If you want to donate directly to Pamoja Leo than you can make the payment on-line at Pamoja Leo’s secure web payment page. Be sure to tell us who the payment is from so we can say a big thank you.

You can also make monthly donations through this secure link. We accept all major cards and process payments through two gateways: PayPal or Stripe.

If the person who is donating the money is a British Tax Payer then we are eligible to receive Gift Aid from the British Government on your donation. All UK registered charities can reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer, effectively increasing the amount of the donation. If you agree to this on the donation page then Gift Aid means that the taxman will add 25p to every pound you give.

If you are a tax payer in the UK then please do tick the box on the donation page as 25% more funding will be a very significant amount of money.

However, if you are not a British Tax Payer then unfortunately we are not eligible to claim Gift Aid on your donation, so please do not tick the box on the donation page.

Yes. Together Today our UK organisation is a Registered Charity in the UK. Its Charity Number is 1162710.

Pamoja Leo in Tanzania is registered as a not-for profit organisation.

Ed & Georgina are unpaid volunteers and receive no financial incentive for doing what they do here in Tanzania.
Pamoja Leo requires a minimum of £1,000 per month to operate. This covers salaries, rent, bills and basic operational costs.

We also apply for grants to fund our one-off projects but unfortunately they do not always like to fund these basic needs that we have to keep our doors open.

For the first year of operation, Ed & Georgina spent their own money to get their projects up and running. Now, with help from our closest friends we are getting nearer to our final goal of covering all operational costs.
