Other Ways to Help

Besides making a one-off gift to World Villages for Children here are eight more ways that you can help

Your donations make our work possible. Without the support of loyal friends like you, we could not consistently offer a roof, three meals a day, the necessary care and comprehensive education to the more than 20,000 children who have been entrusted to us. Without you, our children could not escape poverty and would have no hope in the future.


Here are other ways that you can help our children:

  • Support our mission with a regular direct debit and become a Guardian Angel of the Children 
    For more information and/or to sign up, please visit this page. Even better why not gift aid your donation? 

  • You can donate via Paypal

  • Talk about World Villages for Children to your friends and family
    If our work is of interest to them, you may suggest that they support our children through a contribution.

  • Gifts during celebrations and in honour of a loved one
    At family celebrations or special events such as birthdays or weddings, ask your guests or your family to make a donation to World Villages for Children in lieu of a traditional gift.

  • Gifts in Memory
    Holding a collection at a funeral or memorial service, perhaps in lieu of flowers, is a special way for friends and family to remember your loved one. We also have a tribute page at MuchLoved that you can use to leave a tribute online.
  • Payroll Giving
    Payroll giving, also known as Workplace Giving or Give as you Earn, provides employees with an easy way to regularly donate to World Villages for Children straight from your salary before tax is deducted. This means that if you pledge to give £10 a month, it will only cost you £8 on a basic rate tax, £6 on 40% tax, or £5 on 50% tax. 
  • Specific activities during the year
    Remember our children and share your blessings with the most needy during special times of the year like Easter, Christmas, or Lent. Specific fundraising activities can also be organised at such times in your family, friends, sports group or school for your children or grandchildren.

  • Grants to support a specific project
    In some of our Villages in the Philippines, Latin America and especially Tanzania, we are still in need of new books and training materials. If you are interested in a making a special donation, please contact us at enquiries@worldvillages.org.uk or call on 0207 629 3050.

  • Remember the children of World Villages for Children and the Sisters of Mary in your prayers
    Your prayers are essential to the continued success of our mission.

  • Remember World Villages for Children in your Will. For more details on how to leave World Villages for Children a legacy gift visit this page, download the form here or call our supporter team on 0207 629 3050.
