A huge welcome from Africa’s Gift. 

We hope you find our website informative and that you enjoy browsing; and we would love you to join us in making a difference. 

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.

Further details now available from ken@africasgift.org

Are you ready to volunteer with us?!

In the wake of our 10th Anniversary celebrations in 2018, Africa's Gift continues to work hard to offer 'new' opportunities for volunteers to join us in making a difference in the southern hemisphere.  We firmly believe that everyone has something to offer, and with this in mind we invite you to consider your, and your friends', possible involvement....

Following several years successful collaboration with Wonderbag - manufacturers of the revolutionary thermal cooking bag - our volunteers can now join one of our dynamic Wonderbag activation visits.  These typically see groups beginning their journey at the Wonderbag factory in Durban, meeting Sarah Collins, CEO & inventor of the Wonderbag, and buying supplies - which they then go on to introduce and demonstrate to communities along their route. 

"The Wonderbag activations were utterly joyous.  It is amazing to see the difference that can be made with this simple technology!"        Elizabeth Latham  


This will be very much a scoping visit to assess the feasibility of future Wonderbag Activation visits in the region.  Find out more at Wonderbag Exploratory Tour, Namibia, Chobe and Victoria Falls, August 2019.


If your circumstances prevent a hands-on visit at present, you can support one of our visiting groups by paying for a Wonderbag to be introduced into a south African community here

Booking your shoe and clothing collections:

Anyone living in South Yorkshire is bound to have now seen our zebra roaming around the streets.  Regular sightings are most likely at schools, community centres or businesses undertaking shoe collections for our Happy Feet initiative - sending donated shoes to be re-homed in Africa - but don't hesitate to let us know via our Facebook page if you have seen it elsewhere.

Ready zebra.jpg  Contact ken@africasgift.org to organise your own organisation's footwear collection. 

If you live in the West Midlands, we are  currently trialling doorstep collections - of both footwear AND clothing - in partnership with SAB Textiles, so why not get in touch to discuss your needs?

         Thank you for your support of our work both at home and abroad!
