Different ways of supporting us

We welcome support for TEABAG and have a number of suggestions to make.

General donations

Much the most useful are donations that the charity can apply to whatever is necessary. Training a student at the Vocational College costs around £125/year.  Of this, the student or their family pay one third, the Ghana government pays one third, and TEABAG pays one third.  This pays for the running costs of the college, the teachers’ salaries and examination fees.  It does not cover capital projects. The charity provides school uniforms to around 80 children a year.  (A school uniform is absolutely essential - without it, a  child cannot go to school.)  The uniforms are made in the Textiles Department at the Vocational College.  However, the materials cost around £1200 each year. A donation that we can spend on the schools or college as appropriate would be much appreciated.  100% of your donation will go directly to Ghana - the UK operation does not take any.  Click the link below to make a donation securely online, and allow us to claim Gift Aid. Special projects We have an ongoing programme of improvement works, to improve the living conditions of the students and staff.  We have recently completed a hostel for 80 girls, and we are hoping to do the same for the boys.  (There are some pictures on the college web page.) Capital projects are expensive, but we have in the past been fortunate to have generous donors who have made these possible.   Capital projects are run from the UK, with money for materials and labour disbursed only as necessary and against results.  As a result, the girls’ hostel was completed on time, and on budget - probably a first for Ghana! Visits to Mankoadze It is usually possible to visit the Vocational College, and see our operation for yourself.  We can advise on travel arrangements and accommodation.  If you are able to teach or help with capital projects, you will be able to make a real contribution during your visit. Donations in kind We are often offered books and other items to send to Ghana.  Unfortunately, importing into Ghana is difficult (clearing Customs is expensive and time-consuming).  We are working hard to find ways to solve this, but in the meantime, we are finding it difficult to accept donations in kind, unless it’s the kind of thing that we can take in a suitcase when we visit.
