Net Income 2014/2015 of £106,273

A big THANK YOU to all of our many individual donors, and fundraisers. As always, the largest part of our fundraising was the 10k London Fun Run. Our thanks go to the donors, runners and the Organising Team. The 108 runners who took part in the July 2014 Annual 10k London Fun Run raised over £25,000 before costs, plus there was further generous sponsorship of £1,000 from Ekavat Solutions and £1,500 from Matta’s International Foods.

£22,030 to educate children

Despite the economic progress of India, there are large numbers of children who would not get an education without our support. We continued our long-term support to provide school education for rural, slum and tribal children in India. This Gift a Smile programme supports over 400 schools which educate over 43,000 pupils for around £100 each per year.

Prison SMART

Prisons are amongst the most stressful places on earth. Since 2013-14, IAHV UK delivered a paid programme of Prison SMART courses at Thameside Prison, which have been extremely well received both by inmates and staff.

Breathe SMART

Some good progress was made with this complementary programme to PrisonSMART supporting offenders and those on the fringes of society, within the community.


Led by Dr Katrien Hertog, our Peacebulding team completed its first phase of development and training and conducted a successful pilot project in Lebanon to prevent and transform extremism. It also participated in a scoping project in Iraq, both projects in partnership with other organisations. This team also raised over £28,000 in 2014/15 to fund this work
