Building

A safe and secure home provides an essential base for children to grow up in a nurturing environment, free from the threat of snakes and scorpions and dry from the elements. We also fund building projects such as community centres, orphanages and schools to break the cycle of poverty.

A well will ensure families have access to clean drinking water, freeing them from the risk of drinking contaminated water and contracting water-borne diseases.

Child

By providing an education, you can provide the possibility for a child in poverty to break the cycle of deprivation. By sponsoring a place at an orphanage you can provide their basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and safety. There are different sponsorship options available depending on the needs of the child.

A Word of Transparency from the Trustees of The Dust Project

As founders and Trustees, we freely volunteer 100% of our time, energy and support to The Dust Project… and we do it out of sincere love for the people and the virtue of the projects. No part of any donation goes into a salary for us. We’re proud, however, that because of the growth of The Dust Project over recent years, it has become necessary to employ local Sri Lankans in the communities where we work— to navigate the logistics of our building sites, land purchases, Volunteer Trips, Child Sponsorship Program, Community Outreach, etc. To create and sustain jobs for locals has always been and continues to be a goal for this Project. The money to pay for these small but vital salaries comes from the General Fund— including unspecified one-off donations, and the profit from ticket sales to fundraising events such as our Dust Balls and Quiz Nights. For the building works, specifically, it is inherently and necessarily absorbed into the overall cost which we fundraise— for a House, Well, or Toilet— and is factored into that lump sum. We retain, however, that the amount you send to support a child each month belongs to that child, in full. You send £20. That child receives £20— which goes into his or her education fees, nourishment, clothing, supplies, medical help, and support. And really, when you stop to think about it… £20 for a month isn’t much at all. That’s why we want them to get as much bang for your buck as possible! Thank you.

dust_project_plaque

If you decide to cover the complete cost of a project, whether it is a community building, a well or a home, we can arrange for a plaque to be displayed with your name or business onto the construction. Alternatively, you might like the plaque to be made in memory of a loved one.
