A Novel Approach

Our approach seeks to intervene in a vital and decisive aspect of their problem; funding. To that end, Amãna Bank has created the OrphanCare Trust. The Trust will make periodic deposits into orphans’ accounts until they reach the age of 18, at which point the funds will become accessible. Amãna Bank will provide the seed capital for the Trust and will open the fund for contributions from donors inspired by this cause.

Two foundational principles define the very essence and identity of the Trust.

  • Every rupee donated to the Orphan Care Trust will be directly allocated for orphan accounts.
  • Amãna Bank will bear all operating and administrative costs of the Trust.


Orphan Enrolment

  • Confirmation of orphan status (at least one parent deceased; verification of orphan status will be made in consultation with relevant agencies).
  • Guided by Article 2 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, all enrolment will be irrespective of the child’s or their parent’s or legal guardian’s race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national, ethnic or social origin, property, disability, birth or other status.
  • Enrolees will be 12 years or younger as of date of enrolment (the Trustees may decide to adjust the age of entry depending on the strength of the fund).
