99 Day Challenge

1X your Donation = 2X Youth Empowered


What is the “99 Day Challenge”?

Every dollar counts! 5 donors have generously offered to support a dollar-for-dollar match, meaning every dollar you donate will be doubled and make twice the impact. Your gift plus the match contributes to the $50,000 target.

The Match is a fundraising challenge, in support of Asante Africa’s 4 programs, which empower young girls, arm youth with life and career skills, support and train teachers, and send children to school. The aim of the match is to provide 21st Century learning skills to rural East Africa youth, teachers, and children.

The match will run June 17 – Sept 24 2019. With your contribution we will be able to reach more lives across rural East Africa and prepare them for a future they can be proud of.
