Orphan Home Builds

Arwa's Home

We commenced orphan home builds in Ramadhan 2012, having approached by a donor who wished to spend zakah money on something other than food distribution. We found a poor orphan girl, who had been evicted from her paternal family home.

We decided to build a shelter for her and her orphan siblings who were being looked after by their Mother. The picture to the far right shows the pre-built foundation of the orphan home and the picture on the right was taken after the home was finished.


In 2013, we received news of a poverty stricken widow who lived with four children near to one of our schools in Bumbwini. She was liviing in dire conditions in a hut. We decided to help this family and a build a home for them.

We completed this project in Ramadhan 2013. It was welcome news to family who have never had a solid roof over their heads. The pictures below shows the transformation from the orphan's home built from straw and mud to a solid concrete 3 bedroom structure.
