Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Human Aid Initiative to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Human Aid Initiative we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Human Aid Initiative to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Human Aid Initiative will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Human Aid Initiative receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Donation Total: £25.00

Goal: This programme aims to help the Islamic boarding school called ‘Pesantren’ become self-sufficient and provides them with the goat rearing skills they need as well as with their business plan strategy
Location: Kursiya Pesantren, Bogor, Indonesia
Duration of Program: 12 months
Total budget £5,500
First term: £3,300
Second term: £2,200

The Background
Kursiya Pesantren has been providing free education for orphans and underprivileged children since the establishment in 1991. There are currently 250 primary and 400 secondary school pupils enrolled. However, starting from 2018, the school has been having operational cost issues due to there being a higher demand for children who need support coming from communities surrounding areas. As a result, the school started introducing a small fee to the pupils. This narrows pesantren’s outreach in providing education for the community. The school committees had to come up with an alternative solution to prevent the fees from increasing over time. In 2017, they started to develop a Pesantren-based business.

Proposed Solution
A system called ‘One Pesantren One Product’ focuses on trying to solve this issue. The Pesantren is encouraged to have visible products that can be marketed to meet their operational needs. Products of interest are integrated farming products.

Data obtained by the Ministry of Agriculture shows that Indonesia currently does not meet the national demands of meat domestically. With this fact, Kursiya Pesantren has initiated a couple of business units, one of which is goat rearing.

The goat and sheep rearing business has good prospects in this region. The need for Qurbani animals increases every year by 10%. Aqiqah business has also grown by 10-12%, which further adds to the need for meat.

Having this programme will help the Pesantren to keep up with its operational costs as well as teach pupils new skills as they will also get involved in looking after the livestock.

Our Response
With your support, Human Aid Initiatives has started to launch the ‘Goat Rearing Pilot Project’ as part of our Community Empowerment Project (CEP). We reach out a helping hand to pesantren’s like Kursiya, to achieve their goal and offer a solution for the challenge they have. Our twelve months of activity frameworks include:
–    To increase the capacity of administrators in goat rearing management such as coaching for animal feed production, livestock hygiene and pens, waste treatment and disease management
–    To provide the infrastructure of goat rearings such as the distribution of 20 baby goats and their food
–    To increase the capacity of management by providing them with a business plan workshop, financial management coaching and mentoring
