TAO's work brings smiles to orphans and vulnerable children.

TAO’s work brings smiles to orphans and vulnerable children.

We are extremely grateful to all our donors. All funding – large and small – makes a real difference to the lives of orphans and their families.

Our major donors provide the majority of our funding, meaning our marketing and fundraising costs are very low, ensuring that almost all our funding is spent on our projects in Uganda.

Smaller donations also make a big difference, as our projects can be enlarged in many ways – for example, by providing more inputs, like bee hives or goats. Some ideas of what your donation can achieve are shown below.

Donations to us can be made through the charitable and highly secure Virgin Money Giving. See other ways to donate now.
