I’ll get straight to the point. A generous fan of Network for Africa will match donations up to a total of £15,000/$21,000. Please consider supporting us by clicking here.
Why support us?
Network for Africa may be small, but we achieve a great deal with modest resources because we don’t waste money on a fancy HQ, a big staff or vanity projects. We won’t be inviting you to a gala dinner because many fancy fundraising events take so much staff time to organise that they often only break even. Our staff is one full-time hero, Annabel, and three part-time angels, Lesley, Michael and Tom. They have enough on their hands already without worrying about floral centrepieces. Our focus is on giving support, training and resources to the excellent African community groups with whom we work – not paying an agency to “re-imagine our image.”
