Mission Statement

Develop Africa is a 501c3 non-profit organization working to establish meaningful and sustainable development in Africa. Develop Africa was birthed out of the vision that human resource development is the key to improving nation building capacity in Africa. Develop Africa is involved in a range of programs in Africa supporting education, microfinance and small businesses, job skills / leadership development training etc.


Develop Africa's strategic mandate is to raise a new generation of African leaders by focusing on the human capital aspect of development.

Through training, scholarship, investment and partnerships with NGO's Develop Africa is committed to developing Africa's resources and its vulnerable and poor people through the promotion of transformational education, resource development, investment training, and strategic empowerment. Our premise is based on the notion that in order to change one's personal, national, or organizational status there must necessarily be a change in the thinking and processing pattern of the mind

I worked with Develop Arica for two months as part of my Summer of Service as a Bonner Scholar. The people that make Develop Africa possible were what I enjoyed most about my experience. The team at Develop Africa takes the initiative in changing lives, demonstrating integrity and honesty. They are innovators who overcome obstacles and expectations in order to solve the world’s societal and ecological problems. They are inspiring people who help provide education for children who would otherwise lack the opportunity to obtain it. The team at Develop Africa are not only caring, and compassionate but are also witty and funny, guaranteed to put a smile on your face and make you laugh. If you love listening to hilarious stories while helping make a change, Develop Africa is right for you. I loved working with Develop Africa this summer, and I hope to work with them again in the future.
