Latest news from TUFA

The Chātā Newsletter - June, 2018

Edition One



Namaste and greetings from the team at The Umbrella Foundation Australia or to keep it short TUFA!  It's about time we established our quarterly newsletter and if your wondering what the word  'Chata''s the Nepali word for 'Umbrella'.  Welcome to The Chata Newsletter No.1

For those of you who are not familiar with us, we are a registered Australian charity, established in May, 2013.  Our focus  is supporting trafficked and vulnerable children, their families & communities in Nepal through education support and health & hygiene programs.  TUFA also supports our Australian sister charity, Centre for Hope, a Newcastle NSW charity working with vulnerable Aussie children in our communities. 

Knowing how many charities are out there and how bombarded we are with donation requests it is important to us that we are fully transparent about our project work and where your hard earned money goes.  Our board and committee members are ALL volunteers with 100% of ALL donations going to the selected programs....a big plus is YOUR DONATION IS TAX DEDUCTABLE.

Another important note is our admin costs are minimal and average around $500 per year, this money comes from a small percentage retained from raffles held throughout the year. We are always happy to be contacted if you have any questions or if you want to be part of our small Aussie charity.

Enough about us and more about what we do!
