About the Malawi Education Project

Donate

MEP relies on donations from friends and supporters to keep us going. If you would like to support the project, please take the time to fill out a standing order form. Whether it's a one off donation, or a regular donation of just £5 a month, it all makes a huge difference.

When you fill out the form, please take the time to complete the gift aid form too. This is a short declaration confirming that you are a UK taxpayer. Once this is completed, with any cash donation you make to the project, MEP can reclaim the basic rate income tax paid on the gift from HRMC. For a basic-rate taxpayer, this adds approximately 28% to the value of any gift made under Gift Aid. This means that for every pound you donate, we can claim a further 28 pence!

We also have a MEP Just Giving account. Just Giving is an easy way for you to fund raise and donate to MEP online. It is the leading charity fundraising website, enabling you to raise money for the causes you care about. You can easily create your own page for your fundraising event, and invite family and friends to donate money to your efforts easily online, with all payments going direct to MEP. Just Giving captures donations electronically and also reclaims Gift Aid automatically - saving MEP a lot of time and cost.

Resource Donations

In line with our new strategy, MEP is no longer accepting general donations of second hand educational resources to ship to Malawi. We would thank everyone who has contacted MEP with offers of books, but we are now focusing our efforts on supporting the in country book chain and local economy by investing in books produced in Malawi. We may still accept resources if they have been specifically requested by one of our partners in Malawi.

However, we do still have a busy office to run in the UK, as well as events to administrate and promote, so surplus stationary will still be very gratefully received and help us to minimise the cost of our UK operations.
