How you can help

Donations to the bursaries fund are always welcome. Details are given on the Project - Education - Bursaries page in the Projects section of the website.
Funds are needed for projects in Dedza. These are explained in the various Projects pages. The general activities of the Partnership also require finance. For example, the cost of sending out a shipping container is £6000.Donations can be made -
If you are a UK taxpayer we can claim back 28p from the Inland Revenue for every £1 you give at no cost to you. Please complete and return the form to enable this.
When opportunities arise, we send a shipping container with useful materials to Dedza. We do not have permanent storage to collect material over a long time. We organise a container when an organisation provides a sufficient quantity of material in a short period, we can get temporary accommodation to prepare the shipment and have funds for the container. At that time we seek other materials to fill the container.
In the past containers have been sent when Norwich City Council had large numbers of redundant PCs and printers because of an up-grade and when school equipment was made available from the reorganisation of Middle Schools in Norwich.
We will appeal for supplementary materials when a container is being prepared.
From time to time, we need assistance with work such as cleaning and packing equipment for a shipping container, helping to organise fundraising events. If you would like to do any of this type of work, let us know your name and phone number. We will put you on our database to call when needed.
You may have some knowledge and experience that would be useful to the projects and activities promoted by the Partnership. This could be in the fields of computing, education, health, horticulture/agriculture, business/entrepreneurship, tourism, etc. You will get an idea of the skills we need from the various Projects pages.
You may know of individuals (eg a relative or friend) or organisations (eg employer, business contact or funding organisation) that can help us. If so, please pass on our details to them or contact us with the information.
We won't have thought of everything. You may have ideas about how people and organisations in and around Norwich can help Dedza or about how Dedza can provide useful information and assistance to institutions in Norwich. Please let us have your ideas.
