Make your donations go further

The Government operates a scheme called Gift Aid that allows charities to claim the basic rate tax on every pound donated. So if you donated £100 to The T.E.A.. Project, it means that you’ll actually be giving us at least £125.

Giving under Gift Aid means that so much more money can be raised at no extra cost to our donors.

To ensure that the Gift Aid claim is valid, meaning we can claim the money back, it’s vitally important that all the information asked for on the Gift Aid Declaration Form is provided.

A donation to The T.E.A. Project enables us to provide the essential training and workshops needed to empower vulnerable children living in poverty.

A gift of £10 provides vital T.E.A.-Training materials, £30 funds one fully staffed equipped day of L.I.F.E. Training and £100 allows The T.E.A. Project to employ a local Project Worker full time.

We are a grass roots charity doing some big work. Every penny is felt. Your donation is vital to that success.

My Internship Experience with The T.E.A. Project

J.Arun JP

As a university student I had a chance to join with The T.E.A., Project and complete my internship period. During that period I chanced to work with the school children, conducted consultation programmes for school children, worked with the community, planned programmes and prepared reports. As a result of working with The T.E.A. Project I could improve myself and handle different tasks successfully. During my internship period I improved my leadership skills, presentation skills, communication skills, adaptability and creativity. I got a lot of experience and knowledge working with The T.E.A. Project. It was a great opportunity for me and I am so happy and proud of myself working in there.
Thank you all for giving me to chance to work with you.

J.Arun JP

When I was university student I felt that I wanted to help people but I didn’t have any idea how I could do that. During this time I found The T.E.A. Project and I was really excited to work with the project. The first two days with the project I realized that I had found a big sister in Racheal. Since December 2016 I have been volunteering with The T.E.A. Project.
I learned to be a positive and good leader, be a kind person to others as an Intern student and later as a volunteer with T.E.A. When I look back at my past I feel that The T.E.A. Project was a ladder to help me build up my future.
Now I am a Counsellor, Social Worker and Lecturer working with the Women and Child Affairs Ministry. Now I am doing great things with the community. I found my inner person after joining with T.E.A.
Thank You T.E.A.
