Kekeli Community Group

Formed in 2017, the Kekeli group was established thanks to an entrepreneur in the community who has previously benefitted from a Deki loan and training as part of a savings group.

 When she moved to the Amadahomé region in Lome, she wanted to bring the same benefit to her new community. She talked to local entrepreneurs who were ready to expand their businesses and together they formed the group with the help of IADES.

Now with 17 members, the group has a diverse set of entrepreneurs, their businesses range from selling selling fresh fish, fruits, cereals and tomatoes to running a hairdressing stall or preparing and selling yoghurt and degue. Degue, pictured below, is a sweet millet couscous dish, eaten in most of West Africa, and special favourite in the local area in Lome. It’s made with wheat or millet granules being mixed with milk, sweetened condensed milk, or yogurt, as well as dried fruit such as raisins, desiccated coconut, and spices such as nutmeg.

The Kekeli Community Group members are looking forward to raising the £1,869 to further strengthen their businesses and improve their living conditions thanks to generous sponsors, such as yourself. Being financially included and receiving vital business and financial training will  increase their revenue and purchasing ability and ultimately help the Kekeli Group and their whole community develop financial resilience for the long-term.

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.
