The Trustees of WLA were determined when the academy was set up to ensure that other individuals and organisations would be blessed through it. This is the heart of WLAid: to offer support to communities who need that extra bit of help to fund their projects. To ensure this is done, WLA gives 10% of its annual income away to other projects/causes, with the only qualification being that they do not benefit WLA.
If you run a community group, are looking for funding for training, or support for a project you are running or planning – then please do contact us. We would like you to tell us about your project and what you are trying to do, along with how much you are looking for - typically WLA gives gifts in the region of anything from £50 to £500 depending on the need. Our trustees consider requests all year round. Projects supported up to now include:
Food hygiene training
Teaching English to Muslim women
