Private Donation: If the person pays UK tax we can get an extra 25% through tax authorities.  They have to sign a form or email us confirming tax status.

Company Donation: We provide a receipt and they can claim the corporation tax back.

If it is a direct transfer then it can be to our bank:

Account Name: Sanitation First
Bank: NatWest, Bexhill (branch)
Sort Code: 51 70 12
Account Number: 65690036
We can accept regular donations.  They just need fill in a form that can be found here:
As can the links to Paypal (which we are trying to phase out because of charges) and Make A Donation, which we are trying to encourage people to use.  At this time MAD does not accept regular payments (will do soon), but Paypal does.
Rule of thumb there is about 2.5% charge incurred.  Higher if it is an AMEX card.

Ekam USA Youth Ambassador

On June 2nd, 2018, a day that dawned to be gloomy and rainy, the youth ambassadors of Ekam, Charlotte, kicked off their maiden venture  with the goal of raising funds for their adopted village Sorpanandal in Thiruvannamalai district. The three kids, Nirmal Rajendran, Soorya Vasan and Varun Murlidhar had set a modest target. They aimed to raise at least 50$ that day. The money would go towards meeting the needs of the Anganwadi at Sorpanandal. The venue chosen was a health seminar that dealt with the growing epidemic of obesity and was organized by the Tamil Sangam of Charlotte at Gandhi Bhavan. The kids made a beautiful poster which showcased the work done by the Ekam foundation in India. They set up a stall and sold glasses of mango milkshake and buttermilk, vegan and gluten free cookies for a modest price of 1$ per glass/ pack of cookies  to the seminar attendees.
