How You Can Help

There are so many ways that you can make a difference with ACFS, to the vulnerable children of South Africa. We know that not everyone is in a position to contribute financially, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t add value in your own special way, so whether it’s volunteering at one of our centres, donating your well-loved clothes or a blanket, or setting up your own fundraiser when you run The Comrades Marathon or ride in your favourite bike race. 

Donate Cash

Monetary gifts are the most useful, as they can be quickly channeled to areas of greatest need. And because we buy items like bread and peanut butter in bulk, we are able to negotiate advantageous prices.

Donate Items

Gifts of children’s clothing, toys, fabric, sewing machines, gardening tools and seeds are always appreciated. Please contact us if you have items you think may be of use to us.

Sponsor a party

Treats are rare for most of the children we serve. If you’d like to give them a little happiness, you might like to sponsor a party by providing cake, chips, sweets and juice.


If you are interested in volunteering your time or skills, please click the button above to register at Community Hours. Volunteers with skills in sewing, gardening or baking – and those with teaching experience are particularly welcome!

Leave a legacy

One sentence in your Will can change the lives of hundreds of children in years to come – and it costs you nothing! Please consider including a bequest to ACFS when you write your Will.
