Shine a light on Gaza’s schools
"Read. Read in the name of thy Lord who created; [He] created the human being from blood clot. Read in the name of thy Lord who taught by the pen: [He] taught the human being what he did not know." (96:1-5).
£30 – provide a child with access to education.
Help Gaza’s children to reach their full potential, without the interruption of power cuts. Donate, and we’ll install solar panels which will power lights, computers, and other educational equipment.
Usamah ibn Zaid (RA) narrated: ''Allah’s Messenger used to put me on (one of) his thighs and put Al-Hasan ibn `Ali on his other thigh, and then embrace us and say, “O Allah! Please be merciful to them, as I am merciful to them.” (Al-Bukhari)
Support children who have endured a lifetime of war, blockade, and hardship, by helping them to secure an education and a brighter future, inshaAllah.
Half of Gaza’s children are prevented from reaching their potential. Help us to change this
For the last decade, Gaza’s schools have struggled with chronic power cuts, which have drastically compromised education. Schools operate double-shifts, but often only have 4-6 hours of electricity per day. As a result, the UN estimates that only half of school children are able to reach their potential.
Not only do children face unpredictable attacks, violence, food shortages, and overcrowding, but they can’t work to improve their futures while their schools lack electricity.
Help us to make schools the safe, reliable spaces that every child deserves, so that children in Palestine can build a better tomorrow.
Shine a light on Gaza’s future
With your help, we want to provide solar panels to 30 schools in vulnerable areas across Gaza. We’ll coordinate with the education authorities to select the schools that are struggling most with power outages, and we’ll tailor the energy to each school’s need.
For each school that we support, at least 1,000 children will benefit, and, with your help, we’ll install around 80 solar panels per school so that they are never vulnerable to cyclical power outages again.
In all, we want to help 31,560 people, by improving the learning and teaching experiences.
We’ve been changing lives in Palestine for 20 years. Our recent work includes building a desalination plant for 15,000 people at Al Aqsa University, supporting over 3,000 children through winter in Gaza, and helping to fight the critical medical crisis by providing 10,000 medicines. Last year, we also set up an education and welfare centre, ensuring 450 Palestinian students have the opportunity to access school.
Now is the time to support sustainable, green energy solutions to Gaza’s power shortages.
Give today, and help to build a brighter future, for Palestinian children, and for you, through the blessings of charity.
