We'd love your help! 

If you have any ideas, or things you'd like to donate (old laptops, mobile phones, educational materials, sports equipment, children's clothes, sewing machines or old tools), please get in touch at swatscharity@gmail.com.

Paying teacher's salaries, providing hot meals for the children and ensuring the school is well maintained costs around £900 per month (or £10 a month, per child).  In addition we try to arrange periodic health checks for the children too. 

In the longer term, we're saving to buy or lease a permanent piece of land to expand or move the school to a permanent plot, any surplus funds will go towards this cause.  Every single penny goes directly to Sierra Leone and all administrative costs are paid personally by the trustees. 

How to donate

You can donate to SWATS through Golden Giving, which minimises processing and transaction costs and and can also reclaim gift aid.  It also offers the option to set up a recurring direct debit or standing order option.  These are extremely helpful as we try to meet the on-going and future running costs of the school.

Many thanks!
