The Oxford Homeless Project

The  Oxford Homeless Project is a voluntary run Muslim community project with the aim of serving the homeless in Oxford.  St. Francis School parent, Shabnam Sabir started the initiative after giving out food to the city's homeless during Ramadam, the month of fasting observed by all Muslims.  Mrs Sabir realised she could be doing more for those sleeping rough in the city and set up the charity which now provides a Monday lunch every fortnight at the Asian Cultural Centre off Manzil Way.  Four years on, the Oxford Homeless Project now feeds around 50 homeless people in Oxford as well as provide other important items such as clothing, sleeping  bags and tents.

 

 

 

 

We were delighted to have the opportunity to take a group of children along to project's recent 4-year birthday celebration where they sang songs and helped decorate tables.  We are passionate about ensuring our children have every opportunity to get involved with community volunteering and they gained so much from this valuable experience. This project demonstrates that given the opportunity to give to others we are able to recognise that whatever our situation, we are all just the same.  It is all about changing perceptions and allowing our children to be active and socially responsible citizens.
