You can really help…

“a great organisation working at grass roots” 

“the direct way the money is used for the good of poor families”

“I know from experience that the money that I give to TIP is used in a hands-on and effective way, funding actions that are concrete, and target the people most in need” *

We survive on a mixture of individual private donations and institutional grants. All of our work – getting marginalized children into school, getting urgent medicine to their family members, developing sustainable ways for them to provide for themselves through micro-finance projects – and the necessary work of our small administrative team who keep us going and legal – is funded this way.

And if you’re a UK taxpayer the good news is that your donation may qualify for Gift Aid.

A small donation can make a big impact: 1 euro provides a drink and a healthy snack for two children doing our Saturday educational activities; 10 euros takes a woman or child for a medical check-up. And many of the children tramping through the mud to regular school are wearing shoes or a coat previously worn and now donated by a kind friend of TIP.
