> Sponsor an Orphan - this project is Zakat applicable

The world can be a terrifying place with broken systems, global pandemics, conflicts and natural disasters. Now imagine what that would be like through the eyes of an orphaned or vulnerable child? Terrifying.

Children living in poverty often sacrifice education first. They have limited access to essentials such as healthcare, clean water, and a safe, loving environment. What do they feel? Despair.

We all understand that every single child is special and unique, and it is their human right to grow up in a safe, nurturing environment. But how can YOU help?

> How YOU and READ Foundation are helping

READ Foundation has been at the forefront of taking care of orphans for years. However, we want to make them independent with our support. Together, we help them bloom so they can look forward to a better tomorrow.

By sponsoring a child today, YOU are empowering future generations. YOU are building a brighter future.

Our journey began in Kashmir, Pakistan, which is now one of READ Foundation’s longest running programs.

An orphan is a child without a father or both parents, as one parent would be a source of provision and protection for a child.

We support over 11,000 orphans around the world.


  • School fees– the programme relieves families from the burden of paying for schooling so that children can go on to enjoy learning, making friends and being themselves
  • Textbooks and stationery – A backpack is provided, containing a notebook, pens, pencils, colouring pens, an eraser, a pencil sharpener, a geometry set, and textbooks
  • School uniforms – The child is given a full uniform, including a jumper, two shirts, a pair of trousers and two pairs of sturdy shoes for the school year
  • Living costs –The child’s guardian is given a monthly allowance to help with the cost of shelter, food, clean water or any need that arises.
