In less than two weeks Africare will launch an exciting new
campaign to connect you to people overcoming major challenges impacting the African continent--
issues like unsafe drinking water, food insecurity, and the growing number of
children orphaned by AIDS.
Our new “Pass It On!” campaign
will carry these messages around the world through a series of powerful
testimonies and unique stories told directly by the individuals who see, work
with, or benefit from Africare's assistance on the ground. The stories come
from more than 20 African nations, covering a variety of key issues. They
all carry positive messages of growth and empowerment on the African continent!
Beginning September 1st, Africare will introduce you to a new story—
once a month for 16 months— from a child, grandmother or Africare staff member
who will “have something to tell you” about the important work Africare is
implementing on the ground. Each will be packaged in a format that is
ready to “pass on” to a friend or someone you know through video, social
network, and even your phone! And if you live in
you’ll see our stories on buses and in Metro stations across the city.

You'll meet inspirational people like Fatimata Yero, the first female auto mechanic in Niger, and 7-year old Esther and 9-year old David who are excelling in school despite unimaginable hardships.
This grassroots effort puts you at the heart of the campaign. Every
minute of your time spent “passing on” a story and every dollar donation to
fund a project keeps the Africare story alive! Join our cause today with
