Fundraise for Mukwashi

Our fundraisers

We are incredibly grateful for the people who generously give their time and energy to raise funds for Mukwashi by organising special events and activities. 

Here are some examples of the fundraising events they’ve arranged. We hope they will inspire you to organise your own event.

Last January, a maths teacher at Bexhill 6th Form College, East Sussex, UK, organised a sponsored hair cut hoping to pay for two free places at Mukwashi. He raised over £1,200 – enough for five free places.

Last February, teachers at the American International School, Vienna, Austria,  organised a used books’ sale which raised €1,200.  In the last few years, their activities  have raised over €5,000 for Mukwashi. 

Each autumn, several schools around the world remember Mukwashi and raise funds for different improvement  projects.

For example, King Edward’s School in Birmingham, UK, gave Mukwashi £500 from its non uniform day, and a small local school in Singapore raised $500 for the bus project at its annual carol service

Each November, students at East Ridge Middle School, Connecticut, US, hold an apple pie sale for Mukwashi. Last year, they raised a whopping $4,700 just by selling pies! Over the past few years, they’ve raised $25,000 through their fundraising activities.

Throughout last autumn, a ‘volunteering mum’ at the International School of Luxembourg was busy making a wide range of crafts to sell for Mukwashi at her school’s 2022 Christmas Fair.  She raised over €200 for the bus project by selling the items she had made.

She’s also part of a small group of parents and staff at the Luxembourg school who celebrate each others’ birthdays by giving gifts to Mukwashi. In 2022, their birthday gifts came to over €1,500 and helped complete the toilet & water project.
