The agreement provides for cooperation between the two parties to achieve their mutual goals through the implementation of joint projects, programmes and activities on the promotion of education, culture and communication; foster social and humanitarian work; boost teaching Arabic to non-Arabic speakers; promote dialogue between cultures, civilizations and religions; revive, safeguard and spread Islamic heritage; celebrate Islamic civilization’s prominent figures and publicize their contributions throughout history; and address the issues of people with special needs.

The Foundation also provides educational and religious services for Muslim communities with limited financial resources, as well as humanitarian, charitable, relief and medical services for people in distress as a result of drought, famines, and natural and human disasters.
