They Can Do It… You Can Help.
The Micro-Credit Project
Africa We Care announces the launch of a new project which provides small loans (as little as $50) to African business people (many of them women), enabling them to earn a living, expand their cottage industries (and in the process, employ others), and provide valuable services to their local communities.
Read more about the Micro-Credit Project and get involved. It’s a win-win partnership!
(100% of the donations we receive go to our projects dedicated to the alleviation of suffering in Africa. At Africa We Care, self-sustaining is not only the bedrock of our projects – it is our modus operandi. Our administrative overhead is not covered by the donations we receive, but by the productive economic activities we undertake.)
A SINGLE GIFT of $50, $75, $100 or more will go a long way to empower the impoverished people of Africa; by making gainful productive economic activities possible; enable the people of Africa to regain their basic human dignity; have their self esteem restored; take charge of their lives; and take care of their children and families.
Mail your tax-deductible donation today to our address provided below. We will thank you with an Africa We Care T-shirt.
A MONTHLY DONATION would make you an honoured Friend of Africa We Care, and would go a long way to alleviate the suffering in Africa. You can designate the project to which your donation will go.

CORPORATE DONATION. Africa We Care appeals to corporate bodies and organizations to assist us in our quest to alleviate suffering in Africa as we implement solutions to the systematic factors that have lent themselves to the perpetuation of a vicious cycle. Africa We Care is built on a concept that makes sound economic and business sense, thereby lending itself to a charitable organization of choice for corporation and companies. With a donation of $100 or more, Africa We Care will list your name and link on our website.
MAJOR GIFTS AND DONATIONS. Africa We Care has an urgent and pressing need for a cargo or cube van. We need this van to pick up donations. We are earnestly soliciting for either a donation-in-kind (a van); or cash donation that would enable us to purchase the van.
