Sponsor a Child This Ramadan

Education is a crucial part of helping disadvantaged and displaced children secure a bright future for themselves. The young minds of today need education and educational tools to help them gain the skills and knowledge to empower themselves and their communities to be self-sufficient and successful in the future.

To sponsor a child today is to give that child power to help him or herself and their community tomorrow, and much of our work at Muslim Aid is focused on developing an international education sponsorship programme that will help thousands of kids all over the world.

We strongly believe that it is in the children our future lies. Their livelihood is essential for our survival as a whole and to distinguish ourselves as modern human beings. Educating children and providing them with good healthcare reduces poverty, fights back diseases, improves a healthy atmosphere for living and learning and provides future generations with the tools they need to grow, improve, and become self-reliant.

How to sponsor a child

To this end, much of our fundraising effort is focused on raising awareness of the importance of education for refugees. Meanwhile, we encourage donors such as yourself to look at sponsoring a child overseas with the acute aim of improving their educational prospects. 

In the UK, we are fortunate enough to send our children to school. Our government provides free schooling all the way through to secondary school. However, there are certain parts of the world where education is being denied to the children who live in that area. Education is a privilege in these areas, a luxury only for the wealthy and, as such, it is often the last thing on the minds of those who are displaced by war, famine, or natural disaster. 

This situation is dire and simply serves to perpetuate a negative cycle of poverty and dependency. If these children are not provided with basic education, they will only grow up to become reliant on relief aid and rations. 

Education opens the door to self-reliance and success. Denying children that opportunity forever closes that door on them, forcing them to live a refugee life living on food packages and donated blankets. Education sponsorship is a vital element in helping these communities grow and develop in independence and self-sufficiency.

At Muslim Aid, we are of the opinion that all children should be given the opportunity to get a proper education where they can challenge themselves and grow. The goal is for them to grow up to become responsible individuals who can take care of themselves and even become financially secure enough to assist in relief aid work themselves.

Over the years, Muslim Aid has paired hundreds of children with their respective donors, who oversee their education as well as medical progress and updates. These two will never meet personally, but they will know one another through photographs. Muslim Aid’s Child Sponsorship programme continues to help children realise their aspirations by providing them with an opportunity to nurture their talent and use it in the long run for the good of the community as a whole. Already, so many heart-warming stories are coming through as a result of the education and child sponsorship programmes that we have been working on.

Sponsor a Child this Ramadan 

This Ramadan, take a step towards changing the life of a young boy or girl. Become their sponsor and personally oversee their educational progress. You will be kept updated on all things, including health and education, as well as photographs. Not only will this be a rewarding prospect spiritually, but it will also do good for the betterment of humanity as a whole.
