“Imagine giving something to the “rights-holder” and he/she makes a good dua for you” – Shahnaaz Paruk
Shahnaaz Paruk was born in Durban to a family in the clothing manufacturing industry. She received her early education at the Ridge Park College before going onto the Lockhat Islamia School where she matriculated. She went to university to study media and communications before joining the family business in the Marketing and Human Resources Department. Next came the Gordon Institute of Business Science.
She then decided that she wanted to be of service to the community and joined SANZAF where she worked for a few years before moving to Islamic Relief South Africa. Amongst the projects she worked on at Sanzaf was the organisation’s development of skills for individuals so that they could hold down sustainable jobs, and at Islamic Relief she was responsible for multiple roles during her tenure at the organisation. She is now the CEO of Penny Appeal South Africa.
Penny Appeal’s philosophy is that of affordable charity, which includes all people being able to contribute toward changing the lives of millions. Small Change, Big Difference.
