Support our current projects
Started during the first Covid-19 lockdown, The Aydin Foundation have continually provided free school meals to homes during the school holiday period for children who are currently on free meals at school. Predominantly schools in and around the Greater London area are targeted due to our physical reach.
For some children, a free school lunch is all they are having; being severely malnutrition not only affects concentration but can also be dangerous. We believe in supporting the local community and allow the young generation to prosper and as such we’ve partnered up with local food service suppliers who are supporting The Aydin Foundation provide meals for school children.
Schools in remote parts of Africa and Asia lack basic essential equipment. The Aydin Foundations goal is to allow the next generation to prosper. It is time to uplift the generation out of poverty and let them prosper. The Aydin Foundation will be delivering computers to schools with training to staff on how to effectively teach their students. The lifespan of the computers provided will be anywhere from 4-7 years with a cost of circa £500. The Aydin Foundation is the life blood of many schools already and we want to make sure we do not let them down. Computers will be of school grade specification and will be shipped from the UK, pre-configured and ready to go.
The gift of vision project will look to provide life changing eye care to those who require it most. Something as simple as providing reading glasses to life changing cataract surgery is the aim of the project. Cataract surgery in the western world is usually free of charge and changes lives almost instantaneously; however in places like Bangladesh, it is very much a luxury. Bangladesh is one of the highest disease burdened countries in the world for ocular morbidity, with tremendously low cataract surgery rates per million population per year. This project will take place in Spring 2019.
The clean water project is looking to provide access to remote desolate villages with clean drinking water. The idea is to promote safe drinking practises by a) giving access to clean water and b) to educate and teach on how to use it to avoid water borne disease and infections. The clean water project would be the starting building blocks for educating and teaching about good sanitation and hygiene, all which play a vital role in eradicating diseases. In 2019, The Aydin Foundation will be conducting its Asia clean water program in Sri Lanka, Pakistan & Bangladesh. This project will take place in Summer/Autumn 2019.
The Aydin Foundation will be focusing its clean water efforts in The Republic of Mali, West Africa. Farming is key in Mali, with four out of five relying on it to live despite the country having very little rain. Access to safe clean water is always of concern. Mali has many water borne diseases, such as diarrhoea. Childhood diarrhoea is the primary cause of death in children in Mali. The Aydin Foundation will be working with partners to ensure the clean water project is provided in a sustainable manner to ensure all its mission statement is met. This project will take place in Summer/Autumn 2019.
