Friends of Africa International

Conserves and protects African wildlife, environment, and culture. Supports Save the Elephants, Jane Goodall’s “Roots and Shoots” children's project, and the Mount Kenya Trust. Supports African arts and culture programs.

For more than 20 years, Friends of Africa International has supported effective and established charitable organizations, research centers, and projects in Africa that focus on the conservation and protection of African wildlife and its habitat.  Through education, financial aid, and volunteer coordination, we strive to put a spotlight on  needs and support solutions to help eliminate them.

Friends of Africa International supports and partners with grassroots African organizations such as Save the Elephants, the Mount Kenya Trust, and the African Conservation Foundation.  Kenya’s Save the Elephants works to secure the future for elephants and sustain the beauty and ecology integrity of where they live.  The African Conservation Foundation works to protect and conserve Africa’s endangered wildlife and their habitats, including the sea turtles and the Nigerian-Cameroon chimpanzees. Activities range from delivering Elephant radio collars for research, supporting anti-poaching programs, purchasing grain for a remote village during a drought, to providing barbed wire fencing to a school garden project.

In the United States, Friends of Africa organizes seminars, lectures, and other events in for its partners, as well as Africa-centered cultural and educational initiatives.  Friends of Africa also supports humanitarian projects in Africa, ranging from providing medical supplies and refurbishing schools.
