Karibu! Welcome!

Welcome to the Voices of Africa Foundation!

 

Mission Statement

It is our mission to empower impoverished women and youth to improve their communities sustainably through the use of innovative and cutting edge information and communications technology
and fair trade income generation.

The Voices of Africa Foundation was created to support grassroot change makers and organizations to use technology to better serve their people. Our social enterprise company and charity work by pairing local knowledge and foreign expertise for improved quality of life, educational and healthcare outcomes.

Healthcare extends past the walls of the hospitals and education is about more than school buildings. A broader approach to development is required for long term sustainable impact. We believe in sustainable development, empowerment through charity and good works, and change.

All of our profits are re-invested directly in charity…

Voices of Africa runs “Chez Kristo” halfway house for young homeless gentlemen age 8-18 to break the cycle of poverty. These boys are provided with housing, food, clothing, and education. Our greatest emphasis is life skills development such as farming skills, how to work a job, and personal responsibility. On any given day there are between 15-20 boys resident at Chez Kristo relying on our organization for all of their needs.

Our educational partnership with SchoolAid UK will allow us to build libraries in 10 schools in Tanzania. Five schools have been selected in Kigamboni, Dar es Salaam and five in Mwanza. Coming soon, our TabLab project will bring solar power and educational tablets to schools in Tanzania. These schools are sorely in need of book and other materials. We work under the premise that an empty mind leads to an empty stomach and are using technology to begin to bridge the gap.

Voices of Africa Foundation also provides pro bono consulting services to small organizations working to do good for women, children, youth, and the handicapped in East Africa. For larger organizations, we offer a sliding fee scale through our sister company registered in Kenya, eMagine Development Consulting.

All in all, we love the work we do in East Africa and we welcome you to join us anytime!

Karibu sana!
