UK based Kenyan charity African Promise are keeping their fingers crossed this month ahead of three possible charity awards.

The small but ambitious London based charity work to improve the quality and provision of primary education in rural Kenya by ensuring that schools are equipped to deliver an education worth having.

Over the next few days they should find out if they have been voted Charity of the Year by staff at long-time supporter Aspect Capital.

Later in the month they will discover whether they have been shortlisted for a £50,000 marketing package from the BrandPie Foundation.

The BrandPie Foundation was established to support charities, not-for-profits and social enterprises to develop their purpose, and then help them – whether that’s a new identity or developing campaigns that get noticed.

Finally, African Promise will be hoping they have been awarded Charity Champion funding for their Big Give Christmas Challenge. This would allow them to match up to £5,000 of donations later in the year.

Collectively, these opportunities could be worth a massive £100,000 or more in cash and in-kind for the charity.
