Make your Qurbani donation go further by investing in Qurbani+ for £149 in Niger.
At Islamic Relief, we want to make your Qurbani have a lasting impact on those most in need.
Thanks to our new programme, Qurbani+, you can not only provide halal Qurbani to people in need on the blessed days of Eid al-Adha, but also offer local families a source of income!
Through our Islamic microfinance livelihood programme in Niger, we are supporting widows and orphaned families so they can live a dignified life.
This will provide critical support for some of the millions of people in Niger living in poverty, on less than £1.40 a day.
Your Qurbani+ can help mothers in need like Fatima.
For every £149 Qurbani+ donation you make, you fulfil one Niger Qurbani AND you support an important, poverty-breaking initiative.
Qurbani+ (Plus) is an initiative that seeks to increase the income of families by partnering with them in an Islamic microfinance livelihood project connected to Eid al-Adha.
We support the head of a household caring for orphaned children – usually a mother or grandparent.
We provide them with three animals up to six months before the Qurbani season. We buy the animals and give them to the family to look after them.
We also train the families in animal fattening and sustainable fodder cultivation, allowing the family to rear the animals in the best way possible.
What’s more, all animals are sourced locally so other people in the community also benefit from this initial purchase.
As Qurbani season approaches, the fattened animals are sold at market prices to our Qurbani Programme. This generates a profit.
This profit is then shared between Islamic Relief and the families at a predefined and agreed upon ratio.
This profit provides the family with enough money to meet their household needs and cover other costs.
Some families choose to reinvest their money into other initiatives.
Islamic Relief also uses its share of the profit to reinvest into other income-generating activities so lots of other people can benefit too.
As Eid al-Adha arrives, all the fattened animals are then made part of the Qurbani distribution.
This means we provide the best quality meat possible for vulnerable people in need.
So, through Qurbani+, not only does the best quality Qurbani meat reach the most vulnerable people on Eid, but your donation is also helping widows and orphaned families break the cycle of poverty.
By donating to this programme now, you’ll be giving a Niger Qurbani for this year AND supporting these livelihood efforts for next year’s Eid al-Adha. So, it’s a win-win for locals in need!
