Education for orphans & impoverished children


Are you blessed and want to make a difference?

Here’s your opportunity to make a huge impact in the lives of others and receive more blessings and rewards in return.

Please join us in uplifting the poor and orphaned kids in Baraawe, Somalia.

After more than three decades of conflicts, generations of Somali children have lost access to formal education and other basic necessities of a stable childhood.

Increasingly isolated towns with little to no infrastructure need programs that provide free education for the orphaned and underprivileged, to help ensure a better future for the youth of tomorrow. 

The Omar Shegow foundation is planning to give hope to those kids who have no other way of getting an education or help them break through the cycle of poverty. 

We have donated our grandfather Omar Shegow's house in Baraawe, Somalia to that community where we plan to convert into a tuition free primary school so that the underprivileged and marginalized kids can receive free primary education.

Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) said “When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things:

Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him

You can help sponsor a child, buy school supplies or build classrooms and a safe learning environment for these children. 

Take advantage of these blessed days by supporting this Sadaqah Jariyah. 

We appreciate your contribution and please
share with your network.


‘The Prophet (saw) said, “The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this” and he (saw) held his two fingers together to illustrate’. [Bukhari]


May you be rewarded for your generosity.
