Fill A Bottle for East Africa

Over 16 million people are facing devastating food shortages caused by sustained drought and conflict in East Africa.

Your school can help by holding a Fill A Bottle collection.

Simply sign up to download free teaching and fundraising resources. Our resources will help you explain what drought is, how it affects people’s lives, and how your collection will help. Our incredible 360 degree photo will put your pupils in the shoes of 12-year-old Daeka from East Africa.
