Boost your donation by 25% at no extra cost to you

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Lonely Orphans to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Lonely Orphans we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

* I am a UK taxpayer. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on my donations I must pay the difference. Please let us know if your tax status, name or address changes.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Lonely Orphans receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

HELPING PEOPLE TO HELP THEMSELVES

Breaking the cycle of poverty by helping people to change their own destinies.

Sustainability and livelihood projects help break the vicious cycle of poverty, rather than perpetuating a dependency on handouts. Poverty traps children and families. But with adequate support, skills training and resources, they can rise out to help themselves. 

Lonely Orphans’ vision is to support vulnerable children and families to help themselves out of poverty. We do this by:

  • Ensuring long term education, through our schools projects, empowering children with the necessary skills to become employable
  • Focusing on educating girls out of poverty
  • Training women with specific skills to become self sustainable and earn an income
  • Providing men with relevant training to seek employment

Lonely Orphans is developing innovative ways that encourage sustainable economic progress, even in the most hopeless of situations. So often in our beneficiary consultations, recurring themes are for support with opportunities to help themselves with dignity, rather than handouts.

What we have done so far and our plans for the future:

  • Sewings Skills Training Centre, Rohingya Refugee Camps
  • Bottle Recycling Centre, employing widows in Thailand
  • Schools in Bangladesh (Rohingya Refugee Camps), Schools in Turkey (for exiled Uyghur Refugees) and Orphanages in Thailand.

So far we have helped hundreds through a variety of training such as, providing them with sewing skills and upon completion of the set programme, they were awarded with a sewing machine.

You can be part of this long term change.

Support Lonely Orphans today. Together, we’re saving lives. Together, we’re one family.
