Help build an orphanage
Since launching our first orphanage, Mera Apna Ghar (My Own Home) in Pakistan in 2012, we have opened a further five in Pakistan and The Gambia. Penny Appeal orphanages are now home to many orphan children.
We want to build more orphanages in Kashmir, Pakistan and The Gambia, in order to build brighter futures for vulnerable children.
You can donate just £100 per brick* and help us transform lives.
*Buying a brick is much more than simply providing a physical piece of an orphanage – it means contributing to the building blocks of a happy childhood and a brighter future.Your £100 donation per brick helps to fund the initial development costs of the orphanage build – buying the land and materials, paying the applicable taxes and wages for the construction workers – and also contributes towards the ongoing costs and liabilities – utilities supplies, staff wages and maintenance.
