Individual Donations

    Ensuring accountability of your individual donation:

    Whilst regular donations enable us to plan ahead, a large proportion of our income comes from individual donations or from fundraising events. For all our donors, we realise that accountability is key.

    You may wish to purchase something specific, and we have a list of items we currently need, which we update whenever we get new information from India.

    Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss what is of greatest need at the moment. Items are purchased locally in India, and may at first appear expensive, especially for India, however we aim to buy well-built and substantial items which will stand the test of time, thus reducing future expenditure.

    Although we need these specific items, our monthly running costs for the two homes are nearly £6000, for which we rely on both individual and monthly donations. Any donations towards general running costs are always gratefully received.
