One Donation, Twice the Impact

For the first time, African Children’s Fund is taking part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge! Every donation made to our special Porridge Clubs page from 29th November – 6th December 2022 will be doubled until we reach our £8,000 target.

 

Kenyan Porridge Clubs

School Porridge Clubs in Kenya alleviate absenteeism caused by food poverty. When children come to school without breakfast, they resort to scavenging for food instead of going to school. If we reach our target, your donations will help 2,000 children attend school for 3 months thanks to a daily mug of nutritious porridge. At just 9p per mug of porridge, this equates to almost 90,000 mugs of porridge!

Brenda is now an Advocate at the High Court of Kenya in Nairobi, but started life in Thika where she was an early recipient of porridge at school. She credits the Porridge Clubs with giving her opportunities to follow her dreams:

 “I learnt through this project that a little support goes a long way. Supporting people gives them hope, where there is hope, people can dream, and when people freely dream, they get vision and purpose which gives them a chance to be something.”

Please Save The Date as donations open on Giving Tuesday, 29th November and we’d love you to help us reach our ambitious target.

  • If you are able to donate £9, the Big Give Christmas Challenge match funding means your donation will be doubled to £18 and you will contribute 200 mugs of porridge.

  • If you are able to donate £40, the Big Give Christmas Challenge match funding means your donation will be doubled to £80 and you will contribute 900 mugs of porridge.

We thank you in advance for your kind support. For any questions, please contact us and we will be happy to help. Otherwise, please don’t forget to donate on our dedicated page between 12:00 on 29th November and 11:59 on 6th December!
