANY ACT no.7 on 29th August 2008 by our legal advisor Mrs. Shahnaz Amin Mahuroof.

The Association welcomes all Professionals and Entrepreneurs who would like to reach out and render their services to the needy and deserving in the society.
