How to support this project

Discover how you can help

It is time to build and launch a new vocational facility at the Msandaka school. You can give these children the tool box to start their own profession and create a decent living.


Our total project goal is to raise 227,000 euro.

And we’re already well advanced in this funding effort.

With your help we can reach it and - who knows - go beyond!



Make a donation!

Every euro counts… 3, 5, 10 or 20 euros are already great.

If you donate through the King Bauduoin Foundation, your donations of 40 euro or more are tax deductible in Belgium.

How? Donate to our specific ‘Build a dream’ project account for Msandaka (nr. 196/0360/00492), managed by the King Baudouin Foundation (IBAN: BE 10 0000 0000 0404). Your bank transfer to their account qualify for a tax reduction of 45% on the amount actually paid.

You can also donate through our GoFundMe fundraising campaign. For every euro donated through this online fundraising campaign page, Close the Gap will donate 1€ to Msandaka School for the Deaf.*

Make a gesture, and share a sign on social media

Sign language is the language of the Msandaka school.

So, we invite you to join in by saying ‘Make a gesture’ using signs.

Or you can share the international applause sign in social media (raise your hands and shake them!) and invite your friends to donate and join in!
