Islamic Relief Worldwide in Nangarhar

One to One Orphan Support (OTO)

The one to one orphan sponsorship project is one of Islamic Relief's longest running projects, started in 2003.

  • The project is sponsored individually through personal support of 2200 sponsors who live in the western countries, mainly Australia, USA, UK and Turkey.
  • The project is mainly focused on financial support of the poorest and needy orphans who are not able to continue their education due to economic problems.  
  • The OTO project staff register each orphan accordingly to the criteria, approved by community and religious elders and verified by the IR team and creates a bank account for the registered orphan to receive the allocated money.  
  • Currently the total number of OTO sponsored is 2134 orphans in four provinces (Kabul, Mazar, Nangarhar and Bamyan)

SEHAT (Supporting Education Through Health Assistance and Treatment)

The SEHAT project is in line with Islamic Relief's Strategy (2009-11) Aim No. 5 “Children’s wellbeing is placed at the centre of our actions with focus on providing support so that vulnerable children can grow up in a healthy, caring and supportive environment." 

The SEHAT project supports those orphans who are already registered in the OTO project in terms of health services in four provinces namely Kabul, Mazar, Bamyan and Mazar.
