Our mission is simple. Africa Legacies Foundation stands for orphaned children and helps them thrive in real time. We’ve created a measurable, repeatable and systematic method to ensure that orphans are educated, fed, loved and safe. At the same time, we explore every avenue to reunite them with their parents or relatives, when possible. Our method:
- Provide quality nutrition, clean places to live, and suitable medical care for orphans
- Equip orphans with an education and life skills
- Raise a generation of orphans prepared to be significant contributors to their society
Our goal is for every child to live in a loving family; to become a healthy, happy, income-producing person—and experience a true sense of belonging
We give orphaned children a voice and raise awareness for them
132 Million Legacies in the Making
There are 132 million orphans in the world, according to UNICEF. Many of them live in institutional orphanages with deplorable conditions, where their most basic needs are not met. The children are often hungry, scared, confused and lonely.
Most institutional orphanages are overcrowded and dilapidated, some rife with corruption, neglect and abuse. Even when managed by people with good intentions, orphanages often lack the necessary funds, resources and knowledge to properly provide for the children in their care.
That’s why we meticulously evaluate orphanages on the 12 Rights of the Child and transition them into Centers for Excellence. This gives the children a safe, loving place to thrive until they transition to family care.
It’s time we let the world’s orphans and their caregivers know we’ve got high expectations for them. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in their lives by empowering each and every one of them to reach their full potential.
