Give and let it live on!
Sadaqah Jariyah means ongoing charity, it is the one of the best forms of charity for Muslims because the charity will continue for years to come, the two strands of projects we have where charity will keep multiplying is Wells of Dignity and Transforming Lives.
WELLS OF DIGNITY:
Wells of Dignity is designed to give women access to clean water in a safe and sound manner free from threats and attacks of sexual violence. Females are the primary water bearers in most countries, at least 2.1 billion people around the world face challenges obtaining water every day. In some countries women and young girls walk up to 3 hours through the night in remote areas in order to queue for water as early as 1am, ready for morning use. On this journey they face many dangers, the most horrific being sexual attacks, abduction and rape. In some cases, conditions are put on the access to water.
1- Stops life threatening fatalities associated with drinking dirty water
2- Reduces the risk of women and girls being sexually attacked
3- Reduces the risk of girls being kidnapped and sold into the sex trade
4- Empowers women by making free time available to pursue livelihood
5- Gives girls access to an education rather than spending hours fetching water
6- Gives women & girls freedom of safe movement
7- Enables communities to yield better crops
8- Unconditional water is provided to all communities for generations to come
Wells of dignity is currently being implemented in Malawi, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Yemen and Syria with the aim of giving a quality of life and safety which every woman deserves.
Wells in Yemen can vary between £3500 and £12,000. At the lower end of the price are the hand dug wells. These can only be provided where the water level is very high and going down 50 to 80 feet by hand on soft soil which is easily managed. However, in many parts of Yemen, water levels are very low and drilling rigs are required to reach at 800 metres to 100 metres deep. Hence the price is higher. In Syria, the ground is hard and special drilling rigs are required to penetrate the ground. Also, access to Idlib and Azaz for the drilling rigs can be quite challenging which reflects on the price. Regardless the need is great, Yemen is in famine mode (no food or water) and Syria is going through hidden hunger and thirst. Each well will last for generations to come, give and let it live on.
Malawi £7,000 | Pakistan £650 | Yemen £12,000 | Syria £20,000 | Bangladesh £350
Setting women up in businesses who are in severe poverty. Instead of giving handouts to the poor, we believe in investing in the poor by providing a means of earning an income. This way, we take your donation and with a one-off setup we can help those in poverty to stand on their own feet and start earning immediately where they can afford to pay for their own food, shelter, children’s education and basic healthcare.
What this means for you is that the donation that you give will multiply for many years to come. It will also be a means of transferring what you give to the next generation as the businesses we provide can grow and thrive tremendously.
“A grain of corn which grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains” [The Holy Qur’an Chapter 2 Verse 261]
The cost of setting up a woman is between £500 to £1000, but you can donate whatever you like and it will goes towards the overall cause, both projects are the best form of charity, benefitting you, the end user and whole communities.
Give and multiply your reward!
