Your Help is Needed

A single donation makes a world of difference.

The Shamba Foundation is a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible.

There are many options for donations. We welcome whatever you can offer. The best way to help is to become a Friend of Shamba, providing a recurring donation that enables us to provide for the general and education needs of the children on an ongoing basis. If a one time donation works better for you, that's great, too. You can Fund a Scholarship for student education or adult business development; or choose your own amount with the Custom Donation option.
