The Big Give Christmas Challenge is coming!

And we’re counting down the days …

DONATE – opens noon (GMT) 28 Nov


The Big Give Christmas Challenge is the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign and it begins on #GivingTuesday 28 November – a day to do good stuff for charity. This year, A Rocha International is aiming to raise £24,000 to support our global environmental education activities.

And here’s why we’d love your support …

We believe that inspiring people to engage directly with the world around them is fundamental to environmental conservation – whether that’s rockpooling with Kenyan students or planting trees with Syrian refugees. With projects in 20 different countries, the contexts and range of A Rocha’s environmental education activities can be highly diverse. A Rocha International gives training and provides opportunities to share experiences and expertise among environmental education practitioners. In 2018, we are planning to run a four-day regional environmental education conference in Kenya to equip and resource practitioners from A Rocha Organizations in Africa and Lebanon. This will be followed by workshops to build the capacity of teachers in rural Kenyan schools to promote environmental awareness and stewardship through their environmental education activities.

From noon (GMT) on 28 November until 5 December any donation you make to support this work through the Big Give’s Christmas Challenge website will be DOUBLED (while match funds last) by generous supporters and the Big Give’s philanthropic partner, the Reed Foundation.

Find out more or contact [email protected] for further information on how to donate during the Challenge.
