WELCOME

DATUM is a small international development charity based in London. Since 2009 we have worked across Asia and Africa to help children gain access to education, healthcare and sanitation.

DATUM is dedicated to building a better future for children in the poorest areas of the world by giving the skills and finances required to construct schools, clinics and ensure that all are provided with clean water and toilets. We have successfully completed projects in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India, Guinea, Senegal, Tanzania, and Malawi.

This web site illustrates some of these projects and some of the amazing children we have met along the way.
