Orphan sponsorship is not just about providing food and shelter. Our programme provides education to help orphaned children develop the skills they need to make positive changes in their lives and break the cycle of poverty.
We believe that lifelong learning is vital to poverty relief and need your support to help these children through long-term sponsorship.
We provide education to orphaned and impoverished children across Pakistan, India, Ghana, Afghanistan, Somalia, Niger and Uganda. With your support we hope to expand our programme further still and make a real difference to the lives of the youngest and most vulnerable members of society.
Ramadan is a time for reflection and generosity – a time to consider people less fortunate than ourselves, and our obligations to them. We need your help to support another 200 Orphans Appeal through long-term sponsorship.
Just £30 per month can bring smiles to a young child’s life and immense barakah in your own, Insha’Allah.
Hundreds of orphans urgently need your help. Please help us to help them by making a donation today. For only £30 a month we will supply a child with shelter, food, clothing and education – now that’s worth smiling about!
How Do We Look After Our Orphans?Children have many different needs among which love, stability and security are paramount. Education promises young people a bright future full of opportunity, and something as simple as a healthy diet improves well-being immeasurably. ILM provides vulnerable children with holistic care at their most vulnerable time.
We pledge – with your help – to ensure a child’s security with a family and to make sure they receive the high standard of education they deserve. We also monitor their welfare and provide access to medical care should any child fall ill.
Every orphaned child is provided with an education, including books and uniform, free of charge. Children who attend school benefit from high quality teaching, good classroom facilities and a tailor-made curriculum.
Wherever possible, every child is given a nutritious school meal to help maintain concentration and get the best out of the school day.
The children on ILM’s orphan sponsorship programme typically live with a close relative who is able to provide a secure, stable and nurturing environment. ILM orphan workers are in regular contact with the guardian to ensure all of their needs are met.
Each young person receives vaccinations and is assigned a welfare nurse who monitors their health and dental care. This helps ensure children are able to focus in class and stay on top of their studies, whilst reducing absence due to sickness.
Once you sponsor an orphaned child, we will send you an information pack telling you all about the young person you are supporting. We also provide an annual update on how they are getting along, including school reports and exam results. You’ll also receive information about their interests and aspirations – which your sponsorship could help realise.
Please Donate Now!Donations from individuals, businesses and private foundations are the cornerstone of support that these children so desperately need. In addition to sustaining and improving life, donations help buy seeds for crops, train caregivers, pay for supplies, provide elementary education, and more. Your gift or donation to ILM will bring you the joy of knowing you are helping save lives.
A man once said to the Prophet Muhammad [PBUH]: “I have plenty of property, a large family, a great deal of money, and I am a gracious host to my guests. Tell me how to conduct my life and how to spend (my money).”
The Prophet replied: “Give (regular charity) out of your property, for truly it is a purifier, and be kind to your relatives and acknowledge the rights of the poor, neighbours and (those in need who seek your help).”
