About

SarahThe aim of “Boo” is to help children of Africa disadvantaged through economic poverty. We provide help in a variety of ways, including food, shelter, health, education, life-skills and emotional support.

The overriding ethos of “Boo” will always be to provide “Opportunity not Charity”. As one orphaned youngster we met on our first trip to Kenya said “Don’t just give me a fish, teach me how to fish.”

Boo is a very low cost charity being run by the Trustee’s and a team of volunteers. This enables us to use all your money on our projects, which directly help the children who really need it.
