Equipe has been bringing help to the needy for several years and many changes have happened over that time.
We are not a disaster fund which makes desperate appeals on the back of some catastrophic incident sending a portion of your gift to the scene while keeping some back for processing and administration, we are on the ground long term affecting communities.
Equipe has been providing feeding programs in East African schools so that the children get at least one nutritious meal per day. These programs have historically been funded through church groups but of late this support has diminished through changing circumstances
Our program has been providing one meal to over 800 children per day but we find ourselves unable to continue due to depletion of funds. In recent times we have encouraged our partners to look at self supporting systems to supplement or even replace these programs, some progress has been made but there is still a shortfall.
Equipe currently sends out £1300 per term, that’s £325 a month, just over £11 per day to help provide a meal for 800 children.
The math is staggering, that’s less than 1.5p per child per day.
Of the 800 children we feed, less than 100 are receiving any form of child sponsorship.
Equipes feeding program is in serious risk of ceasing as we only have enough money in the fund to provide for one more term.
We operate and achieve all that we do with only 5 part time volunteers and so are appealing for your assistance.
We need your help to enable us to continue this vital work, through donations (no matter how small), through you organising a fund raising event such as car boot or garage sale, coffee morning, cake sale etc. etc.
Please contact us if you can help.
