Individual giving

We provide our clients with the infrastructure and training to kickstart their enterprising nature. Donations used with our group-savings programmes provide the marginalised poor with simple bank accounts for the first time, whilst any donations which are used in credit-based programmes can be recycled again and again. If you choose to donate money online your payment will be securely processed by Charity Checkout.

Compared to many larger faith-led charities which have been around for decades, we are a young, agile organisation. We work with a very close network of partner organisations on the ground that allows for a personal touch with our clients. The same goes for our donors. If you pick up the phone or send off an email, you can be sure that we’ll get right back to you. If you’d like to see the work we do, we often take donors out to visit our projects.

 

 

£5 p/m

We urge all of our supporters to consider monthly donations to charity, it allows us to plan for the future and lets us evaluate how many programmes we can start during any given year. 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.
