I confirmed the lack of information in an other article published by the magharebia.com website. According to this article, the asssociations and the Ministere de la Solidarité nationale have no clue about the number of orphans in Algeria (they didnt even bother putting them in the "recensement national"). But we know that their numbers keep growing, based on the fact that there are about 3000 single mothers who give birth each year, and living with a child out of wedlock in algeria is a very difficult task, so most of the time they weill give them up.
They also talk about SOS-Kinderdorf and how it was created after the 1980 Chlef earthquake. They discuss their future projects. They wish to also help orphan young adults in accomplishing something good in life (we only talk about the cute kids, but what about that angry teenager with no one to guide him?)
I need a break for now...this is too much of a sensitive subject. But i will keep looking for potential statistics.

I like that Banner Beebo! But let me ask you this....did you just take a random picture of the kids from the internet? Because that could be a source of legal problems if you don't have their permission to use their photo (in their case they're underage too so you would need their legal guardian's permission....). Maybe you could put a cartoon of muslim kids....
We need a real picture... so we'll need someone to take a picture of their siblings for us

Regarding the leaflet, I don't have an experience for it but I think it should contains the following elements:
1- Ayat and Ahadeeth that encourage ppl to donate and take care of orphans :
يَسْأَلُونَكَ مَاذَا يُنفِقُونَ قُلْ مَا أَنفَقْتُم مِّنْ خَيْرٍ فَلِلْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالأَقْرَبِينَ وَالْيَتَامَى وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ وَمَا تَفْعَلُواْ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَإِنَّ اللّهَ بِهِ عَلِيمٌ }البقرة215
وَاعْبُدُواْ اللّهَ وَلاَ تُشْرِكُواْ بِهِ شَيْئاً وَبِالْوَالِدَيْنِ إِحْسَاناً وَبِذِي الْقُرْبَى وَالْيَتَامَى وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَالْجَارِ ذِي الْقُرْبَى وَالْجَارِ الْجُنُبِ وَالصَّاحِبِ بِالجَنبِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ وَمَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُكُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يُحِبُّ مَن كَانَ مُخْتَالاً فَخُوراً النساء 36
قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ( أنا وكافل اليتيم في الجنة هكذا وأشار بالسبابة والوسطى وفرج بينهما ) رواه البخاري
3- A small and targeted message that explains what we are aiming for.
4- and finally, the e-dz banner.

yes I will let you know Insha'Allah Fato @ meeting [should be in a couple of days Insha'Allah]
and I Like W001's idea , my idea for the leaflet is very close to his but Ayaat and Hadiths in English [ + translation] , though I was gonna add a couple of things , like e-mils and phone numbers that ppl can reach for sure ya3nnie contact info , one of the guys I work with in Le Souk does great leaflets , I was planning to ask him to do this for us when I see him again Insha'Allah , he studied publicity so he's good at designing leaflets and stuff , hope I'd find him lol.
We should make it simple but also colourful to get people's attention , big letters Text and images , make it look good and different.
sorry for my late reply , my connection has also been fasting these days lol.
P.S. I Love the banner , looks great Masha'Allah!

A charity event? You mean like a funday or car boot sale summet around those lines?
Well there are loads of charity homes in Algeria, are looking to help the lost needy ones? There's one in Draria..SOS it's called....I think I can get my uncle to get info if you need...I'm not sure though but I can try .gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
Done is better than perfect.

this is me using my contacts and getting Algerians to donate towards a good cause. with all your help and word of mouth, we might be able to have a Topped Out situation which means going over our estimate
Good news everyone.
We are now at DA 73,000 and rising

Ok I want to add a small text on the banner which explains what we're doing... "Help Algerian Orphans celebrate this Eid" is that a good enough statement?? let me know before I post everything on here and start spreading it.
after u do that, just put it on my post (number 1) and also on the announcement page if you dont mind.

In an article of ElWatan (2005), they describe how the desire to adopt is gradually growing in algeria. More and more families want to help out by offering a new family to these kids. For example, in Constantine they receive about 300 potential cases for adoption and only about a third of those cases (80-100) are accepted.
based on the fact that there are about 3000 single mothers who give birth each year, and living with a child out of wedlock in algeria is a very difficult task.
Barakallahu feek Sosso for the research. I was hoping we can get our hands on some factual numbers. It's dissapointing that Algerians still can't have a functioning Department of Statistics.
With regards to your research, I believe the number of Orphan kids has bypassed the 100,000 mark. Which is sad and worrying at the same time. It is infact a good thing that more couples are coming forward to adopt kids but, from what I've seen in Algeria, some couples are going for a surrogacy where for example a relative couple become pregnant with the intention of handing over the new born to the impotent couple. The impotent couple usually pay for the expenses and labour costs for the expecting mother. It is heart breaking at times to see this happening because no matter what the intentions are, no mother would easily give up her child.

Just a small remark : can we put a direct contact (phone n° , mail)? I mean a foreign person will not need to register to the forum, reply to the topic , to be able to donate . try to see about it . If you think its not necessary , it's okey.
Good luck !

To share the banners, I have posted the codes below which will have embedded links to this forum. spread the word and share. Thanks!
Barakallahu feek kho n thanks for the Psd file. I think the image is missing from the main announcement page. maybe u deleted it or moved it to an album and forgot to relink.
