Who We Are
Aid for Africa is a unique alliance of some 85 U.S.-based nonprofits and their African partners working to empower children, families, and communities throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. Our grassroots programs focus on health, education, economic development, arts & culture, environmental conservation, and wildlife protection.
Aid for Africa members are all dedicated to solving the complex, inter-related challenges facing Africa. Our members realize that, as effective as they each are on their own, they can be even more powerful when they approach Africa’s issues as a group.
Together our members, with their partners on the ground in Africa, touch almost every aspect of the African community. Whether they are collecting and distributing books to school children, introducing medical strategies to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS, or identifying and supporting women’s micro-enterprise projects, Aid for Africa’s members have one thing in common—a passionate desire to help the people of Africa solve critical problems and build a better future for their children and communities.
Organizations wishing to become part of the Aid for Africa partnership must meet stringent tests of fiscal accountability, governance and programmatic impact. For more information on our eligibility requirements, please visit our Member Services/Eligibility page.
