Investing in African Communities: Our Recent Grants

We’re excited to announce our most recent grants totaling $200,610 to African community-based organizations supporting vulnerable children and families. This grant award period includes twenty grants in four African countries and one grant made to a US organization to support African organizations responding to the Ebola crisis.

Thirteen of these grants support holistic programs for children and families, six support education efforts, and two support livelihood programs.
