Give orphaned children the education they deserve

A right to an equal playing field. What does this mean for children after loss?

Did You Know?

Did you know? Many children we met across Iraq were suffering most with their lack of access to comprehensive education! Sadly, local schools were not providing the necessary support. Class sizes were sometimes 60 students and the nearest school could be miles away. Travel costs were so expensive, mothers often borrowed in order to cover these expenses.

Lack Of Access

Many children across Iraq are suffering with their lack of access to education! Sadly, local schools are often not equipped to providing the necessary support. Class sizes of children our teams met were sometimes 60 students and for others, the nearest school could be miles away. Travel costs were so expensive, mothers often borrowed in order to cover travel expenses alone.

To exasperate the crisis even further, once at school, the school day was often cut short due to the same building being used for another set of classes. One child described that her wish was it would one day reach her turn to be chosen to read in class. She explained the size of the class was so large there was never enough time to cover everyone.

For mothers, the only solution to ensure children do not fall behind is to seek extra tuition. Yet another extortionate expense. These challenges are where people like you step in.

A Child Without Education Is Like A Bird Without Wings

Covid Pandemic

Through Al-Ayn, orphaned children are given the opportunity to achieve their potential. They are encouraged to stay in school and supported to do so. Every child of school age is given free school uniforms, school bags, and stationary. Children who are struggling in particular subjects are offered free tuition via volunteer teachers and others who are doing well are encouraged to maintain their progress through financial incentives.

During the pandemic, education suffered even further with the technology gap being one of many new challenges. That is why we need your support more than ever. If you believe like we do in the importance of a level playing field for all children, in spite of their loss and poverty, do help us continue to provide these services today.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation (UK) to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation (UK) we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

I want to Gift Aid all donations made to Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation today, and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past 4 years. Please also apply Gift Aid to donations placed in all the Sadaqa Boxes I have returned to Al-Ayn today, in the last four years, and to any of my returned boxes in the future. I confirm that donations placed in these boxes are my own, and that I will inform Al-Ayn if this is not the case for any boxes registered against my name. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I understand that Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation (UK) receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we’re entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
