Alongside donations of educational items, financial contributions are essential as we do not charge for our services. From cake sales to marathon running we welcome and support all forms of fundraising, so get involved.


As well as collecting educational materials for us, schools can also raise much-needed funds. Here are some of the activities that have helped raise money for School Aid. Can you suggest something new?

  • Sponsored walk and swim
  • Mufti day
  • Schools quiz
  • School fete stalls

Local groups and businesses

If your organization raises money for charities please consider putting us on your list. Several organizations have helped us enormously, for example Rotary and the Inner Wheel, church groups, clubs, town councils and businesses. Please contact us if you can give or help us with fundraising.

Why School Aid?

School Aid is unusual in providing an international door-to-door service. The core purpose of School Aid is to give goods rather than financial support so that it can ensure that all donations are well used.

School Aid’s volunteers in Africa carefully identify and review the needs of African schools, then volunteers in the UK match them with recycled goods whenever possible. All donations have zero costs for the recipient African schools.
