African Children’s Fund is a small, Oxfordshire-based charity (Reg. charity no. 1114699) working with grass roots partners in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe. Focussing on education and children’s rights, we are making a real difference to the lives of 2,500 children born into poverty every year.
Once these causes were identified, the solutions were not difficult to establish - providing school meals through our Porridge Clubs and sanitary towels through our Education All Month, Every Month programme have proved highly effective in ensuring all children have the chance of a full-time education and the skills to build a better life for themselves.
Testimonial: 13-year-old Agnes is a pupil at Ng'ate Primary School in Kenya, and receives a daily mug of porridge through a Porridge Club scheme. "On behalf of the pupils of Ng'ate Primary School, I would like to thank you for the porridge feeding programme in our school. Our pupils are healthier than other children in the community. We are learning more quickly because we are not hungry and hardly ever have a day off school anymore. The porridge gives us the energy to run and learn. THANK YOU!"
