Providing financial support for ongoing programmes run by teams in the countries where IRFF chooses to work.
Providing financial support for starting up new initiatives, aiding the teams working in the field to achieve self-sufficiency.
Over the past 40 years IRFF UK has gone through many different stages of development. Presently, our activities fall under two categories, Education and Period Poverty.
Where provision of such education or training is not necessarily given: Primary and Secondary Education, as well as Vocational Training, to prepare the youth for adult life and employment. Also benefiting their families and communities.
Assistance in healthcare: providing girls in period poverty with menstrual products, which prevents them from losing days from school every month. Also educating them on menstrual hygiene
IRFF UK has highly motivated people, primarily volunteers, in the six countries we currently work in. They are working hard to improve themselves so as to achieve higher levels of self-sufficiency. And they are prepared to deliver the services needed.
The programmes IRFF UK support are literally life-savers and life-changers for the current 1,600 beneficiaries in Africa, but we see great potential to help many more.
All funds we send to Africa go directly to the people who spend it charitably - and account for it.
Although IRFF UK has a good number of regular donors, there are always additional demands on funding due to changing circumstances. We are currently seeking to raise £19,000 between April 2023 to March 2024 to meet the needs of the current projects we are helping and naturally, unforeseen needs.
Apart from our charity shop in Alton we are completely dependent on the generosity of our donors, whether individuals, companies or charities.Your donation, whether big or small, will help us to support these 1,600+ beneficiaries in Africa. Any size of donation, at any time, helps us to help them.
