There is not even a single Quran available in majority of Muslim regions, villages, and towns located in this continent. While the whole village people make use of a single Quran of the village, the young students in the village learn from that single Quran of the village.   The Muslim people in Africa learn Quran by their own system despite all the challenges they face with on the way of enlightenment.  There are written the ayahs and hadiths on the wooden boards called ‘Luh’ and these will not be erased until they are learned by heart. When the memorization is completed, the board is erased, and new lessons are written on the board. As there is not a Quran for every student with they can exercise for memorization, their studies are maintained through this system.   Hayrat Aid Association paves the way for providing chances for the students who are studying science with impossibilities with their Quran campaign.

Elifba juzes (parts) are also included in the campaign against a price of TRY 1,00.  ...
