Give an Hour is an easy way to give what might seem like a relatively small donation, one hour of your pay, to make a big difference.
Investing just one hour of your own salary could help vulnerable women in the Former Soviet Union to generate their own income through WJR's Livelihood Development Programme. This ground-breaking new initiative aims to provide skills and training for unemployed or very low income mothers to gain work and break the cycle of poverty. By providing our beneficiaries with the skills needed to find and sustain a job, our clients will be able to provide more, both financially and educationally, for their children who will in turn grow up to lead fulfilling lives, independent of WJR.
All you need to do is check your hourly rate of pay on the calculator below and sign up to Give an Hour.

The calculations are based on the average worker, who is entitled to the basic tax free allowance of £7475. They are aged between 18-65. No disability, benefits or other adjustments are factored in, and so this is an ESTIMATE only.
The number of hours worker per year has been calculated as 2016 hours. The calculations is:
52 weeks * 5 days a week = 260 days
260 days - 8 bank holidays = 252 days
252 days * 8 hours per day = 2016 hours
If a person earns up to £7475, they pay 0% tax.
If a person earns up to £35000, they pay 0% on the first £7475 and then 20% on the remaining amount.
If a person earns up to £150000, they pay 0% on the first £7475, 20% on the next £27525 and then 40% on the remaining amount
If a person earns over £150000, the pay 0% on the first £7475, 20% on the next £27525, 40% on the next £115000 and then 50% on the remaining.
For every £2 that you earn over £10000, your free personal allowance (0%) decreases by £1.
All of these values will change for the next tax year.
The tax calculation was worked out from the information on the following page:
Tax is subtracted from gross salary to calculate net salary, and divided by total number of work hours to determine the net hourly rate.
