African Adventures Foundation is a registered charity in England & Wales (1153361), which exists to provide regular, long-term support to our partner projects in Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar. These projects are non-governmental organisations (NGOs) which provide opportunity to deprived communities, and underfunded and overcrowded government schools in clear need of support. Funds donated through the Foundation allow the projects to develop, through the supply of vital tools and resources that would be otherwise unavailable to them.
Thanks to generous support from African Adventures, the Foundation is able to commit 100% of all donations to our work in Africa, enabling even greater change to be made.
African Adventures Foundation needs your help to continue providing education, healthcare and nutrition in underprivileged areas of Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar.
A regular donation of as little as £5 a month is a great way to continue supporting the projects that you helped during your volunteer trip. As a thank you for your continued support, we will keep you updated with the latest Foundation news, and let you know about the exciting fundraising events that we have planned throughout the year.
African Adventures covers the core running costs of the charity and, thanks to this generous support, 100% of every penny raised by our Foundation will go to the projects we support – so you can rest assured that your donation will be making a positive impact where it is needed most.
