If you are a philanthropist, or from a company or charitable foundation, and are looking for a small but trusted charity with whom to partner then we are glad you have found us.

Donations from philanthropists, be they organisations or individuals, are our lifeblood. Without the generous grants and donations we receive from these sources very few of our projects and programmes would become a reality. Your support, whether that is through a large gift or grant, a corporate donation, or a Charity of the Year partnership could make a genuine difference to the lives and education of thousands of disadvantaged primary school children in Kenya.

There are a wide range of partnership possibilities with African Promise, from supporting a single project in one school, to funding a programme across all our partner schools, or we could even working together on the upgrade of an entirely new partner school.

Interested in partnering with us?

If you share our vision and would like to discuss how we could partner together with you, your trust or your company then we would be delighted to hear from you.



Aspect Capital initially identified us through an internet search for small charities working with schools in Africa. Over the last 6 years they have become our main supporter, having provided funding in excess of £150,000. The company has provided funding for a range of projects and programmes, including a major redevelopment of Kisimenyi Primary as well as our feeding programme, but more recently they have supported our core costs, including providing funding for us to invest in our fundraising capacity. In September 2017, staff at the company voted us as their Charity of the Year and subsequently raised more than £20,000 on their fundraising day, every penny of which has been matched by the company.

Hazel’s Footprints Trust first supported our work when we approached them for a small donation for an electrification project which ultimately turned into a much larger grant towards the redevelopment of Kisimenyi Primary School. Impressed by what we had achieved there, the Trustees came back to us in 2013 when they were looking for a trusted and reliable charity working on the ground with whom they could partner on a major school building project. Together with their funding and our expertise and knowledge, we partnered on a major £110,000 project to rebuild Ngambenyi Primary School, our seventh partner school, which was successfully completed (if slightly over budget!) in 2016.

Kids4Kenya is our 501(c)3 sister charity based in Baltimore, US. It was set up by our founder’s uncle, Peter Teuten, in 2009 and consists of both an adults committee and a kids committee, who both work together to organise various fundraising activities in the community and in schools. To date the charity has raised approximately £35,000. Both Peter’s daughters have headed up the kids committee when they were each in their teens; Peter remains as President but the kids committee is now led by Astri Doub.

We’d like to thank the following donors and funders for their support of our work over the last 10 years.
