We are trying to repair 200-300 broken hand pumps each year, educate 250 of the poorest children, provide clean water, teach agriculture, and run an orphanage. All this takes money. The Charity is run by volunteers. No-one is paid a wage, and the trustees cover the expenses of running the Charity. Every penny received* is used in Kenya supporting the charity’s aims. For the latest set of accounts, see here.
Money goes a long way in Kenya. Even £1 can make a big difference. Most people just want to send a simple donation, but for the more adventurous, there are 9 other ways to support the charity:
Make a donation
Please post a cheque (made out to Osiligi Charity Projects) along with a gift aid form to Osiligi Charity Projects, Elwell House, West Buckland, Devon, EX32 0SW
By credit / debit card or Paypal
