Donations to RPC now tax deductible

The really good news for us right now is that our affiliate organisation, the KYEEMA Foundation, has been granted DGR (deductible gift recipient) status. This means that donations to KYEEMA are tax deductible in Australia. KYEEMA can thus receive tax deductible donations on behalf of RPC and forward them on to us. We are absolutely delighted that KYEEMA has offered us this means of support. We've modified our web site to show prospective donors how to support us.

You probably don't know that we have had significant 'informal' support so far, almost $3,000 for our programs and training support over the past year, from about 6-7 individuals. That's apart from the $22,000 from GRM International for the Communities 1st project in Ntchisi. We're doing some good work I reckon, so let's hope it grows.

We've just helped to coordinate a very significant meeting on the future viability of the I-2 Newcastle disease vaccine production unit at Central Veterinary Laboratory. We've also been very lucky to have received a volunteer, Mr Luka Tumbwe, who has long experience in the small scale poultry sector in Malawi. Both these stories are in the latest news items on our web site so I won't belabour them here.
