How you can support EHT Uganda
The Education and Health Trust Uganda builds on the small scale work, mainly in remote areas of Uganda which get little attention from larger NGOs, that for over fifteen years until 2013 was carried out on a voluntary basis by Lois Pollock. Apart from ad-hoc contributions by a few well wishers, she was self-funded which inevitably limited what she could undertake but her style of responding to community needs with tailor-made workshops using basic resources was proved to work.
In 2013 the Education and Health Trust Uganda was set up. The range of work and indications of what can be achieved at relatively low cost are reported on this website. It is significant of the "value for money" of this work that a major cost of training work is the air fare from the UK.
The Trust is entirely dependent on financial donations to sustain the ongoing projects, continue to support our current students and be able to take on any new community projects in Uganda.
Use of Trust Funds
At the discretion of the trustees travel and subsistence costs of people carrying out work on behalf of the Trust may be fully or partly refunded. All other funds will be devoted to directly supporting work which fits within the aims of the Trust – and as described on this website.
None of the Trustees (listed in the About section of this website) receives any remuneration for work undertaken on behalf of the Trust and administrative costs are virtually nil. That means that any money you give will be is given in its entirety to the projects in Uganda.
How you can help
Donations, large or small, will enable the Trust to continue and extend its work. Although you may request that your donation goes to a specific project as described elsewhere on the website we should prefer that you merely indicated a preference (which we will normally honour) as circumstances may change and “unrestricted” donations give the Trustees freedom about how to use the money - to support on-going work or meet unpredicted costs as they arise.
You can make a one-off donation:
either by sending a cheque (made out to EHT Uganda) to our Treasurer, David Pollock, at 13 Dunsmure Road, London, N16 5PU
or by making a direct transfer to the Trust's bank account (details below) - this can be done online or in a branch of your bank
or by using your Charities Aid Foundation account if you have one.
Regular donations are particularly valuable as they give us some certainty in our planning. Please consider becoming a regular donor by way of a standing order to your bank. A standing order form can be downloaded HERE: when you have completed it please send it to our treasurer, David Pollock, at 13 Dunsmure Road, London, N16 5PU.
By whatever means you choose to donate, please complete a Gift Aid form if you are a UK basic rate tax payer. You can download the Gift Aid form HERE. When you have signed it, please send it to our treasurer, David Pollock, at 13 Dunsmure Road, London, N16 5PU.
