Orphanage center: The center was opened in 2010 to educate and care for the orphans. Umul Qura believes that Education is a critical part of the moral development, social development as well as economic development of an individual.
At the moment we looking after 150 orphans (102 boys and 48 girls) from the ages 7 to 14. Also we provide training, educational and employment support for the orphans above the age of 15.
Currently, we have 100 orphan children on our waiting list in need of sponsorship for full boarding. Likewise, wehave the capacity to cater for 250 orphans should we find sponsors.
Currently, We are sustained by short-term individual and zakat donations. As we continue to fundraise but are in urgent need of long-term funding, sponsorship, and donations in order to continue to meet the needs of these orphan children which are amongst a growing number.
the Orphanage Center require an average of $100000 ($50 per child x 150 children = $90000 + $ 10000 overheads).
Furthermore, we require funding for one-off worthy projects such as finishing of digging a well, extending the school, prayer mosque, library, that would benefit you in the hereafter. Therefore, we are in need of computers, beds, tables, and chairs.
