About us and our aims
Where we’ve come from, what we’re doing and where we’re going – with your help
How we started
In 1997 Cherrie Whittle left England with her husband and two young 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 expanded with Anna Evans who was working with deprived children in Uganda
Cherrie is now based In England and Anna in Macedonia, which has enabled us to expand our operations into a third country.
The charity now not only sponsors children directly but provides resources including building classrooms and sanitary facilities, supplying computers, training aids and staff salaries to ensure continuity and consistency for children’s formative years.
Why Support Us?
Rest assured that 95% of all funds we receive are dedicated to the causes we support, with the absolute minimum being used for administration (costs, such as bank charges being applied by third parties and beyond our control)
