Who We Are
We’re Tristram & Tamara - together we co-founded the Taylor McCabe Institute (TMI). In a world full of divisiveness it's paramount that we, who have the opportunity to do so, reflect the potential for a positive future.
What We Do
In the rural village of Nemcinany, Slovakia - 5 hours away from the Ukrainian border, we've acquired two 90-foot long barns with the goal of transforming them into a shelter for refugees.
How You Help
Although we’ve got a stellar team and were initially self-funded, if you're willing to volunteer your time/skills or contribute financially, you can help us achieve our goal to offer a home to 40 people for at least two years.
YOU can be the change for a better tomorrow
On the 24th of February 2022, like the rest of the world, you learnt about the millions of lives forced to evacuate their homes due to the unprovoked Russian invasion of Ukraine. Over the weeks that followed, Europe faced its largest refugee crisis since WWII with over 5 millions civilians - mostly women and children - seeking safe shelter.
Doing nothing is NOT an option.
Your Support Matters
Every cent fundraised is geared towards the achievement of our project - a safe, warm and comfortable home for Ukrainian refugees. Local support has been organised including from the township of Nemcinany and now, YOU - from wherever you are in the world, you can contribute to building a better environment for women and kids of Ukraine who had to flee their homeland.
