Salam and hello!
I’m Iman, a Malaysian staff of Groovy Japan.
Japan Islamic Trust (JIT) is raising funds to purchase a school building for International Islamia School Otsuka (IISO) to support the young Muslim generation in Japan.
As the Muslim community growing in Japan, many families hope their children could learn in an Islamic environment. Thus, JIT opened a primary school—International Islamic School Otsuka, in 2017.
Within three years, they have gained about 100 students and expecting more. Currently, it’s inconvenient because the primary school is in two different locations.
To provide better environment for the students, JIT plans to buy a 6-storey building for International Islamic School Otsuka (IISO).
The targeted amount is JPY 315 million (=USD 3million). It will be used to purchase the building, including renovations.
“The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the cause of Allah is that of a grain that sprouts into seven ears, each bearing one hundred grains. And Allah multiplies ˹the reward even more˺ to whoever He wills. For Allah is All-Bountiful, All-Knowing.” (Al-Baqarah 2:261)
JIT also supports students from low-income families with 40% of the students receiving scholarships from them.
Otsuka Masjid was the first place I encountered that offered Islamic education for Muslim children. On my first visit, it was still just a small class. Then, they’ve slowly evolved to become an actual school.
I’m very glad that Muslim families in Tokyo could have better access now.
■[Plan-to-Purchase] Building Location

(3 min. walk from Otsuka Masjid and Otsuka Station)
■Otsuka Masjid (mosque)

Running a school would be expensive as Tokyo has a high cost of living.
You can bank in through Mitsubishi Tokyo UFJ Bank or Japan Post Bank.

Even sharing the info is very helpful ^_^
To be the bridge between Japan and Muslims, Groovy Japan would also like to spread the word of International Islamia School Otsuka (IISO) to everyone.
Please keep sharing!
May all always be blessed by Allah!
