Switch your Home Energy to support African Children’s Fund and save money!

African Children’s Fund has partnered with Oxfordshire energy and sustainability specialists, ViaFuture to help support their projects further by using an innovative home energy switching platform. The Uswitch search engine allows supporters to compare the very best renewable energy deals, and donate £20 for each dual fuel switch to African Children Fund to make a difference to children born into poverty, as well as getting a great deal to power their homes.

Zoe – Founder and Director of ViaFuture commented;

“We are delighted to be working with African Children’s Fund. The projects they run really are making a positive difference to so many lives, and we hope that as many people as possible will get involved and switch. Just one dual fuel transfer will fund over 220 cups of porridge at one of their Kenyan Porridge Clubs which will really make a difference. Our aim is to reach 100 switches, so hopefully the campaign gets off to a strong start so we can make it happen!”

Dee – Co-Founder and Director of African Children’s Fund commented;

“We are excited to share details of our new partnership with ViaFuture, that we hope will enable even more children born into poverty to receive a positive start in life and will promote the importance of sustainable energy throughout the UK. As well as being located in Oxfordshire, ViaFuture shares our moral values and also aims to create a viable future. We’re looking forward to seeing the results from this campaign!”

Switching is really simple! Head to www.viafuture.co.uk/residential, enter your postcode and start comparing deals. Once the switch is completed online, just email home@viafuture.co.uk and confirm you would like to make the donation, and ViaFuture will liaise with African Children’s Fund to complete the process.
