We need your help

Text transcript of this video

Currently we urgently need support to help 5,000 children access primary school education in the Gedo region of Somalia over the next few years. Your support for this project could be life-changing.

For example…

  • a gift of €10,800 could provide school lunches for 200 children for one year
  • a gift of €3,200 could provide a simple school kitchen with fuel efficient stove and cooking utensils
  • a gift of €1,000 could construct a school water point (tank and tap for hand-washing)

How your support has made a difference

Helping Women in Uganda

Through our partner, the Mbikko Integrated Development Project in Uganda, we support women to develop economic self sufficiency and better health and education services for their families. Over 11,500 people benefitted from this project in 2012 for a contribution of €23,000.

Growing more food in India

43% of children in India are underweight. In 2013, in the poor Odisha region of India we helped farmers to produce nutritious orange flesh sweet potato which is available all year round and helps reduce malnutrition. The additional crop was then sold to generate income.

This successful project supplied seeds, tools and training for one year at a cost of €51,000.
