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 their activities. We hope they will inspire you to organise your own special event.

In 2022, a maths teacher at a 6th Form College in East Sussex, UK, arranged a sponsored hair cut hoping to pay for two free places at Mukwashi. Instead, he raised over £1,200 – enough for five free places.

In 2023, a mum in Milton Keynes, UK, organised a collection of new and used spectacles at her local secondary school.  Through this, 50 pairs of glasses were delivered to Mukwashi to help children and staff who were struggling to read  books and the chalk-board. 

Last year, teachers at the American International School, Vienna, Austria,  organised a used books’ sale  and other events to raise over €5,000 for Mukwashi. 

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

Last year, a school in Birmingham, UK, gave Mukwashi £500 from its non uniform day, and a small local school in Singapore raised $500 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 $4,000 just by selling pies!  What can you do?

Throughout last autumn, a supporter at a school in Luxembourg was busy making a wide range of crafts to sell for Mukwashi at her school’s 2023 Christmas Fair.  She raised over €300 by selling the items she and her relatives had made.

She’s also part of a small group of parents and staff at this Luxembourg school who celebrate each others’ birthdays by giving gifts to Mukwashi. In 2023, their birthday gifts came to over €2,000: this provided a new laptop for the school office, 11 new double desks for the lower primary classroom, 7 new stools for the science lab and 21 top-quality umbrellas & waterproof coats to keep all the staff dry in the rainy season.
