The African Impact Foundation works to implement long-term, positive change in the lives of individuals, families and communities in Africa. Their commitment to ‘Educate, Enrich and Empower’ points to the main areas of focus: Education and Enrichment, Health and Nutrition, Empowering Families, The Girl Impact and Conservation. They recognize the importance of identifying and fully understanding the unique needs of each community in order to effectively and sustainably address them. To this end, they limit their reach to a smaller number of communities, enabling the charity to concentrate efforts on building trust, nurturing lasting relationships and ensuring the sustainability of their involvement in each community.
The communities the Foundation works with often lack access to education, health services, nutritious food or safe places to play. Without these basic necessities it is difficult for individuals and families to feel empowered, or to better themselves. Making a meaningful impact in these communities can take the form of providing access to education and health services, improving nutrition or creating a safe environment where children can play and learn.
