How you can help

Dramatic Need is an entirely non-profit outfit. We depend solely on donations from kind people such as yourself to keep us ticking over.The money that you donate today will help keep us in teaching supplies such as paints, books, musical instruments, crayons, pencils, paper, arts supplies and computers.


It will help us provide transport in rural communities so that the kids can get to school every day and the volunteers can get in to teach them.


It will help us reach more schools and to contribute to the farmsteads whom have volunteered to host us. The money that you donate will make a very real difference to some pretty special kids.


We have a few different ways that you can make your contribution, so please give generously (and don't forget that with Gift Aid your donation goes even further).
