Home > How regular donations support our projects

A regular donation is incredibly valuable for our work.  It enables us to plan more effectively about how we work in a community, and ensure that we can continue to help those most in need when they need it.  It’s this type of donation that ensures that we can commit to supporting communities when they need it and give them a helping hand to break the cycle of poverty for good. Every little helps.

  • £5 per month helps provide a daily meal for a 5 year old child attending our community-based childcare centres
  • £10 per month helps keep our vehicles on the road so our field officers can reach remote villages to plan and support projects
  • £15 per month helps us train a volunteer to provide fun play-based early years education to children

How to make a regular donation

If you are able to consider making a regular donation, then there are two ways you can do this. Regular donations can be set up via our Virgin Money Giving regular giving page. Alternatively, you can set up direct debit or standing order with your bank. All details you need are on our regular giving form which you can use to set up an online donation or ask your bank to set up a donation for you.

Gift Aid

If you’re a UK taxpayer, then allowing Joshua Orphan and Community Care to claim Gift Aid on your donation means we get an extra 25% on top of your donation – at no cost to you. This makes a massive difference to our work. To allow us to claim Gift Aid, please complete and return the Gift Aid Form.

How your support helps train volunteers like Joyce: Joyce has been a volunteer at Nchokera community-based childcare centre since 2017 when the centre was opened in 2017. In 2019, Joshua supported Joyce to complete a course in Early Childhood Development at Mother Theresa Children’s Centre in Blantyre. Joyce says that the course helped her understand how children develop and what support they need to thrive. Joyce plans to continue to develop her knowledge and skills – and hopes that this may lead to paid employment in the future.
