Back To School

£0 of £600 raised

The corona virus situation in Ethiopia is – just like everywhere else – far from over.

In the EEF hostel’s immediate neighbourhood the situation feels reasonably safe with most people adhering to social distancing rules.

Since March we have been self-isolating (very successfully) at the EEF hostel. However, this month schools will re-open and this means 2,000 children coming back to School of Tomorrow from all parts of Addis Ababa, cramped into buses and mini taxis.

Like parents everywhere else in the world, we are concerned about our students’ health and we will do everything we can to protect them.

This means further ramping up hygiene and protection for the individual students on their way to and whilst being at school.

We’re therefore raising funds to purchase material for masks (because thanks to our lovely volunteer Claire we know how to make them 😊, hand sanitiser and small sanitizer bottles for each student.

Please help by making a donation towards the cost if you can!

Thank you !

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!If you are a UK taxpayer your donation could be worth 25% more at no extra cost to you. It means that for every £1 you donate to Ethiopian Education Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

I understand I must pay enough income tax and/or capital gains tax each tax year to cover the amount of Gift Aid that all charities and community amateur sports clubs claim on my donations in that tax year, and I am responsible for paying any difference. Please remember to let us know if your tax status, name or address change or if you wish to cancel your Gift Aid declaration.

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 Ethiopian Education Foundation 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.
