Team St Albans Adventure Group’s story

In Kenya secondary school is not free. For children of the many poor parents, education beyond primary school therefore does not happen. If a child is able to attend secondary school this gives options such as university and apprenticeships - which opens opportunities to go on to earn a good salary and for them (and their families) to escape the poverty trap.


A number of members of the St Alban's Adventure Group have together sponsored Brian successfully through four years of secondary school. We now have the opportunity to sponsor Stacy.


Stacy is from the Luo tribe, with her family originally from around Lake Victoria. They now live in the slums in Nairobi where her father is able to pick up odd painting jobs. Her mother is not working and they rely on the goodwill of others to survive.


Stacy has three brothers. She performed very well at primary school, scoring an A- overall, and thus has the potential to get to university in the future. A donation of £50 (or £40 with gift aid) will cover all the costs for her for about half a term at boarding school.


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

The Red Rubber Ball Foundation

The Red Rubber Ball Foundation is a voluntary charity which provides scholarships for children to attend state secondary school in Kenya so they can get a full education.  We also support them beyond school through mentors to develop life skills to give them the best chance in life for them and their family.

In addition, RRBF runs a farming project so primary school children get a decent meal each day + a cycling club to keep kids in the slums of Nairobi off the street and away from bad influences like gangs, crime, drugs, glue, prostitution.

Every penny donated goes directly to these projects as all admin, fundraising and governance costs are covered by our founder. 

Registered Charity Number: 1140443.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
