Project Partnership

Providing meaningful support to developing community projects in Africa

Our partner projects are community-based organisations which operate independently from African Adventures. We don’t run them, and we never will. We work in collaboration with these projects to help them grow, develop, and provide the best support to their local communities.

Our partner projects are mostly schools, although we also support a birthing clinic in Ghana. We provide financial and volunteer support to schools because we believe that education is by far the most effective way to improve opportunities for young people and help to alleviate long-term poverty.

We encourage and support innovation, enterprise and sustainability at the projects. Micro-finance initiatives (small local enterprises) help to make projects sustainable and provide local community members with valuable employment skills. It is in the interest of everyone to reduce reliance on grants and donations.

Our Project-led Philosophy

African Adventures maintains a project-led philosophy

Our partner projects are run totally autonomously. The reason for this is simple; the local project leaders know the projects inside out and far better than we do. This model of partnership is epitomised by our relationship with The Walk Centre.

Projects provide us with a clear direction for their own development. We respond to their needs in the most effective way possible, by providing volunteers, capital and resources for sustained and manageable growth. We always do our best to be flexible and adaptable.

We don’t just talk the talk; we ensure that each project benefits year on year from volunteering. Find out more about our tangible impact here.
