Improving the lives of children affected by HIV & AIDS

Our partners can only continue to help children affected by HIV & AIDS thanks to the generosity of our many supporters.  

Fundraise

Join our many supporters who find ingenious ways of fundraising for Egmont be it hosting a quiz night, running a bake sale, designing a Christmas card, jumping out of a plane (with a parachute!) or running the Marathon des Sables! All of our operating costs in the UK and Africa are covered by our Trustees and Patrons so 100% of the money you raise will go to projects working to improve the lives of children affected by HIV & AIDS.

Events

Our annual awards ceremony each March is an opportunity to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of our African partners, and also to thank our many loyal supporters who help to fund their work. Our annual fundraising event is generally held in November and has seen guests betting on mechanical pig races as well as a Gala Dinner & Auction hosted in the elegant setting of the Royal Institute of British Architects.


Donate

As a charity we rely entirely on the generosity of our many supporters and welcome every donation.Full coverage of our operating costs by our Trustees and Patrons ensures that our organisation is slim, efficient and flexible enabling 100% of your donations to go directly to organisations working to improve the lives of children affected by HIV & AIDS.

We particularly encourage people to join us as regular givers, helping us to plan for the future with more confidence.
