1% funded

The Agoe Assiyeye group is an all female community group with 23 members, ranging from 32 to 72 years old. Even though there is a 40 year age gap, between the youngest and the oldest, they all share the same ambition – to improve the living conditions of their family and provide a better opportunity for their children.

The ladies of the Agoe Assiyeye group all have children, some are widowed, and support the family on their own by running small businesses.

Ama Atcholi is 72, is married to a retired officer and together they have three grown-up children aged 40, 37 and 33. She still works 105 hours a week selling charcoal. She has applied for a loan which she would use to buy more stock. Her long-term ambition is to be able to buy a plot of land on which to build a house for her children.

Foussena Aboulaya is a 55 year old widow with six children aged between 24 and 12 to support. Two of the children are still at school and Foussena wants them to finish their education. To provide for her family she works 84 hours a week, making and selling porridge and plastic plates. She would use the loan she has requested to buy the ingredients – corn, sugar, beans and oil.

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.
