The Walk Centre

The Walk Centre, African Adventures’ flagship project, is an inspiring place where children are provided with an education and nourishment, both of which would be unattainable to many without its existence. The Walk Centre is full of passionate and supportive staff who want to give children opportunity in life. But they need your support…

The Walk Centre is a pre-primary and primary school located in Nakuru, which was set up in 2005. The schools educate 230 children between the ages of 4-14.

Founders Alex and Patricia Maina recognised the extreme cases of poverty in their local area, where many children live and work on the dumpsite looking for food and valuable materials which their families can sell in order to survive. Alex and Patricia committed to providing a safe place where the children could play and learn. What started with songs, games and food for 60 children soon became a school for 120 students.

In 2007, Dan Mew (African Adventures Director) volunteered at The Walk Centre and met Alex. He decided he wanted to spend his professional life providing support to projects like The Walk Centre, and a partnership was formed. Two years later, African Adventures was born.

In 2015, Alex had a vision to build a primary school, allowing children to continue their education past the age of eight. Various stakeholders teamed up to fundraise and make this dream a reality. In two years, £82,000 was raised and The Walk Centre Primary School was constructed, complete with ten classrooms and the provisions to educate hundreds of young Kenyans for years to come.

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.
