Provide food to the poor and needy communities

Whilst we are busy preparing food for our families at home, there are many who are struggling to find as much as a hot meal.
Hunger is a major problem affecting hundreds of millions across the world. Even where famine is not the immediate cause, the grinding poverty that characterises many parts of the world leads to malnutrition, illness, and in the worst cases, death. Most people who battle hunger deal with chronic undernourishment and vitamin or mineral deficiencies, which result in stunted growth, weakness and heightened susceptibility to illness.

Countries in which a large portion of the population battles hunger are usually poor and lack the social safety nets we enjoy, such as soup kitchens, food stamps, and job training programmes. When a family cannot grow enough food or earn enough money to buy food, there is nowhere to turn for help.

 The Gambia’s poverty rate remains at 48%, to prevent or treat acute and chronic malnutrition SPOT Project provides nutritious foods to vulnerable people in some of the poorest communities. Your food donations will allow our brothers and sisters to get by comfortably and feed themselves thanks to your support.

Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like SPOT Project 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 SPOT Project 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 SPOT Project 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.

59 million children in Africa suffer from a form of malnutrition known as 'stunting'. This occurs when a child is undernourished during the first 1000 days of their life, which leads to stunted growth as well as impaired cognitive development. Progress towards eradicating this form of malnutrition has been insufficient in Africa since the turn of the century; whilst rates of stunting fell by 62% in East Asia and the Pacific between 2000 and 2016, they fell by just 18% in West and Central Africa in the same time period. Despite a fall in percentage terms, the actual number of stunted children has increased by 4% in Eastern and Southern Africa and by 23% in West and Central Africa during this period. A further 14 million children under the age of 5 suffering from wasting - also known as acute malnutrition - with 4.1 million children categorised as 'severely wasted'.
