About BuildAid

BuildAid is a small UK charity that delivers overseas construction projects for people in need. Our founding Trustees are Chartered Building Surveyors by profession, with over 40 years’ construction experience gained across four continents. We specialise in community buildings such as schools, shelters and hospitals and we only ever use local labour and local materials to keep costs down and build the capacity of the local community. Since our inception in 2005, we have worked in Nepal, Sri Lanka and Haiti, with ongoing projects in Kenya and the Philippines.


In the next 2 years, we're aiming to build:


  • 10 classrooms for schools in isolated areas, where there is nowhere else to go for an education
  • 10 dormitories for schools in isolated areas, where children must walk for hours everyday to get to school and home again
  • A large mother and baby clinic providing pre and post natal care, infant immunisation and community education around nutrition, sanitation and disease prevention
  • A child oncology unit for inpatient and outpatient cancer care in Malawi
  • 4+ shelters for young girls rescued from online sexual exploitation and in crisis
  • 4+ Sand Dams, turning arid river beds into irrigated farm land


The UK government will not help any charities with overseas construction projects. We do all of our own fundraising and desperately need your help and support.

Jen's Shelter Project Fund

Warwick Estates hopes to raise enough money to construct a 'cottage' to serve as a safe haven for girls rescued from child sex abuse. This vital children's shelter provides permanent refuge homes and professional trauma-informed care for female victims of online child sex abuse. This informative video from Kate Muir of BuildAid explains a little bit more about BuildAid and the project!! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Yj9HYo5txK6YK8EptVCMq9rOOmKl-CCs/view?usp=sharingTo reiterate, for those of you that are not aware of the extent of the abuse issues in the Philippines below is a link to the Stacey Dooley documentary available on iPlayer. I must warn you,
THIS IS NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED.
It is a distressing documentary, uncovering the horrors of sexual exploitation and torture of children, normally by family members, via webcam broadcast.https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p051xhnz/stacey-dooley-investigates-mums-selling-their-kids-for-sex The documentary does however highlight how important it is that the children coming out of these horrific situations have a safe and caring place to live and receive dedicated psychological, emotional and educational support. Our cottage will house 10 of the worst affected children with the 24 hour a day care of two 'house parents', giving them a chance at a childhood and the opportunity of a brighter future.
My individual target within the company is £200 and I appreciate every little that gets donated.

Tim's Triathlon

Für Deutsch bitte etwas runter scrollen!
I am participating in an Olympic length Triathlon in order to fundraise for the construction of classrooms and dormitories at Belgrove Primary School in Kajiado South, rural Kenya.
The London Triathlon is the largest and most prestigious triathlon in the City. The Olympic length race consists of 1.5km swimming, 40km cycling, and 10k running. If we have done business together before, or if you know me personally, you most likely want to see me in complete pain, exhaustion, and perhaps even failure. This is the time to donate to make this a reality.
I will give my best effort to finish the triathlon in under 3 hours. I will accept bets against it so I dare you to place your bets via this fundraising page!
Cheers!Tim

Hallo zusammen,
ich nehme dieses Jahr an einem olympischen Triathlon in London teil, um Geld für Klassenräume in einer sehr entlegenen Gegend in Kenia zu sammeln, genauer gesagt für die Belgrove Grundschule im Süden Kajiado.
Der Londoner Triathlon ist der größte und bekannteste Triathlon Londons (2015 sogar in der Welt), mit einer kompletten Länge von 1.5km Schwimmen, 40km Radfahren und 10km Laufen.Wenn wir uns geschäftlich kennen oder persönlich, dann werdet Ihr es wahrscheinlich genießen mich vollkommen erschöpft, voller Schmerzen, ja vielleicht sogar scheitern zu sehen.
Jetzt ist der richtige Zeitpunkt gekommen um gegen mich zu wetten und ich fordere jeden heraus, der das liest.
Ich werde mein bestes geben um den Triathlon in unter 3 Stunden zu absolvieren und freue mich sehr über jede Wette gegen mich oder Spende um mich anzuspornen.
Alle Einnahmen gehen direkt an die Schule in Kenia. Also seid nicht geizig und tut was Gutes dieses Jahr!
Grüße!Tim

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
