When we started The Africa Project, we believed that a small group of people working together could make a meaningful difference in the lives of children affected by extreme poverty and AIDS. Our journey began after we saw The Orphans of Nkandla. From there, a movement grew. First, as individual conversations revealing shared interest in and concern for a world far, far away. Then, twelve gathered in a living room on a Saturday morning and The Africa Project was born. Like many who venture down this path, when we began, we were not sure what to do or how to help, so we asked questions and we listened. Over the past twelve years, we have learned many lessons, some harder than others, and together, we have made that difference.
