I’m a Child
Junior Friends of AbleChildAfrica
We passionately believe that all children should be given a voice on matters they care about and that impact their lives.
Our partners work with us to ensure that children are heard in Africa and, in the UK, we offer opportunities for children to learn about and get involved with our work by becoming a Junior Friend of AbleChildAfrica.
Junior Friends of AbleChildAfrica is a special group of people aged 18 and under. To join all we ask is that you support our work in any way you think is important and that you have FUN doing it! You will be supporting children who are often not given the chance to reach their full potential.
Together, we really know how to put the FUN into fundraising! Whether it’s an event organised at school or at home, or giving £1 per month from your pocket money, taking part is a great way to get creative, understand the value of charity and help raise money for some of the world’s most vulnerable children. You could even use Facebook, MySpace, Bebo or Twitter to tell people about our work, or write a letter to your local MP. The opportunities are endless!
Become a Junior Friend of AbleChildAfrica by letting us know about your event or get in touch for help with your ideas! If you are a parent or a pupil and want to get more inspiration on how you can help Transform the Lives of your Disabled Peers In Africa, please click here.

Our Junior Friends in Action
The Power of Children
Watch to see how one classroom of students raised an incredible 1,130 Euros in a single day with their amazing bake sale.
They became some of our first Junior Friends of AbleChildAfrica and have truly helped children we work with in Africa to get an education too.
Special credit goes to Special Needs Teacher Victoria Martin and her year 6 students at the British School of the Netherlands.
