Across the globe, a staggering 250 million children are lacking in basic literacy skills. Every child deserves a quality education. It’s the key to a brighter future, offering the chance to learn critical skills, grow in self-confidence and escape the brutal cycle of poverty. 

Children’s education play a crucial role in helping children build their own futures. 

Crucially, an education also has an impact on the generations to come, not only within a single family but to the wider community.

How Islamic Relief are supporting

Every child deserves an education and thankfully, through Islamic Relief’s orphan sponsorship programme, all sponsored orphans are provided access to an education. 

However, for those children that excel at school, there is no clear future pathway for them to realise their true potential due to limited higher education opportunities.

This is where we step in to help. 

Here at Islamic Relief, we strive to ensure that orphans in need are given the means to excel at school and then go on to higher education. Through our higher education scholarship fund, children are then able to shine brightly and fulfil their dreams.

From as little as £20 per month, you can help provide orphans with a university scholarship, so that they can attend university, gain a degree and then go onto a profession that enables them to break free from poverty.

Not only do these scholarships support young people through university and beyond, but the positive outcomes are far wider-reaching. Benefitting generation after generation within even a single family, they also bring blessings to the wider community. SubhanAllah!
