Tamwed welcomes standing orders from anyone kind enough to consider this as a way of supporting our projects on a regular basis. Funds go direct to India and the value of donations is multiplied many times over when changed from pounds to rupees to pay for seeds, plants, medicine or other items. A standing order form can be sent on request.

Tamwed (Tamil Nadu/West Devon) was set up to build links between communities in South India and the South West of England and support projects that benefit the most needy in Tamil Nadu. The organisation's founders have long standing professional and personal links with community groups in the area and have collaborated on projects over many years.
We are a voluntary organisation that is entirely dependent on the goodwill of donors to support our projects which are delivered through NGOs and developed in response to the needs of the most marginalised and isolated rural communities.
Our partner NGOs are CRUSADE, GAWDESY and the ISLAND Trust which work with Scheduled Caste and Tribal communities. Respecting Gandhian principles, much of their work centres around the welfare of women through the formation and support of Women's Self Help Groups and micro-credit systems. Tamwed's Co-ordinator in Tamil Nadu monitors our projects.
We currently support community health, herbal medicine and climate change projects. More about our work can be found on links to the relevant project.
We hope you enjoy your visit here and feel inspired to help. Please follow the link to our donations form. If you are able to support us in any way please get in touch.
