Donate

Since I am not currently in Ethiopia and so cannot acknowledge receipt of parcels, I have temporarily removed all advice about sending gifts to Empress Mentewab School.

There are three ways to make a financial donation to the school:

(1) Paypal
(2) Transfer to Bank Account – UK
(3) Transfer to Bank Account – Ethiopia

Note that there is no tax-efficient way to send funds to the school. Gift Aid does not apply because Empress Mentewab School is not a registered charity in the UK.


(1) Paypal

To pay by Paypal, please first Contact me.


(2) Transfer to Bank Account – UK

Please use the following bank details:

Bank: Bank of Scotland
Account Number: 16269361
Sort Code: 80-22-60
Account Name: Empress Mentewab School
BIC: BOFSGBS1SDP
IBAN: GB88 BOFS 8022 6016 2693 61

If you Contact me to let me know that you have made a transfer, I can check and confirm that the funds arrived safely.

Please note that while I am in Scotland I have no way of confirming that funds have arrived in the school’s Commercial Bank of Ethiopia account. However, please do Contact me to let me know that you have made a transfer, and when I do return to Ethiopia, I shall check and confirm that the funds arrived safely.
