Become a Fundraiser

We are in need of people committed to making a difference in the lives of young people. They are the catalyst for all we do today and the assurance that our work will continue in the future.

Fundraise through email and engaging your circle of influence

Build awareness within your own community and fundraise. The goal is to gather your friends, family and the wider online community via email and contact chats and thus fundraise around themes that inspire you. By getting someone to care and contribute as little as R 100 you can really make a difference.   Imagine: if you and 99 other supporters each rallied just 10 people, and each of those 10 people contributed R100, you as a group would have raised R 100,000 for Ambassadors Youth and Community Development’s activities.   Proceeds will benefit our signature programmes like the AYCD Youth Ambassadors, Ambassadors Sports Development, AYCD Youth Centre and Life skills Programmes. In addition, we provide assistance to communities by providing much needed services and training.   If you have any questions feel free to contact us and thank you for your time and consideration to our request and hope you can assist us in our mission and activities.   For more info contact Aneil Manmohan - aneil@aycd.org

AYCD’s “Sponsor a Child Programme is a personalized sponsorship programme, whereby an individual can sponsor a child for a fixed monthly amount.
