masjid and orphanage school

£3,765 of £44,000 goal

Raised by 113 people in 9 months
we are raising money for the many orphans in the gambia whose dad or both parents have died, and have no support.

the funds will be used to build a masjid and a dorms above that will hold 100 orphan boys. 

we have been donated land for this boys school and would like to start building as soon as possible. the building can be done between 6- 10 months.

this money will build a 20m*10m masjid with dorms space above.
-a wudhu area
-water tower and well for unlimited free water
-solar panels to provide electric when the electric cuts out in the country daily for few hours.
-50 bunk beds
-build, materials, tiling, painting, finishing, roof, foundation
-6k will be used to build a small watchman house for the caretaker of the place.
£2k will be used to plant 36 trees which will produce money long term, also to support the orphans whilst they are in the school and after when they leave and become men.
- also £3k of the money will build a small shop and security office at the entrance of the compound. It will sell all halal household needs of the community, but this income will maintain the school forever we hope. We hope that the shop will provide income so we never have to ask for donations again.

if the shop can make just £400pcm
we will be able to spend:
 £150 on food (rice,porridge, meats, fish, eggs, etc)
£150 on staff wages (3 staff - teacher/cook/ security)
£ 100 medical and clothing and miscellaneous

This money will look after 100 orphans inshallah; and as we know the hadith: 
Sahl ibn Sa’d reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this,” and he held his two fingers together to illustrate.
