Africare works to improve the quality of life of the people in Africa.
What We Do
Africare is a registered 501(c)(3) with corporate headquarters in Washington, DC and offices in 14 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. As the largest and most experienced international NGO operating exclusively in Africa, since 1970, Africare has partnered with local communities, NGOs, governments, academia, and the private sector to advance our mission of improving the quality of life of people in Africa. With over 45 years of experience, in large-scale multi-sectoral project management in 35 African countries, our core expertise and technical specialties include Nutrition, Agriculture and Food Security, Health (HIV/AIDS and MNCH), Humanitarian Assistance, and Youth and Women's Empowerment. To ensure sustainability and foster prosperity we collaborate with local organizations to transfer skills and best practices as our philosophy has always been "There are no Africare programs, only African programs." Africare is endorsed by Charity Navigator and the American Institute of Philanthropy Charity Watch.
