A clear way out of poverty: the power of food

We feed today’s most neglected people – children in systemic poverty. 

Through schools and refugee infrastructures in developing countries we make sure children are never forced to choose between food and education again.

Children in the Slums of Bangladesh

Half of the world’s poorest people live in just 5 countries. One of them is Bangladesh.

Tall skyscrapers with 20-30 stories & luxury brands sit right next to a slum area with 5 people per room and 50 people per toilet.

We feed children in the slums of Dhaka, Chittagong and Cox’s Bazar with daily meals as they attend school.

Meals for Rohingya Refugee Children

Robbed of normal childhood, Rohingya children in Bangladesh live in a designated camp controlled by the army, and can only attend makeshift community schools inside the camp.

The camp only provides basic food, rice and lentils. We support Rohingya teachers and provide nutritious meals that facilitate healthy growth and learning, with balanced levels of protein, carbohydrates, fibre and other nutrients.

We have seen this affect their educational outcomes, and are hoping to welcome more refugees to the program.

Refugee Schools

Refugee parents are not allowed to work. Refugee children are not allowed to attend public schools.

We provide school meals in refugee community schools in Malaysia with 50% Rohingya students and 50% children from other refugee backgrounds: Yemeni, Syrian, Afghan, Somali and others.

COVID19 has put extra pressure on the community. With your help, we can continue educating refugee children and open more schools.

Supporting Girls Education

Girls in poverty are married young because parents cannot afford to feed them. We invite girls to our schools instead.

No need to marry someone just to get your 1-2 meals a day, come to our school, get fed AND educated for a better future.

We facilitate girls’ education in communities where girls tend to get less support than boys. We have two schools focused exclusively on girls’ education, and we have girls present in all other schools we support.

Orphaned Kids and School Meals

We prioritize orphans, children of single mothers and children of parents with disabilities for our programs.

We have fed and educated 242 orphans in our schools in 2020. We wish we could welcome everyone who needs it, and we are working to expand our operations.

School Meals for Hufadh of the Quran

So far in 2021, we have 13 boys and 15 girls who have memorized the entire Quran, Alhamdulillah.

We offer religious education in all of our schools, with 3 schools operating as madrassas, and one of them – exclusively as a girls’ madrassah.

School Meals All Year Round

We feed our students daily, school days or not.

Please, consider setting up a recurring donation. We rely on your continued support to see the children through to graduation.

Sustained trust and support from our donors means we can open more schools and promise more children a safe, continued education.
