Mission Statement

Orphans Africa is a non-profit organization in the United States dedicated to the education of orphans and the empowerment of widows in Africa. We coordinate volunteer services and microloans, raise funds, and provide essential supplies to our international field partners in Tanzania. Our vision is a world without poverty in which all persons have the freedom and opportunities to pursue happiness and maximize their potential.

Description

Orphans Africa (OA) is a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt charitable organization that began in 2007 with the coming together of three ordinary people whose desire was to build peace between nations by providing assistance to those who are most vulnerable. Together they traveled to Tanzania where malaria and the AIDS epidemic has left victims of all ages. Over 3.1 million children have been orphaned. Widows have lost their husbands and desire opportunities to support themselves and their children. Working hand-in-hand with grassroots non-governmental organizations in Tanzania, OA provides the orphans with education and basic necessities, and provides the widows with the training and opportunities they need to become self-sufficient. We believe that by educating children, we are bringing hope, not only to today, but to the future.
