Frequently Asked Question's
How much of my donation will reach the school?
We pride ourselves on transparency and we ensure that your money goes towards the project you intended – we know that we are accountable to you, our beneficiaries and ultimately Allah (SWT). For Over 20 Amazing Years, we at FDF are proud to have a 100% Zakat policy! Every single rupee of your Zakat donation will go directly to those who need it – 100% of the time, giving you 100% of the reward.
How is my donation money spent?
The programme aims to meet the needs of our special students by providing basic necessities to improve their health and nutrition, wellbeing, and additionally support them through their education and social development.
Can I visit the school?
On certain occasions, supervised visits may be possible following prior arrangements and agreement with the school. Please note that visits cannot be made directly to the student’s home in line with our Child Protection Policy, so the meeting will be held at our offices/location.
Can I send extra monetary gifts?
FDF accepts additional monetary gifts on top of monthly sponsorship, but only if they are given the school and to a specific child as this causes division amongst children. Furthermore, there are many children we are currently unable to sponsor and extra donations could be used to fund projects which support them. If you would like to make an extra donation to support the school, we encourage you to give towards our Kafalat fund, supporting projects in which a wider community of children in need benefit. However, in exceptional cases of need – for example, in cases of seriously illness and needs treatment or a problem arises with their housing – FDF will accept direct monetary gifts specifically to meet these needs.
Can I send packages directly to the school?
We happily accept packages from donors but prefer a monetary donation. If you would like to support children in need with extra gifts, we encourage you to give a monetary donation to our children fund, supporting projects in which a wider community of children in need benefit.
