Action ForAfrica

Your creativity is needed! Use your opportunities and your environment to collect donations for your heart project. We will be happy to support you. Here are some ideas:

We’ll send you a box and you can put it somewhere. At home, in the village bakery, at church, on your birthday, at Christmas, at school or in your store. We can also personalize the design or add your company logo. Transfer the money you raise to us and change lives. Use the button below to order a box from us today.

Use an existing event or plan a new one. Whether it’s a concert, painting or dance class, BBQ or charity party – donate the proceeds to a project. We will be happy to send you the necessary material such as flyers, annual reports or our red bowls.

Whether it’s a birthday, Christmas, company gift or wedding – share it with people in Africa. Instead of a gift, wish for donations for your heart project. We will be happy to send you flyers or a personalized donor link including a QR code.

Organize a sponsored run with your friends, your club or your school. Donate the proceeds to a project of your choice. Get in touch with us and we will support you.

Use your environment to make ForAfrika known. We would also be happy to visit you in person and tell you about our work. Whether it’s a business lunch, a sports day, a project week, a church service or a final project – we are happy to help you with ideas and materials.

Whether in your magazine, on social media, your website, in your newsletter, your email signature or on your car. We will gladly send you the content so that you can advertise for us.

Be creative and try something new! Your personal idea is in demand. We are happy to support you.

Volunteer work

Would you like to join our team and contribute your time and talents? Then get in touch with us.

We send mail to our donors 5 times a year. Visit us in the office and help us pack the letters. Your friends are also very welcome, because it’s especially fun together. We would be happy to add you to our non-binding help list.

If French is your mother tongue or you speak it at C2 level, then help us translate our reports and letters into French. Get in touch today.

Do you like to lend a hand and love meeting new people? We always need people to help set up and dismantle our ForAfrica events or to manage the catering stations at the Hike ForAfrica. We would be happy to add you to our non-binding help list.

Do you have experience in press releases, marketing, social media, design, copywriting, editing, administration or other topics that you could help us with? Do you have a specific project idea for which you could use this or would you simply like to donate your time and skills? Then get in touch with us today.

Hike ForAfrica

Take on the challenge of a lifetime and change the history of people in Africa. We hike 100 kilometers, or as far as our feet will carry us. Are you at the start?

Hike around Lake Zurich

Join us on our annual hike around Lake Zurich. 100 kilometers in 24 hours. Find people who will support you with a donation per kilometer or as a lump sum and join us at the start.

Catering posts

Do you not feel fit enough for a hike or is hiking not your thing anyway? Then help us at the aid stations and drive your car from station to station to ensure a constant supply of energy for the runners.

Relief operations

Do you want to make a difference? Roll up your sleeves and get down to business? Then become part of a mission team and come with us to Africa for a week! We are looking for participants with a heart for children and a willingness to lend a hand. We are building new daycare centers and schools in southern Africa, thereby improving the children’s future in the long term.

Make us known

The more people know us, the more support we receive. The more support we receive, the more lives we can change through our projects. That’s why we depend on you! Help us to become known and tell people about us in your environment. We will be happy to send you physical or digital marketing material to support you:

  • Flyer / Annual report
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Roll-up banner
  • E-mail signature
  • Logo adhesive film for your car
  • etc.
