Becki’s story

Aug 2019 will see me head out to Moldova for the 15th time! The poorest country in Europe Moldova has only been independent from Soviet control since 1996 and is now struggling to find its way. Moldova is a beautiful country with beautiful people and it is a true honour to be able to work with them this summer. This year we will be installing indoor toilets in a small village school as well as delivering tons of aid to those in desperate need. If you had a penny or two to spare to this great cause I would be incredibly grateful and will bore you to death with pictures of our work on my return!!


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

Telecommunications Eastern European Challenge

TEECH was established in 1998 when a group, who worked together at BT near Ipswich, Suffolk took

up the challenge from a colleague to help repair two hospitals in Bucharest.


About fifty volunteers travelled to Bucharest under the banner of ‘BTL Aid to Romania’ in the August

that year and set about painting, plastering, providing lighting and generally making the hospitals

cleaner, safer and brighter places. After the success of this trip, and seeing the need to be more

structured, the volunteers organised themselves into a Registered Charity and hence TEECH

(Telecommunications Eastern European Challenge) was born, retaining the "telecom" connection in

its name.


Our vision is to improve the lives of those in Eastern Europe, who by no fault of their own are living in

conditions not seen in Western Europe since before the war.


TEECH aim to improve their lives by installing sanitary ware into schools, orphanages and elderly

residences where no indoor toilets exist. The charity also delivers aid, including clothing, toys and

shoes to the local communities. By sparking enthusiasm with the local people we hope to enable and

encourage self-help and enterprise to continue after volunteers have left.


All donations, of any size, are used towards projects or the annual Christmas trip to deliver shoebox

parcels by hand to villages and schools in Romania and Moldova.

Registered Charity Number: 1074765.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
