Mission Statement

Asante Africa Foundation, Inc. is an East African Children's Education Fund. We are a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to providing quality education to children in East Africa. Every child deserves an education and the opportunity to choose their future, regardless of the latitude or longitude in which they are born. Through education, every child can make their dreams a reality, help their families struggle less, and help their communities become self sustaining. Our Vision We envision African communities and families in which the children have the opportunity to received QUALITY education to define their futures. Our Mission Quality Education will be made available by providing physical infrastructures for all children attending school, providing teaching resources and educational materials and scholarships/sponsorships for highly motivated and academically gifted children.

Description

We form partnerships with African communities and work with passionate local program managers who are deeply committed to creating change in their African villages. We envision African communities and families in which children have the opportunity to receive QUALITY education to define their futures. Generous contributions from Asante Africa Foundation donors bring these dreams to life.

Local villagers define their needs for achieving quality education, through infrastructures for all children attending school (such as construction of schools and sanitation facilities, serving a daily meal), providing teaching resources and educational materials, and funding scholarships / sponsorship for highly motivated and academically gifted children.

Asante is the Swahili word for thank you. We are thankful to be active members of the communities we serve and we are grateful to our donors who fund projects that bring opportunity, choice and possibility to African villages.

I love working with Asante Africa. A great group of talented individuals that encourage you to grow and learn. I completely support the mission to educate children in East Africa, and love how they focus on empowering girls and youth to follow their dreams. I have learnt a great deal of new things, and have been able to grow my skills in graphic design and marketing.

I've been volunteering at Asante Africa Foundation for the past 6 months and I've been loving it. After the very first day when I met the CEO, Erna who has introduced me to the story of this nonprofit, I felt blessed for the opportunity. Being a volunteer at Asante Africa Foundation is more than getting a great view in your resume or opening a door for a job, is the chance that you have to change a bit of the world. I love the team and appreciate all the help giving to me. I have grown professionally and personally. Thank you, AAF.
