IGNITE Youth Organisation is a non-profit organisation and thus we depend upon the generous gifts and donations from organisations, companies, churches and individuals to continue the work we are doing with young people. We accept both monetary and in-kind gifts and donations. You can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with details about your gift and donation, and the Program you want to support.
For cash donations, once you send us an email with the details of the amount you would like to donate, we will send you our bank details. We are currently still working on our online payment system for donations.
For in-kind gifts, we can always use:
- good quality used clothes for babies/children/teenagers/young adults (male and female)
- items of sports equipment (deflated footballs, volleyballs, cricket bats, football shirts)
- toiletries for young women (soap, deodorant, body lotion, sanitary towels, toothbrushes)
- items of office stationary (paper, pens, exercise books/notebooks, staplers, computers, chairs, desks)
- items of band equipment (mics, cables, speakers, music instruments)
Thank you very much! We look forward to receiving your email! Your gift and donation will go a long way in helping us reach more youth, and impact more communities and societies.
This is a hands-on expression of love by young people to their community. Through the use of resources such as school supplies, food and clothing, youth have been able to volunteer and give back to their communities. The IGNITE Hope Program helps communities by donating to street kids and orphanages and thus meeting practical needs of the community through volunteerism. The IGNITE Hope yearly initiatives provide food and new and gently used clothing to underprivileged individuals every Easter and Christmas. We also teach young people the importance of societal awareness such as human trafficking, child abuse, forced marriages and so on. We desire to equip young people to be well versed not only in formal education but also be aware of social injustices.
We create spaces for youth to express their opinions — and listen to them. Rather than simply teaching them about societal issues, it's vital to engage youths as social actors with their own views and contributions. In practice, this can be done by encouraging both youth and adults — parents, teachers, nonprofit workers, or community and religious leaders — to work together and offer young people a chance to formulate their opinions.
Increasing young people's global awareness can make a big difference in the way they approach daily life. When they are more aware of the struggles other people are facing, it puts their daily stresses in a new perspective. This shift in point of view can make young people more grateful as well as give them a more positive outlook. Whatever we do, we teach youth about empathy. We give them a sense of empowerment and show them that even though the world is far from perfect, there are still things they can do to improve it. Give to support our IGNITE Hope Program so you can also help young people to be more connected to the world around them and make a positive impact on their communities.
