Africa Aid believes that the first step in the road out of poverty for any community is to empower the local population to take responsibility and be accountable for their own future.
We work alongside African implementation partners that have a strong sense of their own local culture and socio-political landscape, engaging key local leaders that support the development of our programs both as they are born and as they grow. At Africa Aid, we recognize that in order to create true sustainable progress in Africa, “our” programs must truly be “their” programs from start to finish.
Africa Aid acknowledges that poverty issues are complex and interrelated, which is why we include Four-Core Programs in all community assessments: Health, Economic Empowerment, Education, and Water.
Our foreign assistance programs are prioritized to ensure that root poverty problems are addressed first. We believe that access to these four fundamental categories is a basic human right, and the combination of these programs allows us to address the major poverty issues within African communities.
A Little Can Do a Lot
At Africa Aid we believe that you don’t have to be a professor or a student of international aid to make an impact in the fight against poverty in Africa. We believe that you have the power to make a difference and we strive to make it easier for you to live your passion and your principals, everyday.
With our creative fundraising campaigns, from shopping online for textbooks to purchasing one of our t-shirts, even a little can go a long way as you join our extensive network of students and universities. We believe that innovation, from fundraising to foreign programs, is the key to empowerment both here and abroad.
