African Adventures Foundation

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.

Regular Giving

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.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows African Adventures Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to African Adventures Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like African Adventures Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that African Adventures Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When African Adventures Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

In the 2015 financial year, the Foundation raised £60,000 and sent over 100 grants to projects in Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar!

The Big Bike Ride – Day Eleven – Chalinze to Dar Es Salaam

Despite probably needing a good sleep more than at any point in the ride so far, we only managed a few hours and got up at 5:30am, ready to get on the road at 6.30am.

The Big Bike Ride – Day Ten – Mgata to Chalinze

Our penultimate day arrived and, whilst we’d be guilty of massaging of our own self-importance for thinking it was real, it felt like news of The Big Bike Ride had spread through the small towns and villages...

The Big Bike Ride – Day Nine – Mombo to Mgata

At 78 miles, today proved to be the most physically demanding yet. The first half was similar to yesterday – long, flat roads made worse by strong winds – and the second half drew hills that we hadn’t yet seen...

The Big Bike Ride – Day Eight – Same to Mombo

If yesterday’s ride was green and hilly, today posed a different challenge. We left Same and headed further south with little around us but vast, open savannahs and just a couple of villages along the way.

The Big Bike Ride – Day Seven – Moshi to Same

Everyone was fresh and full of energy after a good night’s sleep and a relatively easy ride, so we got started slightly earlier and made excellent time on the first 25 miles.

The Big Bike Ride – Day Six – Arusha to Moshi

The supposed ‘easy’ ride of the event – 50 miles and an overall descent of around 1500ft – came at a welcome time, following yesterday’s long, windy ride, which took a lot out of the team.

The Big Bike Ride
The Big Bike Ride – Day Five – Namanga to Arusha

We kicked off early at 8am and made the short three-mile cycle to the border, where we had to pass through Kenya’s immigration to exit and separately Tanzania’s to enter.

The Big Bike Ride
The Big Bike Ride – Day Four – Kajiado to Namanga

Kajiado was new territory for me – most of my experience and knowledge of Kenya is in the Rift Valley - so the team and I were excited to head off from the last major town before the border.
