Orphan Sponsorship Fund - Save a Life, Sponsor orphans

Of the many members of society, orphans are among the most vulnerable.

In Islam an Orphan is defined as a child who has lost his father or both of his parents. This is particularly true in countries where there is little social support and where services are largely inadequate. The noble values which Islam has laid out can be summarily understood by looking at the importance the religion has given to looking after orphans.

Transforming a life costs us little but ensures us a place in Paradise inshaAllah. It is a means of continuous charity as the donor receives rewards for all the good that the sponsored child does. We need your help, to allow vulnerable orphan children in the Gambia to have a brighter tomorrow.

Your sponsorship will provide the following:

School Fees & Uniform
Food provided for the whole family
Shelter & Care

The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:

"The one who cares for an Orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this,"
and he held his two fingers together to illustrate.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows SPOT Project to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to SPOT Project we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like SPOT Project to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that SPOT Project will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When SPOT Project receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Have a Question about sponsoring a child?

Frequently Asked Questions

To sponsor an orphan at SPOT Project will cost £600 a year (£50 a month). That’s approximately £1.64 a day. Although this does not seem very much, each penny of your sponsorship goes a long way to helping with the cost of daily living.

Through your sponsorship they receive:

  • Regular medical care
  • Learning resources. e.g. books, stationary etc.
  • Season-appropriate clothing
  • Regular healthy and nutritious meals
  • Sanitary products

SPOT Project’s aim is to, ultimately, provide long-term support for our children, therefore, the sponsorship of an individual will last until they are empowered enough to become independent and self-sufficient. You have the option to sponsor a child on a yearly rolling basis or sponsor an orphan over an extended period of time.

Additionally, sponsoring an orphan with SPOT and how long this will last depends on each child’s circumstances, how old they are and what needs will have to be met to ensure that they flourish.

Families of the orphans may feel as though they have the ability to provide for them and their needs, at which point the family’s ability to do this will be looked into and if it is decided that they can provide adequately for the orphan then sponsorship may no longer be appropriate. Situations like these will have to be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Apart from that great feeling you get when you know you are helping to transform and empower a child. Your donations will cover more than one orphan and we provide an annual report so you can see the impact of your donations. There will also be an opportunity for long term donors to visit the beneficiaries in the Gambia, West Africa.

Sponsoring a child with us means that you are ensuring the wellbeing of these children on a long-term basis, every day, all year round.

We are dedicated to the care of these orphans and, as such, each child is assigned a key worker as well as a mentor. This mentor observes and documents their learning experience so that the Academy can provide a service to these children which is specific to each child. In other words, we are responsive to each individual child and appreciate and celebrate their individuality.

With that being said, each member of staff puts in huge effort to ensure each child feels special, wanted and loved. It’s never just about money, but also how this sponsorship makes the child feel and so this is a process that will provide them with a sense of pride and encouragement to know that someone, somewhere, despite what they have been through, cares enough to support them.
