In the poorest communities around the world, women and children die because no one has told them how to stay healthy. Life-saving information passes them by because they cannot read. Often they speak a language that health educators don't know, so vital information is left unsaid.
But the knowlegde these women and children need is simple and easily passed on - and our founder, Helen Taylor Thompson, found the way to do it. Thare Machi Education spreads basic health education throughout the poorest communities of the world through DVDs and online downloadable lessons.
At Thare Machi Education we produce lessons on topics such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, TB, diarrhoea, safe water as well as childcare, sex education and the dangers of human trafficking. The lessons focus on key facts and are interactive, proving highly successful. We translate the lessons into community languages, produce the DVDs and distribute them free of charge to partner agencies. Our newest lesson, Avoiding Ebola, is being used by the Ministry of Health in Sierra Leone among others, where it is playing a vital role in the fight against the virus.
Our partners are community groups, street children's societies, health clinics, churches, schools and individuals. They don't need classrooms or training - the DVDs are easy to use and a portable player can be charged from a car battery. Our staff don't need to be there - just the discs and a machine to play them. For those with an internet connection, the lessons can be played on a laptop or even a mobile phone.
We have a total of 32 lesson titles, and each one is available in up to 50 languages.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
