Nonprofit Overview

Mission: To help provide as many children as possible with a free education in the hope that this will allow a route out of poverty.

Results: The Foundation has raised over £500,000 since its inception in 2013, 100% of which has been sent to help our partner projects in Africa. The number of children attending the schools has increased by over 25% since we started working with them and the conditions in the schools have changed beyond measure. An education is so important and we are proud that we have helped many more children in Africa to have access to this.

Target demographics: Projects and school which exist to increase access to education.

Direct beneficiaries per year: We are partnered with 25 projects in Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar. We provide humanitarian and financial support to allow them to grow and develop. Overall, this touches the lives of over 20,000 children in Africa and the lives of 6000 volunteers who have travelled with us to date.

Geographic areas served: Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar

Programs: We provide financial aid to expedite the work of African Adventures (our business arm). We fund the construction and renovation of school facilities, feeding programmes and micro-finance initiatives.

The Foundation has been instrumental in helping to develop key social and educational projects in deprived areas of Africa. It has helped me to understand the different challenges that individuals face in other areas of the world whilst reminding me that I can make a considerable difference to other’s lives.

Great organisation doing amazing work. I know various people who have been on trips and never heard a bad word. I have also met people from the projects they work with and it's obvious they are in a better position now than they would have been without the support of African Adventures Foundation.

African Adventures has changed my life. It's as simple as that.

For sixth consecutive years, they have given me the opportunity to make a difference! With African Adventures I have made humanitarian trips to one of the poorest suburbs of Nakuru, Kenya to help schools in need of support and hundreds of children that would love nothing more than my time and attention, and a chance of a decent education.

For someone who has suffered with anxiety and grief for a number of years, these trips have made me realise on what I have at home in the UK and helped me overcome my conditions.

I will be heading out for my 10th Trip with African Adventures next Summer. Every year we recruit 30 to 40 volunteers to participate in this incredible, life changing opportunity. We have send hundreds of staff and students over the last 8 years and every single one of them has benefited from the unique opportunity AA provides. They ensure that all the work volunteers complete is not only valuable to the volunteers but supports the project, their long term goals with every project are clear and they do everything they can to maximize the impact of every volunteer. Underpinning all of this is the work of the foundation, this continues to go from strength to strength and we continue to support fundraising for the foundation for this reason. We have seen year on year the impact the foundation is having and we are blown away but the continued development of the projects, the children they support and the communities they are based in. Thank you for everything you do, we think your awesome!
