You can also help us raise funds in other ways…

Get sponsored: Into hiking, biking or skydiving? If you would like to take on a sponsored challenge on behalf of The Congo Tree, we would love to hear from you! And if you have a particularly daring / interesting / creative idea, we might even join you… (anything to distract Heidi from planning her Birmingham-DRC ‘Long Way Down’ style motorbike adventure!)

Projects: We are looking for people to sponsor our social action and creative enterprise projects, which will vary in cost – please let us know if you would like to find out about financially supporting a community project or business idea.

Gifts in kind: We occasionally need resources such as stationary, training materials and computer equipment. Please contact us if you think you can help in this way.
