Donate money online
We provide our members with the financial services and training necessary to grow their businesses. We train groups in literacy, numeracy, basic business skills and how to begin saving a little each month. Donations used in our programmes provide the marginalised poor with simple bank accounts and business training for the first time. If you choose to donate money online your payment will be securely processed by Charity Checkout.
We encourage all of our supporters to consider making monthly donations. It allows us to plan for the future and lets us evaluate how many programmes we can start during any given year. See below how much small monthly donations can add up to support our programmes.
covers the daily salary of two members of our programme field staff who will form savings groups, deliver training, make loans, and give mentoring and oversight to our entrepreneurs whilst also reporting progress back to us in the UK.
covers the cost of one training session in our Kenyan programme, enabling a member of our specialist staff to visit a community Trust Group and provide financial literacy and business skills training as well as mentoring and pastoral support.
will cover the cost of training a new Project Officer each of whom equip and teach around 300 women per year to expand their businesses and ultimately equip them to lift their households out of poverty.
One-off donations will allow us to continue supporting our country programmes. We appreciate every penny that our supporters generously donate. Whilst we happily accept cheques and cash, when you donate money to charity online it allows us to minimise the amount of admin, meaning that your generosity has the greatest impact.

If you have a heart for a particular project - we’d love you to join one of our Giving Groups. After a time-limited period of funding (typically five years) our programmes become fully self-sustaining without financial support from Five Talents. You (and your friends, family, company, church, social club etc.) can join a Giving Group - pledging to give an annual donation to a programme until it becomes fully self-sustaining. When you pledge money to a programme we make sure you stay up to date on that programme’s progress through regular updates and, if you like, project visits. Some of our Butere Giving Group members cut the ribbon at the programme’s official launch in Kenya! You'll have a personal connection with the programme through your Giving Group, and the incredible satisfaction of knowing you’ve helped a whole region (typically 2,500 families) move from start to sustainability. Contact us to learn more about Giving Groups - and read more about the impact you could have here.
“Five Talents has a proven track record in helping people to lift themselves out of poverty. I know, because I have seen their expansion over eight years. Now donors have a chance to invest in something more. If you commit to provide the same sum every year for five years, you can help establish a whole programme in Kenya, supporting thousands of individuals, become self-sufficient. I helped to get the first one going and lots more are planned. Five Talents needs donors who commit for five years to an investment in people’s lives, giving rural communities dignity and self-sufficency.” - Nigel Wildish, Kericho Giving Group
