Our Program

At the Ummahatul Momineen Women Orphanage, we’d like to create a more personal experience for both our children and their sponsors. We believe connection is what our kids need most, more than money, more than gifts. They need to know that someone cares.

Our children come from a multitude of backgrounds, some with at least one parent or other family member, some with no one outside the Orphanage gates. Those with surviving relatives often maintain some level of contact with their families. These bonds are encouraged by us, as we know how important a sense of family is to a child’s development. And so we’re looking for people who care. Supportive, champions to encourage and connect with our kids. These are the kinds of people we intend to involve in our child sponsorship program.

It doesn’t cost much to support a child in Bangladesh. Just $1 a day is all we need. This may not seem like much money to you, but as you read on hopefully you will be able to understand ‘why’ and ‘how’ we can do so much for so little.

A Lasting Commitment

If you are thinking of getting involved in our orphan child sponsorship program, we ask you to consider carefully the commitment you are willing to make. Our hope is: sponsors will become part of our children’s lives. They will not simply give money. They will write letters, send pictures, occasionally call, share family stories, build a bond that will enrich both your life and your sponsored child’s life. After so much abandonment, we are hopeful these bonds can become a vital force that helps guide our children into adulthood, perhaps surviving for a lifetime. For this reason, we ask all prospective sponsors to think carefully before getting involved. A small group of committed individuals is what we are looking for and we hope you’ll join us by becoming a mentor, friend and extended member of the Ummahatul Momineen Women Orphanage family.
