“Since launching the IOP for Africa campaign in December 2010, we have been able to raise sufficient funds to finance two new education projects, in Malawi and The Gambia. If we can reach our goal of raising a further £30000 this year, we would have enough to set up two new centres, as well as equip the ones in Malawi and The Gambia with additional resources to expand their reach. We are eager to do more, and we need your help to do it ”
