Hope 4 Africa, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission it is to provide the opportunity for the youth of America to partner with the youth of Africa in bringing sustainable prosperity to Africa. We strongly believe that Africa is full of hope and potential. However, without a strong educational infrastructure, it is impossible to bring an end to the disease, poverty, and instability that ravages the continent. For now, we are focused on schools, but education can be anything from vocational training to microfinancing to better agricultural practices. Quality education is the best way to ensure that future generations of Africans enjoy the peace, health, and financial success that they deserve.
Our Vision: Long-term solutions for Problems in Africa.
Having a Founder & CEO from Kenya, we know that no sustainable solutions can be imposed on Africa from abroad; only African solutions will solve African problems. Because of that, we greatly value the practice of partnership, working diligently with schools and people in Kenya to increase the quality of education. As students begin to benefit more and more from their schools, it becomes more and more likely that they will solve the various crises that plague Africa. We are growing rapidly, but our reach is still relatively small; despite that, we know that any one of the students at our partner schools who read a new textbook, learn how to operate a computer, or receive a sponsorship could be the next doctor, the next CEO, or the next president to change things in Africa for the better. That is why we do what we do.
Our Mission: To provide an opportunity to the youth of America to partner with the youth of Africa in bringing sustainable prosperity to Africa.
“Young people helping young people”- That is what Hope 4 Africa is all about. It is the youth who need to take up plans of action to impact the world. A 15 year old girl in Nakuru, Kenya, Africa never chose for her father to die early in her life and for her mother to leave her with her 2-year-old brother. She struggles to afford $15 a month to attend high school where she tops her class. This is where another 15 year old comes in: she is thousands of miles away, but is moved by that story and chooses to host a bake sale to raise money for her new friend to receive an education like the one she has received. This is one of the many stories that we want to share with others to get them excited about making a difference.
