Bismillah Aid have developed a sponsorship program where we ensure that orphans and vulnerable children can access quality education.
In the UK, children’s lives are shaped by their education. However, in the third world countries having a good education and teachers can be a life changing experience. We aim to help families escape the cycle of poverty through various educational and livelihood programs. Many times, we learn by listening to communities about their specific needs and working to fulfil them.
The category of children we have in our institutions vary, but the main four categories are as follows:
Around the world, millions of children never see the inside of a classroom – meaning they miss out of life-changing opportunities. Poor - this is when the Parents cannot afford feeding the children, paying travelling fees and education, together.
This is when the children either run away or are forced to leave homes where they suffer poverty, violence, abuse and neglect. They find themselves living on the streets because there is nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to. We work to reach children as soon as they arrive on the streets and intervene before an abuser can.
These are actual Hifz children who alongside with their parents desire their children to become an ambassador of the religion. Making literal the Arabic meaning of Hafiz – having the Quran protect them through; memorising and safeguarding the Quran.
This category is similar to ‘voluntarily enrolled’, but these children continue the tradition of learning Hifz, like their fathers have.
