KitAid Grants

Probably one of the most enjoyable aspects of KitAid is being able to help so many people across the world.  As you will know, we operate a very cost effective model and we have always worked on the basis that if we do build up a surplus of funds, we will mange our finances responsibly and make grants for what we consider to be surplus to needs, rather than sitting on money in the bank.

As a result of the 15th Anniversary Dinner and some other donations we were able to release £4k for small grants to charities we know and work with.  We have made the following grants to

  • Craft Aid - £1,000                     Working with orphanages and sports projects in Uganda
  • Stegota FC - £1,000                To be used on a special project for the community to supply shirt printing equipment
  • Maleala Lesotho - £750          To buy kit, equipment and boots for 35 players from age of 10 – 16 years
  • Mbale Uganda - £1,000          To buy kit, equipment, goal posts, netballs for 200 pupils at Budwale Secondary School
