Welcome to the Voices of Africa Foundation!
Our vision is to live in a just world without abject poverty. To this end, Voices of Africa will foster sustainable development in Sub Saharan through information empowerment and fair trade.
Voices of Africa Foundation was created to support grassroots change making organizations to use technology to better serve their people. Our company works by pairing local knowledge and foreign expertise for improved educational and healthcare outcomes. Healthcare extends past the walls of the hospitals in our communities. A broader approach to development is required for long term sustainable impact.
In June 2014, Voices of Africa will launch “Chez Kristo” halfway house for young homeless gentlemen to break the cycle of poverty for employable teenage men. These boys will be provided with housing, food, clothing, and education. Our greatest emphasis is on life skills development such as farming skills, how to work a job, and personal responsibility.
Our TabLab project will bring solar power and educational tablets to 5 schools in Mwanza. 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.
All of the orphans and poverty of mind in the school system stems from a lack of healthcare in the village level especially for women. Voices of Africa partners with the African Woman Alliance in providing supplies for dispensaries and testing the new Nurse Assistant Application (NAA) on tablet devices in the Magu District of Mwanza. The project is called the Woman Centered Care Project and the work is cutting edge.
To create sustainable systematic change in the field of healthcare, a continuum of care is required and we are happy to be partners with Afya Connect for Change in bringing a Healthcare Management Information System named AfyaPro to all of the district hospital level facilities in the Lake Zone of Tanzania and beyond.
All in all, we love the work we do Tanzania and we welcome you to join us anytime! Karibu sana!
