History

The concept of Dar Amanah Children's Village Foundation Incorporated evolved from the hearts and minds of the founders in the year 2002. The family have been pondering and reflecting that there are a large numbers of orphans in many parts of the world especially those oppressed Moslem children in Israel, Afghan, Africa and in our own country who are in need of our love and care. As a Moslem, they felt that they have a tremendous obligation toward these children to be living in such a situation but they didn't have adequate resources to address the children's emotional and social needs except that these children only have ALLAH (GOD) to rely on.

The family realized that they must do something in any way in helping the orphans especially the Moslem children. In several occasions during the giving of zakat which is equivalent to the 2.5% of the income of Moslems which is one of the pillars in Islam, they realized that there are many compassionate Moslem people wanting to help the Moslem orphans not mentioning their Christians friends and circles. They only need an assurance that their contributions would indeed benefit the children. Therefore, they feel that those of us who have been blessed with money, comfortable lives and happy families (Thanks be to GOD) have responsibility to feed, clothe and care for the young children, in the same manner they care for their own children.

They also gain further encouragement from the words of our beloved Prophet (Salalahu Asalam) (Sun 107:2) the Prophet said "I and the person who looks after orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like this" (putting his index and middle fingers together Salih Al Bukari-Vol 8 Hadith, no.34) With these feeling and encouragement from the words in Quran the family decided to buy a land in Silang, Cavite and build this village from their own efforts and money. With ALAH'S (GOD) help and mercy, they hope to have an opportunity to increase out effects to put their dreams, cause into a reality to help Filipino Moslem children of the future.
