Founded in 1998, by Tony and Margaret Howson, Equipe started by works in East Africa and The Philippines, sponsoring the education of primary school children and providing aid for them.
Equipe is different to other charities, in that very little of its fundraising costs go on anything but the projects that it serves. The United Kingdom offers a Gift Aid option for all UK tax payers, and administration costs, advertising, staff and building expenses come from this and donations made for these purposes.
This means that all profits, after the book sellers take off their fees, will go directly to where it is needed most. No one project has been picked over another, and will be divided as necessary between them all.
