Gainhope is the Project of UK Islamic Mission (UKIM), which is a UK registered charity (250275) since 1962.

UKIM efforts are underpinned and driven by the Islamic faith and values. Islam teaches that building the foundations of community life on faith, spirituality and morality is essential to ensure people remain upright, just, peaceful and conscious of their social obligations. With these foundations people find purpose and meaning, become motivated to live a moral life, take care of others, and promote peace, respect and dignity for all people. Moral and spiritual foundations give rise to a caring and sharing community life, which in turn, produces a just and peaceful society. A society in which citizens live in dignity encourages a fair and just distribution of wealth. This consequently stimulates material and economic development, prosperity, development and growth of knowledge and wisdom, and hence human progress. Islam teaches that a society in which people are driven by self-worship, material goals alone, arrogance, selfish objectives, short-term gains, greed for power and wealth, will lead to the eventual social disintegration and weakening of society.

Through its nationwide network of more than 50 mosques and Islamic centres, the UKIM today serves the community, provides Islamic education to over 5000 Muslim children and raises funds for relief and welfare projects that are aimed at helping people and alleviating their suffering. The UKIM centres also make available information on Islam to schools, libraries, prisons, hospitals, churches, as well as to individuals who request it. Our branches organise public programmes, mosque open days, exhibitions, and setup leaflets and books stalls in public places for distribution. Some of our centres provide food parcels to those in need. They also regularly invite local schools and organisations to visit the mosques. Fellow non-Muslims are encouraged to visit our centres to discuss Islam over tea/coffee or dinner. We have raised millions of pounds to help the poor and needy in UK and Internationally.

In addition, GainHope can help to organise Islam Awareness Weeks, Islam Taster Days, stalls and exhibitions, as well activities, exercises and events on Muslim beliefs, etc., at schools, colleges and Universities. In many cases, we can supply the material at no cost to the institution.

GainHope also has a series of speakers who are available to cover topics relating to the Islamic faith. We would be happy to attend school assemblies, classroom discussions and support pupils with visits to local Mosques or with material that they may need for their studies.

GainHope values the interaction and working with people of other faiths and indeed, people of no faith. We have all been created by our all Loving Creator and are of one family. It is important that we all understand each other and through this develop a culture of mutual respect and value. We welcome the opportunity to reflect, learn and share beliefs and experiences, and championing goodness in society.
