Africare helps Africa. A leader among private, charitable U.S. organizations assisting Africa, Africare is also the oldest and largest African-American led organization in the field — and Africa is Africare's specialty.
Africare's programs address needs in five principal areas:
- Agriculture & Food Security
- Health, HIV & AIDS
- Water, Sanitation & Hygiene
- Women’s Empowerment
Complementing and extending our work in those focus areas, Africare supports programs in:
- Civil-Society Development & Governance
- Emergency Humanitarian Assistance
- Natural Resource Management
Africare now reaches families and communities in 19 countries in every major region of Sub-Saharan Africa, from Senegal to South Africa and from Chad to Mozambique. Since its founding in 1970, Africare has delivered more than $1 billion in assistance — over 2,500 projects — to 36 countries Africa-wide.
