Core Projects

Education: Give Back Africa Foundation believes in the phrase “Knowledge is Power” because we believe individuals make better decisions and choices in life when they are well informed. The literacy level in Africa is below the international average, and we have a commitment to educate our children, who are mostly on the streets due to a lack of resources, guidance, and conducive learning environments. It is sad to see those of us in the developed world take the opportunities that we have for granted.

Community Playgrounds for Kids (CP4K) is an initiative to provide an atmosphere for children to enjoy their cherished childhood moments in a welcoming environment and to promote wellness and healthy lifestyles among African children. CP4K is part of a comprehensive program intended to encourage and educate children about the benefits of healthy life and the consequences of childhood obesity. Most importantly, several studies show that increased activity in children leads to higher learning rate. Read more on CP4K

Malaria: Malaria continues to be the single most deadly disease in Sub-Saharan Africa. Statistics show that in Sub-Saharan Africa, a child dies of malaria every 30 seconds. The healthcare and economic burden malaria places on families and fragile economies in Africa are enormous.

Give Back Africa Foundation was formed with the mission that minimizing the impact of malaria on children and women in Africa is the single most important investment of our lifetime.

Potable Drinking Water: The rate at which water-borne diseases and other preventable infectious diseases continues to afflict our communities is alarming.

It is estimated that close to 20,000 deaths and many more cases of cholera occur each year due to a lack of potable drinking water. A report published recently in the medical journal The Lancet concluded that poor water sanitation and a lack of safe drinking water take a greater human toll than war, terrorism and weapons of mass destruction combined. According to an assessment commissioned by the United Nations, 4,000 children die each day as a result of diseases caused by ingestion of filthy water. The report says four out of every 10 people in the world, particularly those in Africa and Asia, do not have clean water to drink.
