Bursaries Fund Appeal

We are absolutely delighted to be able to tell you that we reached our Big Give Christmas Challenge 2016 target of £16,000, thanks to the generosity of our supporters.  That total will be boosted even further when Gift Aid is added on top of eligible donations too, so thank you so much to all of you who have donated.

If you were not able to donate during the Big Give, but would still like to contribute to our Bursaries Fund, we would be very grateful indeed.

Your support means that more prisoners of conscience in exile will be able to convert their professional qualifications to UK standards so they can resume their careers, allowing them to get back on their feet and support themselves and their families again.

One of our bursary holders told us:

“I have just received your letter with regards to my post-graduate funding. I don’t know what to say or how to thank you. I didn’t believe it at first. I feel like I won the lottery. I woke up with a smile on my face today. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support and help you gave me with my application and your guidance. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity and your kindness. I am on cloud nine at the moment.  Many many thanks!!”
