Hungry Babies Project

Porridge and Pens have had a long standing partnership with the Mother Theresa Orphanage in Kumasi, since 2009.

The Porridge and Pens team have always sent donations of baby clothes and toys to the orphanage and lots of the team have spent time volunteering at the orphanage whilst always wishing we could do more to help.  

We are now able to do a little something to help the many children at the Mother Theresa Orphanage.

Mabel, the receiver of our first Educational Grant, volunteers every Saturday at the orphanage and she has relayed to us there are several babies currently at the orphanage but the sisters do not have enough funds to feed them.  The babies are currently being fed less than half the amount of formula powder required and are therefore hungry and are quickly becoming malnourished.

It costs the charity £60 per month for Mabel to buy enough formula to donate so the babies can be fed the correct amount.

OUR DONATIONS

We use Donation Manager to handle our donations so we pay less in bank charges and receive more of your donations. We can accept donations via Paypal and most credit cards. If you're a UK taxpayer, please Gift Aid your donations  so we receive an extra 25p for every £1 you give us.

Five of our Girl Power students return to school this month to complete their final year of school, whether at junior or senior level.

The length of the equipment list needed to study certain courses can vary considerably. We want to give Girl Power students the resources to study the subjects they need for their career path and not have to choose their course based on their limited finances.
Just £20 a month pays towards a place on Girl Power which covers school and exam fees, uniforms, books and equipment as well as many other benefits. If you would like to help a girl achieve her potential please get in touch with us.
