Why?

The Me and My Hijaab blog have once again teamed up with the UK’s 3rd largest charity, Islamic Relief, to raise money for their project: We Are Empowered- helping women in the world’s poorest countries break the cycle of poverty by providing them with the means and skills to start their own business.

I have dreams, you have dreams, everyone has dreams. Take a small moment to think about the dreams you had and what you’ve been able to do to achieve them. Now imagine thousands of women around the world who have similar dreams but are unable to fulfil them because they don’t even have the money to feed their families.

This isn’t about giving a hand-out, but a helping hand, in the form of a short term, interest free loan (micro-finance). Using micro finance, a woman is able to start her own business and acquire the skills she needs to become self-sufficient. But it doesn’t stop there. Once she repays the loan (98% of these loans have been paid back so far) it is ‘recycled’ and given to another woman, and another after that, empowering women, families, and communities around the world.

We want people to understand exactly what they are giving to- a truly special and unique project. We won’t ask you for money every month, as your donation will be used again and again. We want you to know that in helping us, you will be helping to empower a woman, so that she is no longer dependant.
