Project Luangwa is a registered UK charity (Charity Commission Registration No. 1119335).So if you are a UK tax payer you can fill out a Gift Aid form and email it to us. This will enable us to claim back additional money from the UK Government to spend on our Projects.
Important Note: Would you please email us as soon as you have made a donation so that we can track any specific wishes and report back to you that your donation has been successfully received. In particular we need to know when you have donated money for child sponsorship.
Sponsor a Child
The cost of sponsorship pays for everything a pupil needs for one full year of education and varies from child to child according to their school and needs. Donors will receive letter from the students twice a year and updates from Project Luangwa tracking their progress.
Please help if you can, especially where a child needs to attend boarding school due to their home being far from a secondary school and they have no choice if they are to receive an education. It is far harder to find sponsors for these children due to the higher cost of support. Thank you.
Learn how to help by emailing us at email@example.com.
