Our aim is to achieve a more sustainable future for all through our work.

The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognise that ending poverty must go hand in hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

We are committed to driving  15 of the 17  goals in the areas we work and we focus on:

Food Security Programmes

Increasing food security for the children at our partner schools in Kenya has been a key focus of African Adventures Foundation’s work. For many of the children we support, the food they receive at school might be the only meal they eat each day. Through the programme, every child receives two meals daily, giving them the energy they need to focus at school.

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

African Adventures Foundation completed its Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) programme in 2023, which has benefitted 8,253 girls and 7,798 boys who attend three of the schools we support in Zanzibar.

The programme saw piped water installed, 37 new gendered latrine toilets, 12 handwashing stations and three privacy rooms built across our three schools to improve personal hygiene and give girls a private space to manage their menstruation. The education programme saw personal hygiene and menstrual health workshops for both boys and girls.

2024 will see the WASH programme rolled out to three of our partner schools in Ghana, impacting 1,674 lives.

Education and Infrastructure

At African Adventures, we’re on a mission to support thousands of children in Africa during their education and to help provide them with more opportunities in life. Around one-fifth of children between the ages of 6 and 11 are out of school in Africa. By partnering with schools in Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar, we aim to impact the lives of many generations to come by helping our partner schools to grow and encourage more children to start school. We build new infrastructure- from new classrooms and toilets to kitchens and play areas – and support the delivery of the curriculum.

Responsible Volunteering

From hiring local staff to run our trips to encouraging volunteers to buy locally made souvenirs and working with schools that are run by members of the local community, we’re committed to organising sustainable, responsible and mutually beneficial volunteering experiences.

Education is an integral part of our work, not only for the students at our partner schools but also for those who travel and volunteer with us. We are great believers in learning outside the classroom – especially in other countries and within other cultures – as we feel that this promotes lifelong learning, global awareness and an understanding of challenges to development. We educate our volunteers about the responsibility that we all have for protecting the environment by explaining how our volunteers can offset the carbon emissions from their flights, how they can reduce the amount of plastic waste generated during their trips and show them the impact of climate change on developing communities through visits to the Hilton Dumpsite in Kenya.

Tegbi Birthing Clinic

African Adventures is working with Tegbi Birthing Clinic through an off-setting scheme which will provide the clinic with 30 maternity packs each month to support mothers who cannot afford these essential supplies for their babies.

Tegbi Birthing Clinic, located in the deprived area of Woe, where our 11 partner schools are based, provides birthing support to women in the community. The clinic is a lifeline for many women who cannot afford the higher fees for the local hospital and want the safety of being supported throughout their labour.

Through our partnership with Tegbi Birthing Clinic, we aim to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal of good health and well-being.
