Illiteracy amongst adults around the world is shockingly high. Estimates suggest there are around 750 million adults unable to read or write, and two thirds of these are women. Currently, estimates suggest 17 million children lack the minimum standard proficiency in reading and mathematics and one in five between the ages of six and seventeen are not attending school.
This problem is particularly rife in Central Asia and sub-Saharan Africa where lack of schools and teachers, alongside violence and poverty, is forcing children to grow up far too quickly.
Education not only helps provide stability to the child’s life but gives them the tools to better their future.
For many children around the world, a loving family home and good education remain nothing but a dream and they are forced to work long hours to fund their family. For millions of children, they do not even have a home and are forced to live on the street.
At Muslim Charity, we want every child to be able to enjoy being just that, a child. We want to protect those most vulnerable and give them a chance to thrive in a safe environment. With your help, we can provide shelter, education and a loving home and equip them with the skills and knowledge to better not only their lives but their communities too.
Working in some of the harshest environments you can imagine, we have been able to rescue thousands of children from the street where abuse and exploitation was all they have known.
We understand that every country and community is different and our projects are designed to synchronize with the society norms, culture and government policies.
A small donation from you each month helps us to continue our work and reach out to even communities, where we can help thousands more children.
