The Africa Project has identified four priority areas to focus on as we strive to direct resources to programs that improve the lives of children.
Support The Africa Project
As an all-volunteer nonprofit, we direct 100% of the funds we receive from our donors to support programs and services in South Africa. We also work directly with those we fund to ensure that the resources meet the needs of the community they serve. Finally, members of The Africa Project travel to South Africa frequently, so we see first hand how our resources are used.
