African Child Matters supports grassroots organizations that help local kids lead healthier, more productive lives. We invest in a variety of projects, but place special emphasis on education, especially for orphans and children living in extreme poverty.
In Ethiopia and Kenya, we finance programs for thousands of homeless children, kids victimized by poverty, war.
In Ghana, we offer science scholarships to orphaned girls with a talent for math and science, but who lack the resources to pursue high quality education.
And in Kenya, we support girls fleeing female genital mutilation and provide them with the opportunity to go school, start a business or learn a trade.
Each of our programs is guided by the belief is that Africa’s future rests with its children and that projects developed and run by local communities produce long-term results.
