Blesses was set up in 2011 with the aim of contributing to the journey of building a fairer world free from poverty. This we will do through innovative sustainable solutions. We have taken our first steps on this journey during 2016, through our projects for Qurbani, Ramadan and Winter Emergencies. We are now engaged in laying the building blocks of our infrastructure so that we can experience a period of growth, expanding our programmes to deliver more sustainable solutions to those in need around the world. Our initial priority is to focus on programmes for children, their families and communities across a number of different thematic areas.
