Soap helps protect children from dangerous diseases.
With limited access to safe water, children in rural Africa are often at risk of serious but preventable illnesses – including typhoid, cholera and diarrhoea. Boreholes and water tanks can reduce the threat, but it's soap that kills the germs.
Your gift could help train teachers and parents to make simple but vital soap, and support them to teach children hygienic handwashing practices so they can stay healthy at school.
How it works
Each alternative gift includes a beautiful postcard recognising the contribution made in the recipient's name. It describes how the gift will support education in the communities we work with.
- Choose an alternative gift
- If you'd like your gift sent directly to a friend: add a personal message in the box below (to be handwritten on your behalf), then tell us their address on the next page
- Or, we can deliver a blank card card straight to you, so you can add your own greeting
All of our gifts represent aspects of real long-term projects in rural Africa. As the need for funding and support can change within each community we partner with, your gift will be used wherever it is needed most.
