10th Anniversary Celebrations

In December we host 100+ young people from East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda) who will deepen their skills in creating jobs in their home communities, enterprise development, entrepreneurship, leadership, and job readiness while being a positive ethical leader in their community.

For the first time in Asante Africa’s history the African teams and the USA team are challenging each other to match dollar for dollar raised. For every dollar they raise, we match it and currently they are ahead.

Help us achieve our $25,000 challenge match. Match Ends August 31, 2017






Join us for Happy Hour and networking with Asante Africa Foundation!

We'll be sharing our recently released 2016 Impact Report and are hoping to create a space for like-minded international development individuals (especially in the education field!) to come discuss and network. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about Asante Africa Foundation; we will also discuss, one-on-one and in small groups, the idea of Paying it Forward and recent data from our studies. Or just come by for drink.

Drinks available for purchase from Somar, 15% of which will be donated to our organization - Light snacks provided by Asante Africa Foundation.

We’ve unleashed the power of a generation that has started to take charge and lead, but many are hungry for the opportunity to do the same. We challenge ourselves to build on what we’ve accomplished and to take action in support of another generation that is eager for their chance to create change.
