Get Involved

There are a number of ways for you to be involved in bringing transformation to local communities in Southern Africa through the work of E3’s partner projects. 

How to give

There are many ways to give to E3, including one-off and regular donations, supporting a child through Back to School and buying a Gift of Hope for a birthday or Christmas present. Find out more about How to give.

Celebration Gifts – mark your birthday or other special event with a fundraiser

Gifts of Hope – presents that make a difference

When you give a gift of hope to a relative or friend for 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. You will receive a printed E3 greetings card containing details of the gift you have bought for you to personalise and give to the recipient. Buy a Gift of Hope


Prayer is vital as we look to God for guidance and inspiration in all areas of E3’s work and praying for E3’s partners on a regular basis can bring you closer to the people on the ground who are doing the hard work, training local pastors and responding to poverty and HIV and AIDS in their communities.

Prayer is an essential way of supporting our partners on a regular basis. We hope that as E3 empowers grassroots churches to share the gospel in word and action, the work will be a living example of God’s love for all people.

We would love to keep you informed of E3 prayer news. You can sign up to our fortnightly prayer email.

TrevorTrevor Finlay, Managing Director of Vision Asset Finance, visited some of E3’s partners in Nairobi, Kenya in 2006 and is now involved in the work of E3 in a variety of ways, including serving as Chair of our Board of Trustees. He says:

“It is my personal hope that many more companies and businesses will support this vital work. Through E3, you have the opportunity to empower local people to transform their communities through the mission of the church. I saw first-hand the amazing work that small grassroots churches can do if they are given encouragement and support to get started”.
