How You Can Help?

Make a connection, leave your mark!
  1. Afrikaya Sponsorship

You can sponsor Afrikaya either by monthly donation or as a one off donation: for general purposes or a specific project.

a. General donations

Your donation goes straight into the school fund and will be spent on whatever the school needs most at that time, allowing each child to directly benefit from this donation.

To make a donation, we would prefer you to donate via MyDonate. If you are a UK tax payer, this makes Gift Aid on your donation much easier for us to collect. If you would prefer, you can set up a monthly Direct Debit, please email us on for more information.

b. Child Sponsorship:

If you wish to sponsor an individual child, please go to Sponsor a Child

c. Choose Where Your Money Goes!

Be an active part of the Afrikaya Nursery School and choose where your money will go. Whatever your interest or size of donation, you can feel a big part of the make-up of the school.


Sponsor a school uniform for a non-sponsored child: Many of the families of non-sponsored children struggle to buy their school uniforms. Just £10 will buy 2 uniforms and school t shirt and skirt [for girls].

Sponsor a sack of rice: £20 will buy a week’s supply of rice for school lunches.

Sponsor Tiger, the school dog: £5 will go towards her food and vet’s bill.

Sponsor medication: £15 will buy a supply of malarial medication so that urgent cases can be treated on site by Olly our school nurse. We regularly need to buy vitamin syrup, children’s pain killers, anti-fungal medication and so on

Sponsor the kitchen garden: £5 will buy seeds and pay for the additional help needed during site preparation and planting.

Sponsor school furniture: a chair for £10, with your name carved on it for a further £5; a school desk for £25; a classroom cupboard for £130.

Sponsor the upgrade of our solar power. The water pump and the electricity are powered by solar.  Three of the five classrooms and the admin block, kitchen and medical centre are without any electricity at the moment. Estimated total still to raise is £4,000 but if many people donate a small amount, that will soon be reached.

Sponsor the roof on the new building – This is our priority for fundraising at the moment. The building of the first floor of the new building has been finished. This will house a community center and adult skills center. We need to get the roof on before June 2018 when the rainy season starts. It covers a vast area and the approximate cost is £10,000. We have already received donations for £6050 but only have a short time to raise more. A donation, however small, towards this will be much appreciated. Donate here.
