About

Who are we?

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 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.

Vision

To empower marginalised communities to stand on their own feet with dignity, so that together we can build a new world of peace, harmony and prosperity.

Mission

To enhance the quality of the lives of people suffering from acute poverty through the provision of structured sustainable programmes, particularly for vulnerable children and women.

Values

Blesses is built on the values of EICE; Empowerment, Integrity, Compassion, and Equality. We strive to imbue these core values across all aspects of our work. From the programmes we implement, to the causes we champion, the actions of our staff and even functioning of our offices. We hold these values to be crucial in maintaining the spirit of the organisation as it has been envisaged by the founders. We encourage all employees and stakeholders to be mindful of these values and openly discuss them as they relate to the work we do.

EMPOWERMENT

We believe that the most beneficial and most sustainable way to fight poverty is to empower those affected by it. This is reflected in our commitment to sustainable development projects.

EQUALITY

We believe in the equality of all human beings, and do not discriminate on gender, race, nationality, religion, age, disability, or political beliefs.

COMPASSION

By endeavouring to understand the emotions, needs and situations of different people Blesses is able to have a greater impact on the lives of the people that we work with.

INTEGRITY

By maintaining a conscious awareness of our integrity as individuals and as an organisation, we are able to perpetuate a strong sense of moral principles and ethics in the work that we do.
