Africare In the News

Africare currently operates in 17 African countries with approximately 1,200 staff members working across the continent and about 40 at our Headquarters in Washington, D.C. Ninety-eight percent of our staff in Africa is local, and more than 95% of our staff in Washington is African-American or African. Because so many of our employees work in remote, rural areas, we don’t frequently have an opportunity to introduce them to the public, to our donors or even to their colleagues in the U.S. But on a recent trip to the field, our Chief of Staff met with five of our field office teams working in Nigeria and Liberia, and during her visits photos were taken for the express purpose of putting a face on Africare. We are very proud of the people who work for us. In the coming year, we will begin introducing you to as many of our field staff as possible, through photos and stories about the incredible work they’re doing. These people are Africare, and they are responsible for implementing the work Africare was founded to do. They are improving lives and building futures!
