What We Do

Refurbishing Schools

The American Foundation for African Children's Education works directly with local African organizations to provide a suitable learning environment for underprivileged children. We do this by Rehabilitating existing schools, and we even build new ones.

The schools we refurbish, as showcased above, are common in many small towns and villages in Africa. We have many similar projects across the continent.

These children need us to keep their dreams of attaining good careers alive! Helping them reach this goal is the reason for AFACE's existence.

Distributing Supplies

School supplies are integral tools to a child's education. AFACE supports primary schools in underprivileged African communities by contributing various materials to enhance the classroom experience for children.

All supplies AFACE donates to primary schools are funded by the contributions we receive from our sponsors. Moreover, all donations are used solely towards projects for underprivileged children's educational betterment.

Enabling Youth

Education is one of the most powerful tools to not only reduce poverty and inequality, but also lay a foundation for economic growth.

Many children in Africa get some form of schooling but, a large number of them do not complete their education because some families cannot afford to continue sending their children to school and paying for basic school supplies.

According to the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, Africa has the lowest primary education completion ratio in the world. In fact, about 62% of African students complete primary education, in comparison to 94% in North America, 90% in Europe, and 88% in Asia.

Our Mission

We strive to build new primary school buildings, renovate existing classrooms, and provide school supplies for underprivileged children in Africa, in order to aid Africa's youth in attaining a better quality education.
