- What is The Big Give?
The Big Give Christmas Challenge is the UK’s largest match funding campaign, which runs from 1-8 December in 2020. AzuKo has been allocated a ‘matching pot’ to double donations made by our supporters. This means there’s no better time to donate to us. One donation, twice the impact.
- What impact will my donation have?
Your donation will help us design and build a playground for underprivileged children in Sundarban village, northwest Bangladesh.
All children have the right to play and to enjoy their childhood. Research shows that play is crucial for children’s development, and their longterm success. It builds confidence, creativity, communication and critical thinking skills. It contributes to greater achievement at school and higher rates of employment and salaries after graduation.
But for those living in poverty in Bangladesh, play feels like a luxury. Many children spend time away from school, helping in the home or fields, rather than playing. There are few play facilities in schools and it’s not integrated into the curriculum. We believe play is not a ‘nice to have’, it’s a child’s basic right. Your investment in this playground will spark opportunities for generations of children.
- What are the Designers and Architects paid?
Nothing – they’re all generously donating their time to help raise money for AzuKo!
- I’ve booked a consultation, but now can’t attend. Can I get a refund?
Sessions are booked with a donation to AzuKo. Unfortunately, we can’t refund donations.
