ChallengeAid, formerly known as Schoolchildren for Children, is a registered charity, established in 2005 to help children living in some of Africa’s worst slums .
Since inception, ChallengeAid has worked with over 1,300 UK schools promoting health and fitness in UK schools, whilst encouraging pupils to help children less fortunate than themselves overseas.
More recently ChallengeAid has been facilitating and organising thousands of adults who have been undertaking a wide variety of Challenges and various fund raising events.
One of our USP’s is that none of the money raised through sponsored challenges is used for administrative purposes.
