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 Story

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.

Our Values

We are driven by our Islamic values of:

Compassion

Equality

Dignity

Collaboration

Integrity

We live out these values through our commitment to:
Rescuing children in times of crisis

Rescuing children in times of crisis

Children and women are especially vulnerable during humanitarian crises. It is estimated that more than 800 million children globally live in fragile and conflict-affected areas where their rights are often neglected and their childhoods compromised by violence, exploitation and slavery. In these situations, we put the protection of children and their families at the centre of our relief work.

Empowering children, families and communities

Empowering children, families and communities

Every child needs a loving and nurturing environment to learn and grow, However, life’s challenges might prevent many families from providing the care and protection their children need. We work with vulnerable families by providing them with the resources they need to overcome their hardships. Often, this means providing training and equipping parents with the skills they require to earn an income and create a stable home. With strong families, children and young people can receive the care and support they need to flourish.

Protecting children’s rights through advocacy

Protecting children’s rights through advocacy

We stand up for children and help educate communities about children’s rights. We encourage children to actively participate in the decision-making processes that impact their lives and speak up for themselves.
