To collectively work with local and international communities to support and empower children and youth through volunteer activities, intercultural exchange and sustainable development initiatives for the benefit of present and future generations.
Afro Edge is a project established in 2012 to mobilize international volunteers to support community development initiatives. Our aim is to promote new insights of the world and collective social responsibility, cultivate leadership and organizational skills, improve communication and problem solving skills, and improve the capability to work efficiently with different cultures. We seek to increase volunteers’ spheres of knowledge of cultural diversity and respect for others. We believe that every human being has to do their part in making the world a better place by encouraging international volunteering. We envision a world in which all people despite age, race, sex or religion champion volunteerism to promote equality towards ending global challenges.
We run a wide array of projects and have supported the construction of more than 32 classroom blocks in rural Victoria Falls, 3000 young people reached on HIV/AIDS education, sending 71 children to school and establishment of community gardens to curb nutrition challenges faced in the region. Volunteers are essential in the work we do as they cover gaps that are usually difficult to close as a result of scarcity of resources. We have built skills, capacities and a network of active supporters, and have gained a solid reputation in our programming. Afro Edge is committed to best business practices and fundamental principles of transparency, integrity and accountability. We nurture our own management style, typified by an open culture of trust, innovation and creativity.
