Aid for Africa is a unique partnership of U.S.-based charities and their African partners dedicated to helping children, families, and communities throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. Our grassroots programs focus on health, education, economic development, arts & culture, conservation, and wildlife protection in Africa.

Member Highlight:
Generation Rwanda

Generation Rwanda is dedicated to helping orphans and other socially vulnerable young people in Rwanda pursue a university education and ultimately become leaders in fostering economic development and social reconciliation. The group just changed its name from Orphans of Rwanda to Generation Rwanda to reflect its focus on building the dynamic talent pool that will transform Rwanda in the long-term.
