In 1997 Geoff & Cherrie Whittle left England with their children to set up and develop a wildlife charity in India. During their seven years in remote jungles they recognised the deplorable lack of education for marginalised and poor children in the wilderness areas of the sub-continent and so Cherrie started Patchwork Kids. The charity was later linked with a similar scheme started by Anna Evans who had worked with deprived children in Uganda.
The charity now not only sponsors children directly but aims to provide resources including building classrooms, supplying computers, training aids and staff salaries to ensure continuity and consistency for children’s’ formative years.
It’s Patchwork’s policy to commit over 90% of all donations to the cause for which they were intended, so you can rely on virtually every pound you donate having a lasting effect.
