Here are some of synopsis of IAHV’s Achievements for the financial year 2012 – 2013, for detailed report please download the IAHV UK Annual Report 2012-13.pdf
Net Income of £58,485 including £26,226 from the 10k Fun Run 2012
First a big THANK YOU to all of our many individual donors, and fundraisers. Our Income increased significantly this year particularly thanks to the fantastic efforts of the Organising Team and 108 runners who took part in the July 2012 Annual 10k London Fun Run, which raised £26,226 including sponsorship of £3,000 from Lyca Mobile, £1,000 from Ekavat Solutions for the iAge and £1,000 from Matta’s International Foods.
£21,000 to educate children
We continued our long-term support to provide school education for rural, slum and tribal children in India, who would not otherwise receive an education. This Gift a Smile programme supports over 200 schools which educate 24,000 pupils. Since 2004, IAHV UK has raised over £130,000 to provide value based education to poor or disadvantaged children.
New Peacebuilding Project
Led by Dr Katrien Hertog, the IAHV Peacebuilding project was set up in March 2013, with the aim of identifying, articulating and developing IAHV’s unique expertise and approach to peacebuilding. IAHV’s approach places the human being at the centre of peacebuilding. Work is ongoing for a partner orgnanisation for us to work with.
In March 2013, IAHV UK was invited to run a series of 7 Prison SMART course at Thameside Prison. Results showed that 71% felt more contented and 65% improvement in controlling temper and 63% better able to cope.
70% reduction in Stress achieved by Manage Your Mind
Free weekly workshops have been provided by IAHV since January 2013 in Medway, Kent to support those affected by Stress, Anxiety and Depression. MYM has supported an average of 7 new people per week during 2013, and for those who completed the entire workshop levels of Depression and Anxiety have dropped by an overwhelming 70%.
£32,000 raised for Disaster Relief in Uttarakhand, Northern India
The rugged beauty of the Himalayan mountains turned suddenly to a scene of raging torrents and devastating landslides in June 2013 when nearly 4 times normal monsoon rains hit Uttarakhand in Northern India. Over 3,000,000 people were reported to be affected.
By providing opportunities for voluntary, unpaid service, IAHV can make every £1 go much further than larger organisations which pay salaries and run premises. We don’t pay street fund-raisers. Through the generosity of donors who cover what little expenses we do have, we guaranteed that 100% of donations to a specific project goes directly to that project to help those in need.
If you use GiftAid, we can increase the value of your gift by about 25p for every pound you give.
