This school year, give an orphan what they need to succeed

It’s a familiar story for many parents at the start of the new school year. Buying a new uniform, making sure the shoes are polished and running through the logistics of the school run for that all-important first day.

It might seem stressful but our children are lucky to have access to a good education, and that we are there to worry about them and look after them.

For many orphaned children, having access to education is a struggle and being prepared for a new school year is an impossibility.

Many children like Ramatu have had to grow up fast since losing their parents, their priorities change from doing homework to looking after their remaining family. Your help gives them the perseverance to achieve success in their lives.

At Orphans in Need, we feel that education is a right – not a privilege. We want our orphaned children to become the architects, designers, and innovative thinkers of tomorrow.

Join us in giving these children the equipment they need that we take for granted. Through our Global Orphan Care programme, £25 can provide books, uniforms, stationery and a school bag to put it all in.

Please, act now and give these young lives the best start to the new school year.

Their future is in your hands.

This is Daddy Mammy Coker

As part of our visit to Sierra Leone we spoke to many children in the hope of finding out more about the lives of orphans in Freetown. We asked the usual questions about their favourite subjects, their hobbies and what they want to be when they grow up.

This is Yusupha

Yusupha is the mother of 4 children. Yusupha’s husband passed away in 2015 from a stroke after this, she became a widow and her children became orphans. Because there was now no sole breadwinner in the family, Yusupha struggled to provide food. Her daily income only carried the family through a day or two at most.

Providing a safer future for Widows and Orphans in need

To make it easier for you to donate we provide the option for one-off £30 donations or monthly recurring £30 donations that allow us to better plan for providing future support. Donors can also provide a one-off donation of £360 (less than a £1 a day) that will ensure a family in need is given food parcel support for an entire year (12 months).
