Fundraising Events

A fun way to raise money for our work is to join us at our events – from gala events at prestigious venues to running events where you can test your fitness and raise money at the same time! Every event is geared toward you enjoying yourself while helping improve the lives of children in Africa.

Or alternatively, if you feel like being creative and want to organise your own fundraising event, wed love to hear from you and can help support you – please contact Vanessa Booth at vanessa.booth@chiva-africa.org for more information.

What I love about CHIVA Africa is that it does something for AIDS, which people tend to shy away from, for children and for adolescents; they’re training and educating people to look after their community and themselves, so it’s brilliant in every way.”
