There comes a time when every parent departs from their children by leaving this world and every human being, no matter what their age, dreads that day of segregation. Many children living in this time and age are parentless and depend on their society to exist and thrive.
With constant change in economic and social circumstances, ongoing conflicts and political turmoil in many developing and transition countries like Syria, Myanmar, Somalia, Sudan, Mali, Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine, we are faced with many situations where the number of orphans and needy children is constantly increasing. According to UNICEF, there are between 143-210 million orphans in the world. This figure includes children who have lost either both of their parents or one of them.
The problems faced by orphans are complex and impact on their individual age and circumstances. The mental trauma and agony of witnessing warfare or losing parents and family members is not easy to deal with and requires tremendous courage and patience to recover from it and adapt to a new situation.
One might not be able to take away the grief of orphans and needy people but they can extend their hands in generosity to let them know that they are cared for and supported. Since we live in a globalized world, societies are inter-dependent on each other for survival and progress. From this perspective, people living in different regions of the world are responsible to help children in dire need of support and sympathy.
Keeping this in mind, we are trying our best to bring joy in the lives of these kids, however we could.
We visited Idara Al Khair with our team which is a school for orphans and those who couldn’t afford their studies. We met many kids over there and realized that it’s not only orphans who need our help and are our responsibility but there are many other kids as well who are less fortunate, although they have parents and are living with their families but still their families are not able to provide for the basic needs of these kids, no matter how much they wish to.
Keeping that in mind we realized that its our responsibility to help them as much as we could and that’s why we started working on this. And with support of our wonderful donors like you all, we were able to pay one semester fee for 30 girls last month.
These girls were so young and the main festival was near so we wanted to make them happy somehow so we gave them gifts like teddy bears which is a part of another programme of ours.
We felt so happy because we were able to do something for those in need and we think it’s a blessing and for that we wanna thanks to all our donors, because it won’t have been possible without your help!
There are so many lives who are waiting for someone to bring light in their life and we are willing to do that as long as we have all your support.
Together, we are transforming lives!
Zakat is the name of what a Muslim returns out of his or her wealth to the neediest of Muslims for the sake of ALLAH. Its called "Zakaat" because the word is from "Zakaa"" which means to increase, purify and Muslim believe that by donating this money, their wealth will increase and will be purified and Educate a Girl Zakaat is a special project by Educate a Girl which mainl focus on the tuition fee of young girls.
As Educate a Girl is more focused in Girl education but under it we educate girls vocationally and the girls are usually 18-24 years old but Educate a girl Zakaat is for young girls age 4-16 to help them stay in their schools so they could get proper education which further will help them in achieving their dreams.
Girls who are from underserved, lower and middle class backgrounds, lack access to affordable, quality education. Some girls are often unable to continue or afford their studies due to loss of their homes from poverty, terrorism and communal feuds. Some fathers who have lost their jobs or businesses and/or have limited funds, will likely educate only the sons.
We at Educate a Girl couldn’t wait to transform more lives and adding more and more girls in our community to help them achieve their dreams but that’s need a lot of preparation and also support that we seek from our wonderful donors, so we could transform the lives of these girls.
Together we are transforming lives
