“Changing Africa Through Education”

Initiative For a Better Africa is a non-profit organization founded to take a unique approach to battle illiteracy, poverty, hunger, corruption and diseases throughout Africa. Our Vision is to change Africa through education. If the African population is educated, we believe that Africa will achieve things that our ancestors could only dream of. The basis of the developed world is the development of people to become morally capable, law-abiding citizens who have dreams and the means to achieve them. Africa is not so far off, but we believe that for Africa to get to a developed state, the foundations must be grounded in reason, principles, values, and a general appreciation of the dignity of each and every person. This foundation can only be achieved through the education of each and every person born and raised in Africa.


Our mission is to emphasize the importance of education, empower African youths and build connections between students. We believe it is important to celebrate the connections that first and second-generation students in the United States have to students in Africa and unite them with the shared mission of empowering each other. Our goal is to improve the quality of education for the youth of Africa for them to change their communities and make a meaningful impact across borders. 

We want to improve the education students are receiving by supplying school supplies, training and developing teachers, building modern educational infrastructures that can rival schools in developed countries, creating and implementing educational programs that challenge students and position them to compete with international students at the highest levels, supporting education for girls and students with disabilities, and achieving tuition-free education for all students in our partner schools.

We believe that all of these initiatives will ready the next generation of Africans to make the revolutionary changes needed to better Africa.
