CONTESA being a small charity is very happy to work with or assist partner organisations. CONTESA trustees have defined criteria which partner organisations have to accept and sign up to before CONTESA will fund or assist their programmes. CONTESA prefers to work with organisations which have a community self help structure in place. The main partner organisations that CONTESA works with are:
6. GreenCare Zambia (information being revised & will be uploaded shortly)
Please click on the organisation above for a brief description of the organisations structure, work and CONTESA involvement & support.
CONTESA has also successfully completed several collaborations, these include Rotary International (Rotary UK – Cleethorpes), Rotary - USA and Rotary Lusaka – Zambia.
CONTESA commends Music for Africa (charity no 1102129 www.musicforafrica.org.uk)
CONTESA admires Tom Toomey and his great work in South Africa through his charity Music for Africa. Tom has sadly has had to shelve his great annual ’Feeding the Spirit’ concerts at Montecute House, as Tom says ‘It will not be happening in the foreseeable future as MFA are now concentrating their efforts on raising funds through less financially risky means. I personally have had an amazing time organising the concerts over the years and have met and worked with some of the most fantastic people I could ever wish to meet. Of this I am deeply thankful and I would like to take the opportunity in saying a huge thanks from the heart, I couldn’t have done it without all of you! (and you all know who you are!).
Tom generously donated his services and great music to the 2007 CONTESA Charity Ball
