The Blue Sky Society is more than a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping people and animals in need; it’s a way of living. Just by thinking positively and being proactive, you are contributing to change for the better. Although we have big ideas and huge fundraising prospects, the ripple of change begins with you and me getting involved. The sky’s the limit for what we can achieve and our vision is to identify and manage various projects where people can give of their time, expertise, ideas and funds to recognized charities and support the valuable work they do. We want to connect you with causes you are passionate about and together make a genuine difference in this beautiful place we call ‘Mamma Afrika’. We strive to improve the development conditions of children in the less fortunate communities by raising funds for various projects.
