About The Date Project
The Date Project was established in 2015 with a simple idea and concept, to raise funds for the Al-Huda Bakery in Syria by selling a box of the finest Medjool dates for £10 during Ramadan.
At The Date Project, we are dedicated to combining the joyous spirit of Ramadan with the commitment to making a positive impact on the world. Our mission is to provide a sweet and meaningful way for communities to come together, fostering unity and compassion.
By selling high-quality dates during the blessed month of Ramadan, we aim to raise funds for charity initiatives that empower and uplift those in need.
We believe that each date sold is not just a delectable treat but a symbol of shared blessings, contributing to the betterment of lives. Join us in breaking fast with purpose, as we work towards creating a world where the sweetness of charity knows no bounds.
In envisioning the future of The Date Project, we take immense pride in our journey of impact since 2015. This volunteer-led initiative, driven by the collective spirit of goodwill, has successfully sold 1.2 million date tins, each embodying a shared moment of generosity during the blessed month of Ramadan. Through these efforts, we have raised over 4.8 million for charitable causes, directing 100% of our profits toward making a meaningful difference.
The Date Project holds a unique place in the hearts of those who seek to celebrate the spirit of Ramadan. When people order a tin of dates, they not only partake in a tradition that brings joy to their homes but also contribute to a greater cause. These date tins, filled with the sweetness of generosity, also make perfect gifts for family and friends, symbolizing the essence of sharing and caring during this sacred month.
This purely volunteer-led project stands as a testament to the power of grassroots activism, showcasing how a dedicated group of individuals can catalyze substantial change. The Date Project has become a beacon of hope and compassion, providing essential bread in Syria, funding three water desalination plants in Gaza, delivering crucial food and vital aid in Yemen, supporting Rohingya communities, offering eye care in Pakistan, and backing over 200 Syrian orphans and their families.
Our vision is to amplify this impact, expanding our reach and deepening our commitment to creating a world where the sweetness of our shared endeavors transcends borders. Join us in forging a future where the sale of each date tin not only satisfies a sweet craving but becomes a powerful force for positive change, leaving an enduring legacy of support and kindness around the globe
