Help us Build an Academy to House and Educate Orphans


Our recent trip to Mali and Ethiopia really opened our eyes to the vast number of orphans there. That is why we are launching this campaign. You will be able to not only select a perk to sponsor an orphan right now for an entire year, but you will also be able to make a donation to help us build our Pious Projects House Academy. We do not want to use the word Orphanage, but this house will accommodate hundreds of orphans and give them the food, shelter, healthcare, and education they need to be able to grow and make a change in society. We want to take a unique approach and offer these orphans the best possible education that is available. This Academy will comprise the best teachers in the country along with a strong curriculum. We even have plans to include a library, science lab, and computer lab. 



We have already secured 5 acres of land for this project in the region of Sikasso, Mali. If we are able to reach our goal, Insha'Allah, we will build a two-story school and living quarters to accommodate 500 orphans and about 150 of them will be able to live on campus. We will offer an affordable Orphan Sponsorship and various means of direct communication with your sponsored orphan, so you can watch them grow and see the impact your support has had on them.


About our Orphan Sponsorship Program: 
The Orphan Sponsorship Program (OSP) supports the food, shelter, education, and healthcare needs of orphans and vulnerable children through the support of our generous donors. Monthly donations are distributed to families in need to this end. Donations are zakat eligible and there is no limit on the number of children a donor can sponsor. All donations go towards orphan support as Pious Projects does not take overhead for administrative costs. We appreciate your support to help those most in need.
All funds donated to this campaign will go towards building an orphanage, unless otherwise specified by selecting a perk.

Invest now and plant the seeds of the future. We will nurture them and together, we will watch this develop and grow into something truly beautiful. With your help, we will prepare these children to be the future leaders of their country.
