Our Mission

A is for Africa is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization committed to improving the safety, well being and prosperity of the children of Tanzania by working directly with local communities to increase access to education.  It was started out of a belief that there are local leaders on the ground making a difference already and with a little bit more support, they could be helping even more children in their communities live safer, healthier, more productive and happier lives.  And ultimately, that's what it is all about.

We work with local organizations that we have personally met and have a relationship with.  We have visited them in Africa, stepped inside their clinics, libraries and classrooms.  We have met their families.  All of the pictures on the website were taken on our trips to the Arusha region of Tanzania.

Our Daily Life

Yes, it’s been 10 years since we began working with Maasai Wanderings, our in country partner, to improve the lives of Maasai children in the Lemanyata area outside of Arusha, Tanzania. Your support has enhanced the lives of these children in measurable and immeasurable ways.

Taking a slightly different approach, we decided to tell the story of how A is for Africa (AIFA) touches their lives from the moment they arrive at school until they depart for home.
