Fundraising activities are the lifeline of all charities. We rely heavily on the charitable actions of people, who wish to donate for a cause that they believe in. There are many ways to fundraise such as via stalls, events and challenges you can undertake.
People are now easily reachable and are being informed online. What better way to conduct a fundraiser than doing it online? It’s easy and accessible to the public. If you wish to fundraise for us you can create a profile, set a target on My Donate via BT Donate and start fundraising!
As a charity, our objective is to fundraise enabling us to contribute to new projects and to maintain current ones. Inviting volunteers to Zanzibar not only gives the volunteer a chance to experience charity work first-hand, but it also enables us to raise crucial funds needed to continue our work.
We have a dedicated group of volunteers who each play an indispensable role in managing and running the Al-Ansari Foundation, both here and in Zanzibar. We’re always on the lookout for new talent to join our team and volunteer for us.
As a volunteer, you can choose to volunteer with us in the UK. We are looking for volunteers who have creative, vocal or technical skill sets such graphic or web design or are enthusiastic fundraisers and can drum up donations whether offline or online.
Alternatively, you can also volunteer for us in Zanzibar, Africa, providing you are successful in fundraising for a project here, you can travel to Zanzibar to partake in the delivery of the project. All those who have volunteered with us in Africa over the years have found the experience second to none.
“ I reached out to Al-Ansari Foundation (AAF) instead of the usual global brands gathering pools of cash not knowing where it goes, because I wanted to give, time and money to transform someone’s life. They were so supportive of my needs and encouraged my cause [to build an orphan home] …by volunteering for the AAF, I got to see firsthand the impact of my donation on people’s lives. I look forward to working with the AAF again in the future and I pray that I can bless more people and improve lives, one project at a time. “

We have orphan home builds, income generation, and water projects, as well as food distribution campaigns, which you can become involved in. Whilst out there you can also visit or teach in schools, you can even identify a deserving project of your own on either Zanzibar or its sister islands and come back home and fundraise for it.
