The Cause

In almost all the African countries, the preponderance of economic activities is carried out by women. By and large, women are the traders in the market; they are also the farmers. They are the homemakers — the heart and soul of the family. The activities they juggle are impoverished and subsistent.

A five dollar credit made available to a market woman would go a long way to augment her meager articles of merchandise, make her farm better, enhance her profit margin and enable her to feed her family more than one meal a day.

Draught has ravaged Africa for the past several years. It has been blamed for a lot of the maladies that beset the continent. Irrigation is easily achieved through boreholes, submersible solar-powered pumps and a few miles of garden hose. It would cost less than $2000 to accomplish a simple feat like this — giving new life to a whole village.

With better and more modern tools, this carpenter could be more productive and would be able to employ all the able-bodied young men standing idly by.

This is a sewing institute for young women. With more and better sewing machines, more young women would be trained, given employment and a chance at a better life.

These are but a few examples of empowering Africa — one village, one community at a time.

What Africa needs is a hand-up and not a hands-down.

Africa We Care is dedicated to helping Africans extricate themselves from the vicious cycle. We do not want to give them of our wealth — we want to help them accumulate their own. We do not want to take care of their children — we want to make it possible for them to take care of their own families. It is the vision of Africa We Care to make a reality the age old adage:

Teach a beggar to fish and feed him forever.

This is the raison d’etre — The Cause for Africa We Care.
