Zaytoon International is an organization committed to empowering individuals and improving communities by providing training and resources to promote economic and social progress. We are a partnership of various governmental and non-governmental entities, students, academics, and individuals all dedicated to improving the world around them. Zaytoon International transcends individual religious, political, and social ideologies and as such does not encourage or endorse particular viewpoints or specific changes. Zaytoon instead focuses on providing tools and resources allowing the individuals from within the community to make the changes they see as important to that community. By teaching, mentoring, providing access to capital and other resources, Zaytoon International provides the means for individuals to improve the world around them in a sustainable manner as growth and progress is organic and grassroots in nature. Our objective is to help individuals start businesses, build social programs, or accomplish any other goals they may have for the improvement of their communities, their families, and themselves.

The world is changing and although it is rather presumptuous for us to individually believe we know what is best for others, we can empower others helping them to do what they believe is best for themselves.
