If you do not have a school uniform or attend school well presented you may not be allowed to attend lessons and the children are often sent away. This is a massive problem in rural South Africa.

  • One month’s pre-school education £14 per child
  • Pack of Nappies £15
  • Filling a gas bottle £28

Without electricity or gas the only other option is to heat water and cook over an open fire. Not only is this dangerous but children and women are sent to find fire wood, often carrying more than they should, only to have to repeat the task the next day.

Often new mothers are young and unaware of where to turn for help. A baby pack can be a big help and relief to a new mother.

1.5 Donations in lieu

The gift that keeps giving

In our privileged and wealthy community many of us feel we have more material possessions than we need, so what better way to make a difference than to ask friends and family to make a donation in lieu of a wedding, birthday, Christmas or anniversary gift? We can supply promotional material to explain the wonderful work their gift will allow us to do.

Why not set up your own fundraising page at www.uk.virginmoneygiving.com so they can donate online, or collect the money yourself and send us a cheque?

If you, or anyone else donating, are a UK taxpayer we may be able to claim Gift Aid on the gift and add 25% to its value.


1.6 Legacy and memorial giving

Saving and improving lives – long after your own

Many of our kindest donors are those we will never be able to thank for their generosity, but they continue to make a difference to other people’s lives, even after they have passed away, because they have remembered our cause in their will.

There are many ways you can make a bequest. For example you can leave what remains of your estate, (or a percentage of what remains) after all other bequests and debts have been paid, or you can specify a particular sum of money, an insurance policy or item. A solicitor or professional will writer will be able to advise you.

We are always extremely grateful to receive any memorial or legacy gift and promise that we will use it to provide a better future for families and communities in need in Africa.
