Mission Statement

AfricAid is a nonprofit organization that supports girls’ education in Africa in order to provide young women with the opportunity to transform their own lives and the futures of their communities.


Vision: To provide young African women with the opportunity to transform their own lives and the futures of their communities through thoughtfully crafted and executed educational programs that reach, teach and empower girls.

Why Support Girls’ Education and Leadership in Sub-Saharan Africa?

The importance of educating women has become almost axiomatic. Research increasingly demonstrates the significant benefits that an education brings to women, and to society in general: educated girls are three times less likely to contract HIV/AIDS; the children of African mothers with five years of education have a 40% better chance of living to age five; and an extra year of secondary school boosts girls’ eventual wages by 20-25%.[1]

AfricAid's Initiatives

AfricAid’s Model

REACH: Providing girls in Africa the basic opportunity to go to school.

TEACH:Supporting African girls in achieving their potential while in the classroom.

EMPOWER: Training young African women to become community, business and non-profit leaders who mentor and train the next generation of young women.

AfricAid engages Tanzanian students in a powerful cycle of Reaching, Teaching and Empowering that is changing lives across the country.

AfricAid supports this powerful cycle through its programmatic focus on providing scholarships, supporting teacher training, and its innovative girls’ leadership training program, the Kisa Project.
