Abaana is a Christian based charity set up for the benefit of less privileged people in Africa. The word “Abaana” comes from a language found in the country of Uganda (East Africa) and means “children.” Most of our work is geared towards children in Africa, but not exclusively.
Abaana was set up in January 1998 and aims to show young people that through sacrificing a little time and money, they can also get involved in making a difference. Abaana hopes to share the love of God in a practical way with those who need it most. Young people and some not so young take part in sponsored events, barbecues and fun nights to raise money to support the worthwhile causes. All support is welcome no matter how young or old you are.
We are encouraging you to take up that challenge and get the people involved in your area. If you would like to represent Abaana where you live, read through this site for ways in which you can promote our work. We can supply you with sponsor forms and power point material so that you can get your church, youth group, school or any other group involved.
