Since we started this organization in November 2016, we have successfully executed multiple initiatives which have aligned to our mission of impacting our African community (in Canada and back home) through the youth. A general overview of these can be found here.
As a non-profit organization, we rely fully on donations and grants to execute these projects. With no paid staff, our network of volunteers and the various teams also give their time for free. We are creating this campaign in an effort to raise funds for future projects, so that we can continue to solve problems and create lasting impact.
Our first project back home took place in Southern Nigeria. We provided medical equipment and machinery at no cost to a rural community, through a partnership with their local community hospital. These are now being used to address their most pressing healthcare needs. Details can be viewed here.
Now we are changing our operating model for projects back home, to make them more sustainable. We're doing this by empowering local youth with resources to tackle their own community problems through the African Impact Challenge. We have a goal of kickstarting 10 innovations across the continent by 2025, and we started with Ghana in 2020. In addition to our fund, every future donation from here will go into the costs of making this a reality.
Thank you so much as you donate to our cause. Please feel free to follow/contact us if you want to get more involved!
