Asante Africa Foundation

Ensures quality holistic community-based education in East Africa by creating safe learning environments, strengthening teacher quality in the classrooms, and providing scholarships and leadership development.

Asante Africa Foundation believes in the power of knowledge as a catalyst to help young people create a future where they live their dreams. We partner with local leaders and educators in East Africa to create safe and healthy learning environments, strengthen teaching quality and enhance learning, provide merit-based scholarships, and promote leadership and entrepreneurship development.

We know that enriched minds collectively create bet­ter solutions to the challenges their communities face. Children who stay in school earn higher wages and tend to have smaller families.  Children are vaccinated, well nourished, and educated. They gain the skills to start community businesses, find their voice, and choose peaceful paths to positive change.

We believe that education spurs positive changes that ripple outward from child to community to the world.

  • Our approach is comprehensive, from access to education to paving the way for success in the classroom and beyond.
  • Our philosophy is collaborative because we know we cannot do it all and that community partnerships strengthen our programs.
  • Our values are rooted in deep respect for the communities we serve so their voices are heard first.
  • Our impact is seen in communities that are breaking barriers of all kinds, achieving academic excellence, and realizing their own potential to fuel more change.
