Change 1’s Life Textile Program

In poverty stricken countries clothes is beyond a lot peoples’ means. Our clothing project aims at ensuring people have the right clothing all year round. This will prevent people from illness due to inadequate protection from weather conditions, particularly during the winter. This project distributes clothes to homeless people, orphanages, schools, underprivileged families, street vendors, rural areas, etc.

To date, we have distrubted more than 100,000kg of chothes througout Angola and Namibia thanks to our regular donors and the house-to-house collection we carry out around the United Kingdom. Our clothing project is ongoing project, and runs on clothing donations from all over the world.

If you wish to support our textile project, please feel free to send your unwated clothes to our address which you can find on the Contact Us page. Alternatively, you can also contact us by phone, email or social media to arrange pick up.
