Every penny of your donation counts, whether large or small. 

When you donate to Open Hearts and Minds, you are helping fulfil a child’s dream of an education.  We are a small organisation so we keep our overhead costs to an absolute minimum.  This means that your money goes directly to help our children at school… they are so grateful for your support!
