Why Make a Monthly Donation

Our main goal is to deliver long-term educational programmes that create lasting change for Saharawi refugee children living in the camps. When you set up a regular donation to Sandblast, you become part of that long-term work to improve the futures of these forgotten refugee children.

Where Your Money Goes

We rely on the generous support of individuals and organisations to keep our projects running. We have exciting plans in the pipeline, but to carry on and meet our goals we are raising funds to:

Continue to pay talented local Saharawi musicians to teach the children

Provide more teaching and music resources

Launch a summer programme teaching English and other creative workshops

Continue paying Saharawi refugee families to host our volunteers during their time in the camps

Cover expenses to organise a yearly day outing to a nearby oasis in the camps for the children to enjoy a picnic and swim

Pay yearly expenses associated with maintenance of the Desert Voicebox learning center

Pay salaries to our Desert Voicebox teaching staff which, in the face of the declining flow of humanitarian aid, vitally helps them meet their foods needs
