Continuous Charity – Forgotten Women

Give and let it live on!

Sadaqah Jariyah means ongoing charity, it is the one of the best forms of charity because the charity will continue for years to come, the three strands of projects we have where charity will keep multiplying is Wells of Dignity, Transforming Lives and Homes for Life.

1. WELLS OF DIGNITY: Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen

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.

The benefits:
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- Unconditional water is provided to all communities for generations to come

Wells of dignity is currently being implemented in Pakistan, Yemen and Afghanistan with the aim of giving a quality of life and safety which every woman deserves.

Pakistan Balochistan £150, Sindh £250 | Yemen £20,000  | Afghanistan £700


2. TRANSFORMING LIVES: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan

Setting women up in businesses instead of giving handouts, we believe that in investing in the women is the fastest way to eradicate poverty because she will invest in her own family and communities around her. We take your donation and with a one-off donation we can help those in poverty to stand on their own feet and start earning immediately where she can afford to pay for her own food, shelter, children’s education and basic healthcare and run a household.

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 transforming 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]

A one off donation of £1000, which will help a woman escape the poverty trap for good and not be dependent on handouts, she will generate an instant income.


3. Homes for Life: Pakistan

The floods hit Pakistan 9 months ago, 33 million people were displaced, most of whom were women and children. The waters affected an area the size of Britain. The Government has appealed for international help because they can’t cope and are asking charities like us to help the people. There is a need to protect these vulnerable women who are living in the open with safe and secure housing. A home for life costs just £700, made of brick and cement that will last many years. 

Give and multiply your reward!
