About Africa Bridge

Location:

17600 Pacific Highway, PO Box 115, Marylhurst, OR 97036, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to listen to Tanzanian children and empower their communities to protect, support and care for orphaned and vulnerable children through integrated sustainable development

Description

Africa Bridge works in isolated rural villages in Tanzania, where the incidence of HIV/AIDS is high and children are vulnerable due to poverty and loss of parents.

We form village-based committees; members develop skills needed to identify and support vulnerable children.

Families caring for vulnerable children are organized into income-generating farm cooperatives; members receive seedlings, animals, training and support.

Small business training and start-up capital grants are provided to spark new business endeavors.

Many types of training are provided to improve health and nutrition, skiils and awareness of legal rights.

Africa Bridge completes projects in 5 years, leaving sustainable gains and stronger villages.
