Project Description: There are millions of orphans around the world; they are the most

vulnerable sector of society. They do not have the same opportunities as other children. They are often forced into child labour /prostitution/child soldier in order to survive and thus miss out a normal childhood. Needy orphans are usually deprived of food, clothing, sufficient healthcare and a good education. Perhaps the greatest tragedy is that they are deprived of schooling and education. Given the opportunity of going to school, these orphans could develop practical skills, which would enable their communities to break out of the cycle of poverty. In order to improve the situation of the orphans, Islamic Relief is implementing the One to One Sponsorship project by which it provides monthly 26 EURO to each of the orphan to meet their basic needs.
