We build structures and services to facilitate access to healthcare and education that support quality of life and the wellbeing of people in rural communities, which ultimately helps to underpin economic development.
Africa Foundation supports the health and wellbeing of the communities with which we work by providing support to clinics and health centers, and providing better access to safe water.
Our health assistance consists of:
- Infrastructure support to clinics and health centres, including building accommodation for staff, safe ablutions facilities, rooms and other structural needs, and refurbishments and upkeep.
- Provision of health and medical equipment for clinics
- Drilling of boreholes for schools, creches, clinics and communities to improve access to water.
- Provision of HIPPO WATER ROLLERS to vulnerable community members for improved access to water.
In remote rural communities, schools are often overlooked and chronically under resourced – owing mostly to governments that are typically over-committed. Africa Foundation has made school development and improvement a priority since the organisation was founded.
Active in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Tanzania and Kenya, we have to date built over 200 classrooms. Our school support does not end with classrooms. We support schools to develop the complete infrastructure required to optimise the learning opportunities of young people.
Our assistance enables schools to:
- Serve nutritious meals to students, through the provision of equipped kitchens and dining halls.
- Create a healthy hygienic learning environment with the addition of ablutions and Enviro Loos.
- Offer the best quality of teaching through the provision of on-site accommodation for teachers, and admin blocks for lesson preparation and staff training.
- Encourage children to remain enrolled at school, despite numerous barriers, such as socio-economic pressures at home, and long distances to walk, by providing on-site boarding facilities.
- Deliver the curriculum to a high standard, and prepare students well for the job market, by supporting the development of science labs and media centres at high schools.
We have numerous health and education projects taking place at any time. You can support the projects that are closest to your heart by indicating to us the country you are most interested in, or the education level, and we will work with you to ensure that your donation reaches a project that you are passionate about. Currently we are fundraising for Solar installation at the Benguerra Clinic. Should you wish to donate towards this project please use 'Beguerra Solar' as your reference.
*Please note that if you are in the USA or UK it may be more beneficial for you to donate via Africa Foundation (USA) OR Africa Foundation (UK) for tax purposes - donations through this portal will be received directly to Africa Foundation based in South Africa.
