Why your generosity matters...

By donating, you’ll be supporting our efforts to minimize poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa through supporting the advancement of education. Your donations will support our backpack distribution program, where hundreds of students will receive a backpack full of school supplies to promote a better educational experience.

Mail in donations can be sent by selecting the “Offline Donation” option on the form.

If you want your donation to go directly to supporting a student’s school fees, you can sign up to sponsor a student for the year. Visit our Sponsor a Student page for more information.
