Small regular donations create an ongoing sustainable base from which we can work.You can do this by joining our crowdfunding campaign on Global Giving and subscribe to recurring donation

Once off donations support us to cover an expense or buy something specific for the project.​

We love to get items that are recycled such as old toys, stationary, books, board games, we will find a happy home for them! These materials help us to enhance our libraries, stationary and art cupboard and give games and toys to the children that they would not otherwise have. Please select from below to find ways you can help us and we will get back to you shortly. We would ask you to reuse rather than spend money buying new material
