This year we’ve decided we want to challenge YOU, our volunteers, in a different but highly rewarding way. We wanted to give you a lifetime challenge on a personal one to one basis in helping orphans worldwide get the help they need and deserve. And your generosity can earn you the experience of a lifetime – the opportunity to meet with your sponsored orphan.

Challenge27 sets you a monthly challenge, to raise £27 a month or 89p a day, so that you can provide your sponsored orphan with food, medical assistance and an education.

So go on – challenge27, raise and make a change!

Help Change an Orphans Life

For those children in the developing world who lose a parent – the struggle of trying to survive can become unbearable. These children don’t have enough to eat, no access to an education, no security, no future.

But together we can put a STOP to this - will you be that helping hand that has the power to make a change?

At Muslim Hands, orphan care has been at the heart of our work for over twenty years. Not only do we provide the essentials our orphans need in their day to day lives, but we also invest in their futures. We are currently providing over 12,000 orphans in 30 countries with an education and our custom built schools are setting standards all over the world.

How your donations are making a difference::

1. Muslim Hands sponsors over 12,000 orphans in more than 20 countries
2. Our sponsorship programmes cover all aspects of a child’s wellbeing from education, healthcare to emotional support.
3. We support 130 schools in over 14 countries
4. We employ almost 1300 teachers worldwide

With your support we can transform the lives of orphans across the world – we know you can Challenge27.

Q. How long does Challenge27 last?

A. Challenge27 is a year-long challenge aimed at raising £324 pounds to sponsor an orphan for a year. Of course, you can continue supporting your orphan after the year is up!

Q. How often will new activities take place?

A. Activities will take place on a monthly basis. We advise all participants to check the website on the first week of every month to find out what their exciting new task is.

Q. How old do I need to be to take part?

A. Because of the commitment level of this campaign we advise that volunteers should 16 and above to take part in the challenge.

Q. What do I do with the money I raise on a monthly basis?

A. We are asking all participants to set up a JustGiving page with the link we have provided. This will be a great way to monitor how much you have raised and a simpler way for the money to be donated to Muslim Hands.

Q. What happens if I raise more than £27 per month?

A. If you raise more than £27 per month this will help you reach your target of £324 sooner. If you raise over the £324 target, additional funds may go towards helping other orphans that desperately need support.

Q. What if I am not able to do the task set on a particular month?

A. If you are unable to complete a particular task, please refer to your Fundraising Guide which you receive when you register. This will contain other suggested activities that you can do in place of the one that has been selected.

Q. Who will be my Muslim Hands point of contact throughout the duration of this campaign?

A. Your Muslim Hands point of contact will be Sahirah Javaid - if you have any questions or queries please email her on



If you have any questions or would like further information please contact us.

We will aim to reply within 2 working days, but it can take a little longer during busy times.
