How to help

Our mission is to raise both awareness and funds for CALM Africa, to ensure their fantastic work can continue. Money raised can be used to improve facilities, buy new equipment or fund community activities.

Together, we can not only improve the lives of Ugandan children living in extreme poverty now but create the chance for a better future, through education and sustainable interventions.

There are 3 main ways you can help our cause and help us make this difference.


Fundraising is our core activity to support CALM Africa’s programmes and projects. Even as little as £1 gives us an opportunity to do something to help a child who has little to nothing. You can donate as much and however is best for you.

Donate online:  You can quickly and easily donate a single amount or set up a regular donation through our online page with Virgin Money Giving.

Donate with a cheque: Send a cheque payable to ‘Children First Uganda’. Post it to  Anthony Bateman, Children First Uganda, 4 The Bell Field, Luckington, Chippenham, Wilts SN146GZ.

“Free” donations: Yes, you read that correctly! When doing online shopping, you can donate to us every time you make a purchase by registering for FREE with Easyfundraising. It costs you no more than the item you’re buying – a percentage of your purchase is donated by the retailer!

Fundraise for us

Sponsor a child

Education provides the best opportunity for a better future. Many of the children we help simply cannot get access to schooling. The child sponsorship programme helps us get these children into a CALM Africa school where they can receive essential learning and social development.

For more information about child sponsorship contact Tony Bateman by email at or by phone +44(0)7826055303.
