Most of these children are from deprived backgrounds where the day to day struggle includes the shortage of food, clean water, sanitation, and access to education. Almost 26% of all youth aged between 5 and 14 years are forced to forego education due to extreme poverty. We hope to support schools in the rural areas and the children who live in the slums of Kibera. Children who attend school are less likely to face the dangers and offers from gangs who are ready to assimilate them into gangs and criminality and worse traffic them into sexually abusive and punishing work.   Many children work on plantations in ‘back-breaking’ work while others work in back street alleys in dangerous and horrendous condition’s. Children who cannot find work are often left with only the option to beg leaving them prey for traffickers.     Schools provide a safe place for children to grow and learn. They are places where children can seek help, advice, and be inspired. Muslim Charity  Inspired by faith, devoted to humanity. Motivated by our faith, Muslim Charity seeks a world of hope, tolerance and social justice where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity.  For almost two decades, we have been delivering aid and development programmes to transform the lives of the world’s most vulnerable communities.  We serve the poor and impoverished to further establish equality, opportunity, and hope. This is only possible through the collective work of our volunteers and donors who sacrifice their time, energy and money to send our collective love around the world.
