    SOS Africa Mafikeng Celebrating 15 Year Anniversary



The SOS Africa Children's Charity is a small UK based grassroots child sponsorship organisation which invests 100% of funds raised in the education and care of underprivileged South African children. 

Since 2003 we have provided 107 disadvantaged children, from grades 1 to 12, with a personal education programme or learning support scheme tailored specifically to their needs. This holistic approach enables children to break the cycle of poverty and reach their full potential.

If you decide to Sponsor a Child in Africa, SOS Africa provides sponsors with regular feedback and maintains strong lines of communication between child and supporter. Regular updates are also posted on the SOS Africa Children’s Blog.

The SOS Africa Children's Charity provides:

  • A Personal Approach – The charity is run by a close group of family and friends.
  • A Holistic Education Programme - Including school tuition, aftercare support, transport, clothing and stationery.
  • Regular Progress Reports - Maintaining strong lines of communication between child, organisation and sponsor.
  • Minimal Charity Expenses – 100% of your donation will be invested in the education & care of the SOS Africa children. UK Expenses are covered by Gift Aid.

If you have any questions you can contact the charity's founder Matt Crowcombe directly ( / 01749344197). 

Thank you for your support.
