Aid for Africa Launches New Web Site

Today, Aid for Africa announces the launch of its new web site. We hope this site will be a resource for those looking to support the causes – clean water, sustainable agricultural development, and the health of women and children, and others — that are so crucial to Sub Saharan Africa’s growth and prosperity.

Whether it is Access Africa, which provide bicycles to AIDS workers in countries such as Ghana and Senegal, or the Maasai Girls Education Fund, which provides scholarships for the Maasai girls of East Africa, whose alternative is early marriage, our members are on the ground, making a difference through hands-on programs and support.

Aid for Africa is the first organization to bring together independent U.S.-based nonprofits focused exclusively on supporting programs in Africa itself. Their work ranges across health, education, development, arts and culture, conservation, and wildlife protection, all within Africa. This site will connect you with an incredible assortment of organizations and causes. You’ll find Africa Fighting Malaria, a group researching and advocating for effective malaria control practices, along with the Museum for African Art, which is focused on building understanding and appreciation of African art and culture. Yet another, the Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project, is providing veterinary care for the highly endangered mountain gorillas of east-central Africa. The Cows for Kids program, supported by The Boma Fund, has delivered 900 livestock to needy families, with priority given to widows with young children.

Aid for Africa believes that partnership through a comprehensive approach bringing together nonprofits and their African counterparts to help solve the inter-related challenges facing Africa can be an effective agent of change and development throughout the continent. Aid for Africa serves as a learning hub where these nonprofits can share best practices and as an efficient mechanism for raising funds for their work, allowing members to focus on the delivery of their services and maximizing their effectiveness.

I invite you to join Aid for Africa and our members, such as Partners in Health, World Hope International, Books for Africa, and our other members in supporting those on the ground in Africa, working to make a difference every day.
