Our Volunteers and Supporters

Everyone connected with Akamba Children’s Education Fund gives their time and skills voluntarily and we should like to thank them hugely, as without their support there would be no charity.  Our volunteers come with a fabulous range of experiences and knowledge, which enables us to make the significant difference we do.   There is space for all, those who can spare just a few hours a month, to those who undertake huge projects for us, like the Toilet Project, to those who do a specific one-off activity.  We value every moment that is donated to us and are very grateful as we know it makes a huge difference to our young people who attend Brainhouse Academy.  If you would like to explore how your skills and talents can help support our young people, please do get in touch.

Our work was acknowledged formally when once of our Trustees, Liz Formby, was recognised in the New Years Honours and was also awarded the National Civil Service Volunteering Award in 2015.  See News Item on the MBE presentation at the Palace. On both occasions Prince William and the Queen were very interested to know more about the work we do and have asked to be kept informed.
