Host a Fundraiser

Adopt Tostan as your charity of choice in your school, church, community group or business. Organizing a fundraiser or event will allow you to be a catalyst for positive social change in your community. As you share your passion for human rights and community-led development, you can inspire others to support our work in West Africa and enable more communities to create their own successes.
