MAKENI ISLAMIC SOCIETY TRUST was established in 1972 with one building which served as a Madrassa and for daily Salaat as there was no masjid that time. There was also seven (7) staff housesfor some essential workers. In 1996, the building was turned into a Teacher's College accomodating First Primary Teacher's College in Zambia. This brilliant idea was suggested by SHEIKH ABDULKARIM KHEIRRY, a Sudanese seconded to MIST by IQRAA CHARITABLE FOUNDATION an Islamic Organisation based in Saudi Arabia.


This first Islamic Teacher's College in Zambia was founded in 1996 to supplement Government effort. Intially the college was a two year Zambia Basic Education Teacher's Diploma Course (ZATEC) approved programme and graduated over three hundred (300) Muslim Teachers under this programme.
