Awards and Recognition

For its efforts to educate and empower the next generation, Asante Africa has earned various awards and achieved international recognition. While we have been recognized for our work in promoting and sustaining girls’ education and advancing gender equality, many of our team members- the backbone of our organization- have been honored for their work in bringing education and opportunity to youth in rural East Africa. We are humbled by these awards and more motivated more than ever to push for success.
