Over 32 million children of primary school age are out of school in Africa. 
By 2030, just 1 in 4 will complete the equivalent of a high school education.

Without education, hope and opportunity will bypass yet another generation.

African Orphan Educational Foundation offers disadvantaged children in Africa hope and empowerment through education.

what we do

We identify children of greatest need in the African villages we support, then identify caring individuals like you to carry their educational burdens.

how it works

Three easy steps:

1. Children at greatest risk in the African villages we serve are identified.
2. Generous supporters like you step forward and contribute financially.
3.  Our U.S. and African aid partners enroll, educate, and mentor our sponsored children. 

Together, we change the trajectory of a child’s life.

The need is great.

The reward is greater.

When Colin’s father died, his mom did her best to provide for him and his three siblings. At ten years old, he was forced to drop out of classes for weeks at a time because his school fees were not paid. He was identified by our partner agency as a child who would benefit from educational support.

A sponsor like you stepped in, and today, Colin is thriving.

He completed his secondary education and is now enrolled in post-secondary vocational school. He serves in leadership roles both on and off campus.

Your giving changes the odds and leaves a legacy.

EDUCATION IS THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON YOU CAN USE TO CHANGE THE WORLD.
