We’re On a Mission
Our mission is to overcome poverty and injustice for vulnerable children everywhere.
We work together with children, their families, and communities to create happy, healthy and secure childhoods, and empowered futures. We do this by delivering programs to ensure all children:
- are well cared for and protected from harm; and
- have the tools they need to create lasting, positive change in their own lives and communities.
Our Islamic teachings command us to prioritise the welfare of every orphan and vulnerable child – GIM Foundation was created as our heartfelt response to this directive.
Globally, there are a growing number of orphans and vulnerable children without access to proper care, a basic family structure, a proper upbringing or an education; reducing their chances of contributing positively to the world. GIM Foundation aims to address the needs of vulnerable children and orphans by ensuring the rights of every child is met through a holistic, community-led response. We know that when children are equipped with the right tools, it has a life-changing ripple effect on their families and their communities. We work to develop long-term, sustainable solutions to empower vulnerable children and communities to build brighter futures for themselves.
Together, we can recover childhoods and build a better tomorrow.
In everything we do through the GIM Foundation, we believe we’re not only accountable to you, our donors, but to our beneficiaries, and to Allah (SWT). Every single dollar which is donated, fundraised or spent, is done so wisely and always with the goal of making the most impact, in the most sustainable way. We keep our operating costs to a minimum so that every possible cent can be used towards helping us make a difference!
As a registered and fully-accredited Australian charity through ACNC, our financial statements are always accessible so you can see how your donation is being spent. Our projects and aid initiatives are created with the participation and input of each community we work with; and we document their success and results in detail, sharing this with our supporters and donors through our website, social media, and WhatsApp. We welcome any and all questions about what we do and how we do it – just get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
