Access to basic education is a right that every child should enjoy. Educational reform is critical to promoting and sustaining the development of any community in the world. In India, Muslims have been the most educationally backward group. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has further worsened the already crumbling state of education for Muslim children, especially when they are left with a single or no parent to look after even the most basic of their needs. This is the case spanning across the country and involves other communities as well.
According to the United Nation’s policy brief on the pandemic’s impact on education; as many as 24 million children may drop out of school due to COVID-19 impact. As a counter measure to this unfortunate event, Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) India has launched this project to help support the Covid orphans. AMP aims to give MYR 57,000 (approx INR 10,00,000) to 100 children as part of this program. Each orphan will get MYR 565 (approx INR 10,000). AMP does extensive research and prepares a list of the orphans who are in the most dire conditions and supports them as part of this initiative.
Donations to this campaign will help support the education of the vulnerable Covid orphans in India! Start with just RM10. Together, we can make a positive difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters in India.
The Messenger of Allah said: “Whoever relieves a Muslim of a burden from the burdens of the world, Allah will relieve him of a burden from the burdens on the Day of Judgement. And whoever helps ease a difficulty in the world, Allah will grant him ease from a difficulty in the world and in the Hereafter. And whoever covers (the faults of) a Muslim, Allah will cover (his faults) for him in the world and the Hereafter. And Allah is engaged in helping the worshipper as long as the worshipper is engaged in helping his brother.” [Tirmidhi]
