Africa’s Gift supports largely rural communities in southern Africa (principally Lesotho, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, and Malawi) and Uganda, working closely with community members to effect change through the development of practical solutions to clearly identified needs.
We also reach out to UK community members who wish to become involved - at home or overseas.

Firstly, let's welcome 2018 - the centenary year of Nelson Mandela's birth, and the 10 year anniversary of Africa's Gift, the charity. We are really looking forward to celebrating these milestones with all of our friends and supporters. Check our Facebook page regularly to keep up to date with our plans.
Our first celebration event is a Wonderbag activation visit taking place at the end of February, with accommodation at Oaklands Country Manor (South Africa) and Malealea Lodge (Lesotho). Limited number of places currently available.
Anyone living local to Rotherham may recently have seen our zebra roaming around. Regular sightings are most likely to happen at schools, community centres or businesses undertaking shoe collections for our Happy Feet initiative - sending donated shoes to be re-homed in Africa.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to organise a collection from your group or business - and this needn't now be restricted to South Yorkshire.....
In partnership with SAB Textiles, we are currently trialling doorstep collections in the West Midlands. This new venture includes footwear AND clothing, which we hope to expand further in the near future, so why not get in touch to discuss your needs?
Thank you for your support of our work both at home and abroad!
