Computers for Kenya

We’re looking to raise money so that African Adventures Foundation can transport the computers from Mombasa to Nakuru, hire a local technician to set up the computers and purchase any extra equipment.

We Need Your Help

We’re looking to raise money so that African Adventures Foundation can:

  • £450 – Hire a truck to transport the computers from Mombasa to Nakuru.
  • £200 – Hire a Nakuru-based technician for one month to set up computers at our partner projects.
  • £200 – Purchase any extra equipment, such as keyboards and mice.
  • £650 – Purchase any monitors to complete the sets (approx. £50 per monitor).

This summer, African Adventures Foundation is in a fortunate position to have secured space on a shipment destined for Kenya. We have been collecting computers, laptops, printers, overhead projectors, microscopes and other suitable technology for our partner projects.

We work with schools in deprived communities of Nakuru, where access to technology is limited. These schools are in desperate need of equipment such as laptops and computers to help give children a better quality of education.

Thanks to some very generous donations towards our campaign, we’ve managed to secure places for almost one hundred computers and laptops, as well as other technological hardware, to be shipped to Kenya in June. To accompany this, and to make sure that the Computers for Kenya campaign brings about positive change to as many young people as possible, we’re running an additional fundraising campaign.

This is where you come in. With your help, we can ensure that every non-governmental project in Kenya with whom we are partnered will receive several PCs in full, working condition.

Please, if you can help us, any donation will make a massive difference and we guarantee that 100% of all donations goes to the projects in Africa.

Gift Aid Declaration

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.

“By providing our partner projects in Kenya with computers, children will be able to learn basic IT skills that we take for granted in the UK. We will also then be a significant step closer to being able to provide internet access at the projects to help connect students with the wider world, beyond volunteers.”

Dan Mew

Trustee, African Adventures Foundation
“We know from several years of visiting schools in Nakuru that what many of the young people out there need are the tools with which to apply their very sharp brains. We hope this will go some way towards developing this and who knows perhaps we can have Springfield pupils linking and sharing with pupils from schools in Nakuru in the future.”

“These donations will mean that students who currently learn IT skills with a blackboard and chalk will have access to computers, enabling them to develop invaluable IT skills that will increase their opportunities for further study and employment.”
