About African Children's Fund

Our work with grass roots partners in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe in education and children's rights is making a real difference to the lives of 2,500 children born into poverty every year.

Many children in Africa are born into grinding poverty and helping them off the streets and into school is the best way to give them the skills, confidence, and qualifications to improve their lives and build a better future.

One pupil, Brenda says our project "helps us forget our worries and focus on school and education... we now have hope that we will make a good life because we can finish school"
