There are many ways to fundraise for TESS, from sponsored events to cake sales and from donating your birthday presents to holding a car-boot sale. We can support you by supplying marketing materials and cheering you on.

We are really grateful to our supporters who champion TESS in their groups and networks and are proud to include church groups, schools and businesses in our ranks.

School Starter Kit

Remember your first day at school? Many of our students board and without some basic supplies, such as a matress and their own cooking and washing utensils, they are not allowed to attend school. Our School Starter kits supply everything our students need to make a fantastic start to their secondary education.

Purchase a School Starter Kit for one of our students for a donation of £25


Girls Kit

Growing up isn’t easy! Our girls kits provide personal hygiene supplies to our girls. Lack of access to hygiene products is embarrassing, inconvenient and in some cases results in girls returning home every month - or simply not attending school. Our Girls Kits keep our girls in school all year round.

Purchase a Girls Kit for one of our students for a donation of £10.


School bag and Stationery Kit

Who doesn’t love a new school bag and pencil case? Our School Bags and stationery kits keep our students looking smart and ready to learn!
