For Kids’ Sake (FKS) is an international fundraising project that helps children, schools and orphanages in Bangladesh. Through our assistance, thousands of lives are transformed in one of the poorest countries in the world. FKS also strives to create financial sustainability by supporting local cottage industries and provides project managers with on-site leadership training. A worldwide network of FKS volunteers raises money via various creative events along with donations and grants.
For Kids’ Sake exists because of a promise.
The For Kids’ Sake mission is to create a sustainable program that provides underprivileged children with quality education, good health, right livelihood and a safe environment.
In order to realize the greatest human potential, we must first meet certain basic necessities. It is the birthright of every human being to be guaranteed the opportunity to work for food, clothing, shelter, education and health care.
No one should suffer from lack of, or be denied these basic necessities due to illness, calamity, fate or greed. It is also the birthright of every human being to receive love and care, and to live in a clean environment which promotes growth and well-being without fear.
For Kids’ Sake (FKS) supports six facilities to provide food, clothing, shelter, education, healthcare and a safe environment for approximately 550 orphans. In addition, our sites host fully registered schools and offer Kindergarten through College level education to more than 4,000 children from surrounding villages. In total, FKS supports, educates and empowers 4,000 children each month.
Along with donations, FKS facilities are financially supported by local, income-generating projects that include: aquaculture, dairy farming, fruit and vegetable farming, irrigation services, ferryboat service and village market rentals. As well, these projects also provide vocational training for the children. Currently 130 Bangladeshis are employed by FKS facilities and projects, helping to stimulate the local economy.
As early as the 1940s, Sayed Dayemullah Huzur began founding orphanages and schools in Bangladesh. Having been an orphan himself, he dedicated his life to serving those in desperate need of hope and relief.
Before his passing in 1995, Sayed Dayemullah entrusted this essential work to his successor, Sheikh Din Muhammad Abdullah al-Dayemi. To keep the promise and support his predecessor’s work, Sheikh Din established “For Kids’ Sake.”
For Kids’ Sake has now grown to become an international fundraising program with branches in the United States, Germany, and Switzerland.
FKS service projects in Bangladesh are flourishing. Daily operations are managed by the Dayemi Foundation, which is the Bangladeshi government-approved NGO that administrates the service projects.
For Kids’ Sake is presented by Dayemi Tariqat, a United States based 501(c)3, not-for-profit, religious, educational and service organization. Founded by Sheikh Din Muhammad Abdullah al-Dayemi, Dayemi Tariqat is an intentional spiritual community based in Southern Illinois, with branches across the United States, Europe, Bangladesh and Japan.
