Help us Build a House for Mluo

Last year, we heard about the desperate plight of Kaneno and her family. She nearly lost a child when a black mamba snake crawled through the almost non-existent walls of her mud hut home and attacked her youngest daughter.

With your kind donations, we commissioned the building of a new home for Kaneno and bought 3 beds for the family too. Her story is featured in our documentary, #TreesAreTheKey
narrated by Kate Winslet.

Our Board suggested we set up a special annual bursary for a family in dire need of a new home and recently, we were alerted to a much loved senior in the tree planting community, called Mluo.

This is her story.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like The Word Forest Organisation 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 The Word Forest Organisation 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 The Word Forest Organisation 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.
