Amelemiassi Collective – Sponsorship Goal £720

100% funded

The Amelemiassi community group, of 8 women and 2 men, formed as a result of hearing other beneficiaries talking about their experiences and opportunities through IADES.

Since being together they have made new friends and grown in confidence. Together, they are a dynamic and supportive team who have helped each other form new business links. 

They feel that the training sessions, role play and opportunities to discuss plans or worries have been the most beneficial to them as a group.

They have already received training in promoting diversity and interpersonal relationships between parent and child and over the next 3 months they will attend workshops on the fight against gender-based violence, citizenship, human rights, reproductive health and family planning which will run alongside their business training.

The President of the group is 38 year old Afiwa, who works 60 hours per week whilst raising her children. She sells fish and wishes to buy more stock so she can increase her profit and give her family more security.

Most members of the Amelimiassi group sell food produce, like the local food Kom and Akpan or fresh food like oranges, fish, yams and porridge.

Kaissou Kossi, is the only carpenter within the group and works anything upwards of 100 hours per week to support his family and send his children to school. His loan will buy more materials and tools which will improve his work. One day he would like to open a training centre to teach others his skills.

Make a small gift to the Amelemiassi group today and make a big difference to their lives.

Add Gift Aid

Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Deki to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Deki we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Deki to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Deki will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Deki receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
