Who Are We?

We are sisters Janet and Paulinah Eboh-Sampson, we grew up in Lozells, Birmingham (West Midlands). Lozells is an area often regarded for high levels of crime, gang violence, unemployment and deprivation. This is the background to our story. Despite the limited opportunities we had and some of the social challenges that we faced growing up, we have used our childhood experiences to improve our personal circumstances. Individually, we have pursued our passions and realised our personal dreams. Janet works as an event manager and runs her own company Lotus Event Management. Whilst Paulinah has gone on to launch her own clothing range Dolls of Decadence, which has been hugely successful -receiving numerous awards and featuring in various publications including Vogue Italia.

Our Ethos

We set up the DoNation UK Project to provide a local platform that can affect change and address some of the issues faced by our community. We are proud of our city and our personal journeys so far. As part of this collaborative partnership we want to empower those who are disadvantaged by enabling them to build up the confidence to pursue their personal goals and dreams. We want to work with charities and other organisations to support local causes within the West Midlands and surrounding areas. This is our way of giving something back to others and building up our local community. 

“May we serve our community with truth, honesty and intergrity, so help us God- in You we trust”
