Bani Adam also known as Children of Adam (“CoA”) though a US based but globally operated organization; aims to inculcate Islamic doctrine and values within the life of today’s youth.

CoA strongly affirms that to achieve its core objective of generating an active, purpose bound and effective society nurturing youth is the key however it equally encompasses that nurturing people who matter to today’s youth and ultimately address the society as a whole.

In absence of authentic value base guidance and support a society inspires with distorted  elements, adopts a mind set of visionless and mission free life. Ultimately a society in general and youth in particular becomes a victim of resulting derailment and as well as mental health challenges.

CoA – Knowledge and Research domain  introduces the treasure of spritual guidance and  support to enlighten the hearts and seek to engage minds to achieve a purposeful life. CoA brings the comprehensive approach of healthy lifestyle and Humanitarian RELIEF projects for physical and spritual empowerment.
