Our Volunteers and Supporters

All supporters of Akamba Children’s Education Fund give their time and skills voluntarily and we would like to thank them hugely as without them there would be no charity. We draw our volunteers from a wide range of experiences and they help with marketing, financial management most importantly ideas generation and implementing some of our exciting projects.

The work of ACEF has been acknowledged formally when one of our key Trustees, Liz Formby, was recognised in the New Years Honours and was awarded the National Civil Service Volunteering Award at Buckingham Palace in Oct 2015. On both occasions Prince William and the Queen were very interested to hear of our work and have asked us to keep them informed of the progress we are making. See our News Item on the MBE presentation at the Palace.

P1130172We greatly value the expertise that many of our volunteers, in fact we are absolutely delighted to have learned that Katie Thompson, one of our regular volunteers has been awarded the Freedom of London by nomination for the research work she has undertaken on the conservation of elephants. From now on in she will be known as a Freeman of the City of London. Here she is on a recent trip helping with the planning for the Green Toilets.
