About us

E3 works with local partners to bring transformation to communities affected by poverty, HIV and AIDS, gender-based violence and COVID-19 in Southern Africa. Our partners understand the challenges and issues first-hand and how to respond in a sustainable way. We empower their leaders through training and financial support to respond to the social issues around them. In particular, E3 helps enable HIV support initiatives, microfinance to improve livelihoods, support for orphaned and vulnerable children to attend school and thrive, and workshops to help stop gender-based violence and support for those affected.

Gifts of Hope - presents that make a difference!

When you give a gift of hope to a relative or friend for Christmas, a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion, you will be helping change the life of an orphaned and vulnerable child through E3’s Back to School programme in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.

E3’s Gifts of Hope make the perfect present for friends and family. You will receive a gift certificate by email containing details of the gift you have bought for you to email or print and give to the recipient.

£20 can provide winter uniform to an orphaned child at Mdutshini Primary School, so they stay warm in winter. They love going to school in smart new uniform and they can’t attend school without it!

£25 provides one workshop on reproductive health and HIV and AIDS with eighteen school-going teenagers in rural Swayimane. Teenage pregnancy and higher rates of HIV infection are an increasing problem in that community. These weekly workshops are helping reverse that trend.

£50 provides one Life Skills workshop for 86 refugee children. They fled war-ravaged countries to seek asylum in South Africa. These workshops are run five times a year and help children cope with their situations, grow in confidence and make good choices in life.

£75 supplies a week’s worth of nutritious school meals to 50 orphaned and vulnerable children in an informal settlement called Sweetwater’s. Without this, these children will have empty tummies and will struggle to concentrate at school.

£100 gives food parcels to a child-headed household for a month. There is an increasing number of households, which are run by school-going teenagers. They struggle to look after younger siblings and continue with school.
