Through the money raised by sponsorship ChallengeAid focuses on “Schools of Hope” in some of Africa’s most impoverished slums.

Founded 2005

  • Mission statement

    Our aim is to create “Schools of Hope” for aspirational young slum dwellers in East Africa who often cannot attend school during the day due to family or work demands. These centres offer a complementary and alternative form of schooling, as well as a unique long term sustainable solution to the provision of education.

    We believe that we are one of the very few charities able to respond to some of Africa’s ongoing issues without creating a culture of dependency or bringing knee-jerk reactions to the latest crises.

    Through our work we enable some of the poorest people in Africa to escape a lifetime of poverty, and at the same time develop an infrastructure to help support the Continent to reach its full potential.

    ChallengeAid also funds St. Prisca with an education, feeding and medical programme for 60 orphans and children made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS.
