Heart Cry from Morogoro,
The Orphans Need your Help!
Nobody chooses to be orphaned, every
child deserves a chance for a decent living!
Dar-ul-Muslimeen Orphanage is
based on the premise that every child deserves the promise of a
future. Every child deserves to be provided with a safe environment,
adequate food, shelter, and health services, a sound education, and a
supportive family system. Yet for many children, these basic needs and
rights are denied or threatened due to poverty, disease, prejudice,
natural disaster, or political unrest.
Orphanage and Rehabilitation Centre came into existence and was
officially registered in October, 1995 after it began its
philanthropic work in June, 1995 by adopting 8 needy orphans of
In Aug 2000, we
acquired our own land for building a proper home for the orphans and
this was completed in Nov 2001.
Dar-ul-Muslimeen Orphanage and
Rehabilitation Centre is located in Morogoro, at Vibandani
Area, Plot Nos. 278, block Y. The Orphanage is currently running with
30 needy orphans aged 7 years onwards. All the children are provided

Our aim is to
provide the boys with a good secular education as well as to build a
strong religious, moral and spiritual foundation which will enable
them to be independent and free-thinking practicing Muslims.
Our distant future
plan includes securing more land and extending the existing facilities
to include a girls’ wing and a section for abandoned or orphaned newly
born babies - Insha Allah. A ‘Maalim’ from the Ahlul-Bait Centre is
currently in charge of all the children and he ensures an Islamic
environment at the orphanage.

A Nursery Class recently commenced with more than 30 children
aged 5 to 7 years. They are taught English, Mathematics, Writing
Skills and Basic Islamic Knowledge according to their ages. There has
been a tremendous response from the neighborhood in support of the
Nursery class. Additional classes would be a much needed progress in
the impoverished area.
A skilled and qualified Nursery teacher is presently working
with us. Six children from the vicinity receive free education and
this privileged goes to those children who are deprived,
single-parented and poor. A long list awaits...Fee per month is T.Sh

held at the orphanage are also attended by neighboring children.
Evening classes are held regularly for men and women to impart Islamic
knowledge and to learn the Quran.
A plan for having
morning classes for women whereby they can learn beneficial subjects
such as sewing, computer and English language. This will uplift their social and economic status in their community. These classes will be
held when the madrassah hall is not in use. The centre has a great
potential for promoting Islam as taught by Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w).
Food and clothing are
often distributed to the less fortunate in the neighborhood and Iftar
Programs are regularly held during the month of Ramadhan.
A detailed budget and
computerized accounts together with the children’s profile are
available on request. We invite you for a visit and with your valued
suggestions; there will always be room for improvement.
