Online Shopping

There are other ways to show your support for African Initiatives if you feel you do not have the time to volunteer or money to spare. For example, shop via AmazonSmile, which launched in the UK at the end of 2017, and we could receive 0.5% of the net purchase price of your Amazon online shop at no extra cost to you. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Please sign up to AmazonSmile here, nominating African Initiatives as your chosen charity. Similarly, you can shop online via Easyfundraising and help us raise money for our work – and it won’t cost you a penny more.


Sign up to My Cause choose your festival and volunteer role. For AI to receive a donation all you have to do is complete your shifts and fill in a feedback form with our charity number (1064413). You must be over 18 and volunteer for a maximum of 3 x 8 hour shifts across the event period.

Eating Out

Use ChariTABLE bookings. You can search and book thousands of participating UK restaurants who will donate £1 per diner. The app is free to download and you can even ‘walk in’ and log your booking via the app from your table!


At Recycle4Charity choose AI as the charity which will benefit from your old mobile phones, laser and toner cartridges. GIVEACAR raises money for UK charities by scrapping and selling old cars. They’ll collect your old car for free and either recycle it for cash or send it to auction.
