It is a fundamental right of every child to be raised by parents, kin or community. Unfortunately, countless children are raised in institutions, which dooms them to a bleak future. When international adoption is appropriate, it must be carried out with transparency, ethically, and in the best interest of the child. A child is entitled to know his true identity and maintain his family ties, culture and religion.
The majority of U.S. adoption agencies are faith based. Many laws exist that promote a child’s right to be served by organizations affiliated with their faith. This allows religious matching between parent and child, thus ensuring continuity of tradition and identity. Until now, there was not an adoption agency to support Muslim children.
Our Charity Projects
Morocco’s orphanages receive only about 10% of their operating costs from the Moroccan Government. Orphanages rely on inadequate fundraising and donations to care for the children. Funding may only provide the most minimal needs of a child such as a bed and food. The objective of the BASICS Program help meet the additional living, nutrition and medical needs of children living in four orphanages in Morocco.
There are three-objective for this project. First is to build healthy social emotional interaction, fill in the void of family life on the children living at the orphanage and lessen the effect of institutionalization on them. Second is to encourage Moroccan youth/ Boy and Girl scouts to be involved in their society by caring for the children living in orphanages and serve as mentor to them. Third is to increase awareness in the Moroccan society and policy makers about the issue of abandonment and institutionalization of children.
In partnership with HMEMSA: Private tutoring or private schooling for a child living in an orphanage.
