Big Give – ‘One donation, twice the impact’

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is running from Giving Tuesday (28th November) to 5th December.  All donations, up to our target of £15,000, will be matched by Big Give Champions, meaning your donation will have twice the impact! If you wish to support Atlas provide children with a chance to thrive, then this is the best time to help us! You can donate to the Big Give here.

Giving children in Eswatini a chance to thrive

All the funds raised from the Big Give will go directly to our local partners SKRUM, who are helping children in Eswatini fulfil their potential.  Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) has the highest rates of HIV/AIDS in the world. This is made worse by a strong patriarchal culture that limits the opportunities to women and girls. These issues make it difficult for children to hope for a better life. 

SKRUM and Atlas, with your support, are working to change this.  SKRUM visits schools across Eswatini and provides a safe space for children to learn about important issues such as HIV/AIDS and gender inequality and violence, as well as supporting them in their education. Through enjoyable rugby sessions, the children become engaged and look forward to the sessions with SKRUM. Together, we can give more children in Eswatini access to the vital resources that SKRUM can provide.
