Gifts to Transform Lives

We all have that person in our lives who is impossible to buy gifts for, right?

The dad who already has everything - he's got you, after all! Or the mum who says all she wants is for you to be happy. The sister who doesn't need her own stuff when she can borrow yours! And what about the brother who already has enough socks? Then there's the great aunt who doesn't agree with all that consumerism, the teacher who already gets 23 bars of chocolate, and the neighbour who you're not entirely sure what they might like.

That's where alternative gifts come in: instead, you buy them the gift of giving. From as little as £5, you can now purchase gifts for all those hard-to-buy-for friends and family that will not only bring a joyful smile to their faces, but can also make a huge difference to the lives of those less fortunate.

You'll have the choice to receive an e-certificate that you can forward by email to your recipient, or a physical certificate mailed to your address that you can personalise and send or give by hand. To receive a physical certificate, you must provide your mailing address - either with your donation or separately by emailing us at Also, please don't donate anonymously as we won't then be able to see your details in order to send your gift certificate. Rest assured that in compliance with current rules we will only communicate with you in respect of your donation/gift, unless you have provided consent for your details to be added to our email subscription list.

£5 will provide access to water to 10 people for a whole year which will allow more children to attend school

Water is critical for survival, and even more so during periods of severe drought, that many of the communities we support must frequently endure. Typically, it's the young girls in a family who are then sent out daily, in search of water, encountering danger along disputed river beds, and from excavating holes in the precarious dry river beds rocks, before carrying their heavy burden for many miles. In doing so they are denied the education that over time would help to lift them and their families from such poverty. And yet, below ground there is often an abundance of water. The solution is to drill more boreholes, and bring the water to the communities for drinking, cooking and bathing, to watering holes to keep their animals healthy, and to irrigate their crops.

Your gift helps them achieve a more sustainable way of life, and to get all the girls back in school!
