April 12th, 2021, is International Day for Street Children. Organizations across the world are recognizing this day to highlight the strength and resilience of children in street situations.
Future of Africa equips children in street situations for positive change by providing opportunities for them to become responsible citizens who transform their lives and their communities.
Our street outreach activities allow us to inspire and be inspired by children in street situations.
By embracing street residents we can help them begin the healing critical to transforming their lives.
With education, we can equip former street residents with knowledge, skills, and experiences for transformation.
Together, we can create jobs to build a brighter, stronger, and more responsible future for local communities.
inspiring a new generation
Since 2008, Future of Africa has been educating and empowering young people to become responsible change agents in their local communities.
Young people are Africa’s biggest hope for ethical leadership and socio-economic development in Africa. Now is the time to address difficult social issues that affect young people’s ability to live a life of dignity and realize their full potential.
If you want to become a part of the future, as well as a part of our family, we are always on the lookout for volunteers, or professionals with the experience and skillsets to help us move FOA forward.
Every moment a child is off the streets of Africa and in the classroom is another moment for the Future of Africa.
