There are more than 100 million orphans worldwide.
The conflicts have left millions of people displaced in the Ivory Coast, over half of them children, with many others fleeing to safety in nearby Liberia. Thousands have lost their homes and all of their possession in the violence.
Today Ivory Coast is in 168th place out of 186 countries and territories when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country. Infant and under-five mortality rates are among the highest in the world and violence against children
Approximately one in three children in Ivory Coast are forced to work in order to provide for themselves and their families. There are more than 5,000 children working in the cocoa plantations, of which less than 1% are paid. In urban areas, the “little maids” phenomenon is common: it refers to very young Ivorian girls who are exploited as domestic servants. Other sectors also employ a large number of children, particularly in woodworking and in the food and craft industries. Even worse, there are Ivorian children who risk their lives on a daily basis in the mines, where living conditions are even more precarious.
SMT vision is to transform the lives of these abandoned children. Our goal is to take these children in, care for them, cloth them educate them. Our goal is to provide these children with a clean, safe, and nurturing environment. To assist the needy children within Ivory Coast to have access to basic shelter as well as advocating for other basic needs.

The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said ” the poor will enter the Paradise before the rich. ” After a pause, he added, ” O Aisha, never turn a needy person away from your door. Give him something, though it may be only a piece of date. Respect the poor and love them in spite of their poverty. If you bring the poor and needy close to you, Allah will bring you closer to himself.”
