Allan Saldanha, 41, on how he achieved financial security and now hopes to help save lives
Name: Allan Saldanha
Occupation: Audit manager
Income: £125,000 (salary plus investment income)
From a young age I’ve believed in giving to charity. Visiting family in India and witnessing the poverty there encouraged me to donate to charities active in developing countries. At work I organised annual matching fundraisers for developing world charities such as WaterAid and Sightsavers and would offer to triple my colleagues’ donations. I knew that I could and should donate more, but always felt like I lacked the knowledge about the impact of my donations.
