Fundraise for us
Child Action is fortunate to have the support of schools, individuals and trusts and foundations to help fund our education projects in India, some are showcased below, and some prefer to remain anonymous.
Take a look at some of the brilliant fundraising activities that friends of Child Action have been involved with and browse some of our ideas so that you can have a go at fundraising for us too!
Trusts and Foundations:
The Hemraj Goyal Foundation
Micheal Papadakis and his wife Elena decided that they had everything they needed when people asked what to get them on their wedding day, so instead they asked for money to be donated to Child Action!
They raised a whopping £4,478!
Thank you Micheal and Elena!
Footsteps 4 Good
A dedicated team of enthusiastic walkers took part in our annual fundraising event Footsteps 4 good!
Lapping Greenwich Park (some ambitiously in a three legged knot!) the event raised £1,500 for Child Action! Thank you so much to everyone who got involved.
Three enthustastic individuals carred out a triathalon for us!
Running, swimming and cycling because no child should have to live in poverty.
We were so grateful for their efforts - and they look like they really enjoyed it too!
London Marathon 2015
This year we were lucky enough to have three dedicated marathon runners taking on the streets of London in support of Child Action - raising funds to support children living in poverty in India. A maasive thanks to Olivia, Gaurav and James for their efforts!
Hatfeild Primary School felt so inspired after partaking in our Enterprise 4 Change Schools project that they spent a whole year fundraising for Child Action to give back to the children they had learnt about in India.
Carrying out bake sales, toy tombola's and selling tickets to their Christmas play - the school raised an enormous £1,400 for their counterparts living in poverty. Thank you Hatfeild!

The Allan and Nesta Ferguson Trust
Alleyn's Junior School carried out our Enteprise 4 Change project and learnt lots of interesting things about the children that live within the streets and slum communities of Mumbai.
They chose Child Action as their 'charity champion' and spent two whole years raising funds to give back to their less fortunate peers.
Alleyn's raised £7,000 for children living in poverty in India - thank you Alleyn's!
We are proud to announce that the Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust are funding our partner organisation Apnalaya's disability project.
Milldene Primary School
Milldene Primary School felt so impassioned when learning about children that live within Mumbai's street and slum communties through our Enterprise 4 Change project that they took it upon themsleves to write to every celebrity that they knew asking them to help children living in poverty.
When Colchester United football team responded and asked to come in and meet the children, the class did a presentation to encourage the team to raise awareness and funds.
Activists and fundraisers - well done Milldene!
The Big Give
We were thrilled when our partner organisation Door Step School was accepted into the Big Give Christmas Challenge!
We found pledgers and online donors to secure matched funding which helped to fund the School on Wheels Project!
A group of Southampton University Students came up with the innovative idea to take part in an all night 'Slum it!'

Thank you to our dedicated students, for giving their time and energy to fundraise for us!

SLUM IT! Night
Get a group of people together and sleep out somewhere unfamiliar. You could try the office with your colleagues or the back garden with your mates. Try and build a slum environment using recyclable rubbish so that the experience is similar to that of those you are sending your money to.
Set up a just giving page and get everyone you know to sponsor you. You can take photos which we will upload to our website, or better still get the local press involved like these two ladies did! Have a read of their article here.
