We are engaged in advocacy, development and education to champion and grow Islamic economies and the international network of Lariba Cooperative Financial System (LCFS) in Africa.
Our mission is to help shift the prevailing paradigm of economic development, and of the economy as a whole, towards a new system that is ethical, place-based, inclusive, collaborative, and ecologically sustainable.
We are committed to the promotion of ventures for the intellectual nourishment of humanity and the reconstruction of human thought in the light of Revealed Knowledge. Within this commitment, we put research work at the centre of our efforts, with the goal of better understanding and interpreting trends and structures of social-economic phenomena for the advancement of knowledge.
