You have never really lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.

The Dust Project

You send £10. I receive £10.

100% of the donation received goes to the children and communities that need it. We do not use any of your money on administration costs, instead the trustees cover all of The Dust Project's overheads through their private business profits. Online giving to building projects through Virgin Giving incurs a small transaction fee by them but 100% of the money we receive goes directly to the project.

"The school provides us with food when we don't have enough to eat.  If we are sick the school pays for us to see a doctor. Thanks to my sponsor I am hopeful about my future."
