Donate to African Initiatives

Coronavirus appeal

We work with some of the poorest and most marginalised people in the world; communities already devastated by HIV/AIDS, typhoid, malaria and other deadly but preventable diseases. COVID-19 looks set to wreck even greater health and economic havoc in Tanzania. Please donate here to our COVID-19 emergency appeal today

Together with our Tanzanian partners, we improve access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene, and sexual and reproductive health services. Activities like these, which support the Tanzanian public healthcare system, are even more important now. We are asking for your support today so we can extend the reach of our life-saving programmes. If you have any questions, please email James Treasure-Evans, our Director of Funding and Partnerships, at or call 0117 915 0001.

Coronavirus update: Our office is currently closed due to COVID-19 and all Bristol-based staff are working from home. Please email James to get in touch with one of the fundraising team.

Make a Regular Gift

A regular donation will help us change the lives of marginalised women and children living in the rural north of Tanzania, from funding an HIV test to supporting a Maasai girl through secondary school, providing her with a way to escape early forced marriage, an unplanned pregnancy and financial dependency. See the options below for how your single or regular donation can have an impact, in addition to different methods of donating such as by phone or post. If you have any questions, please contact James Treasure-Evans our Director of Funding and Partnerships by email or phone 0117 915 0001. (Corunavirus update: I’m afraid that our office is currently closed due to the coronavirus and all Bristol based staff are working at home. Please email James on the address above to get in touch with one of the fundraising team)
