What We Do

Penny Appeal's way of doing charity is simple and has a massive impact. We make charitable giving affordable and rewardable, ensuring everyone can help the poor and needy by donating just a few pennies each day.

"We take small change and make a big difference with it."

All our projects are carefully constructed and designed to be accessible and effective. They are a blend of emergency support, short-term relief and longer-term sustainable interventions. This multi-focus approach means we can save lives immediately, improve situations in the coming days and weeks, and transform communities for years to come, always giving desperate people the support they need depending on their situation.


Zakat, a key pillar of faith and a spiritual duty incumbent upon Muslims who can afford it, is full of fruitful benefits. This is an obligation that offers the giver - and receiver – great blessings and immense reward. Zakat purifies one's wealth and is an opportunity to give to the less fortunate at least annually. Donate your Zakat through Penny Appeal, safe in the knowledge that it will be used where it is most needed. Be the reason for improved livelihoods. Be the reason for the beautiful smiles on the less fortunate.



Reliable access to safe, clean water means that drinking, cooking, washing, watering crops and animals and making wudu no longer pose a risk of illness. This allows those less fortunate a chance to break free from poverty and transform their lives for years to come. By providing access to clean, safe drinking water—as well as sanitation and hygiene education—you can promote educated and healthy societies



The aim of the Feed Our World programme involves both, short-term and long-term interventions. Providing meals helps relief the immediate hunger crises in the world, but ultimately, Penny Appeal's objective is to establish sustainable food projects that reduce the dependency of hunger struck countries on immediate food aid. Each year, Feed Our World provides millions of life-saving, nutritious meals to the poor and needy. These meals help combat hunger poverty in crisis-hit countries across Asia, Africa and the Middle East.



Many orphans fall prey to petty crime, child labour or human trafficking. The legacy of being orphaned can be poverty, crime and extreme trauma. But the legacy of being OrphanKind? That’s a legacy of a child overcoming the odds, being loved and cared for and building a better future for themselves and their communities. When you sponsor an orphan with OrphanKind, you will change a child’s life forever, and gain Sadaqah Jariyah – ongoing rewards – throughout your life and in the Hereafter.



We provide humanitarian assistance and relief in the context of disasters, conflict and other emergencies. When families are caught up in conflict, or cut-off by natural disasters, working quickly and efficiently to bring help to where it's most needed, when it is most needed. When you donate to our Global Emergencies Fund, you ensure that when disaster strikes, we can get to work immediately by providing water, food and shelter to survivors.


Education First

We believe that education is one of the most important factors which offer the youth a brighter future, and better chance to access a brighter and more successful future. Our Education First project also aims to ensure that our support of schools, individuals, and facilities promote the well-being of the learner, and encourages access to quality education for all. Your support ensures that the youth have a better chance of accessing a brighter, successful tomorrow.



Around the world, 285 million people are visually impaired. According to the World Health Organization, 90% of these people live in the developing world and it is estimated that 80% of visual impairments can be prevented, or even cured.

In many cases, just a small eye check can make a life-changing difference; without one, many people would go blind despite there being a treatment available for them.
