Who We Are

Africare is one of the most experienced and largest African-American led non-profit international development organizations, and we are leaders in development assistance to Africa.

Since our founding in 1970, Africare has delivered more than $1 billion in assistance to tens of millions of men, women and children across the African continent.

Our almost entirely African staff has an unparalleled knowledge of the continent – its challenges and opportunities. Through our direct community engagement, we have nurtured valuable relationships with key local figures ranging from community leaders and traditional authorities to presidents and prime ministers.

Africare centers its development approach around active community participation and partners with local organizations to ensure institutional strengthening and capacity building.

Africare’s coverage is among the widest and deepest of any organization working in Africa, representing thousands of projects in 36 countries Africa-wide since inception.
