Get involved

There are many different ways you can support the activities of CFU. One of the most valuable things you can give us is your time, to help progress the work we do.

Join our events…

We try to hold social and fundraising activities across the year to raise awareness and money for the fantastic initiatives in Uganda… and we hope to more in future. Take a look at our Events Calendar to see what’s coming up near you!

Run your own events…

Some of our amazing supporters have run their own activities to raise funding and build awareness of our cause. From climbing Ben Nevis, to tea parties, pub quizzes, to sky diving. There are many things they have done, and many more things you can do. The CFU team are here to help you in organising your activities and provide fundraising tools.


Isle of Wight challenge

We’re always looking for more supporters to run their own fundraising events. If you’ve got a great idea or would like to discuss any initiatives.

Please email and we’ll be happy to help!

All of our team are volunteers and do what we do for the charity in our spare time. We each bring different skills to our roles and help the charity run as best as we can. This can be hard work, but it’s also great fun and hugely rewarding! We deliver presentations around the country and try to keep in touch with our supporters in various ways.

If you think you have something to offer and could help the charity we would love to hear from you! Whether that’s volunteering to help run an event, writing an article for the blog or newsletter or doing a presentation about what we do – just get in touch at


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.

♦  One-off donations can be made by online, by bank transfer or cheque.

♦  Regular monthly donations are a fantastic way of ensuring we can continuously deliver support to the priority needs at CALM Africa.

♦  “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!
