Giving Tuesday 2020

Giving Tuesday 2020 – Global Day of Giving

As the season of Thanksgiving approaches, let loose your unbridled generosity and help Asante Africa Foundation unleash the potential in East Africa. Giving Tuesday, 2020 is a global day dedicated to charitable giving. We are expanding our programs to help young girls by increasing access to education, life skills training, and peer support.

Let’s Unwrap Kipuyo’s Potential this #GivingTuesday

Kipuyo Girl in East Africa

The cultural norms in rural East Africa put young women at risk. Early marriage, FGM, and teenage pregnancy take away the ability for girls like Kipuyo to live a life that they choose. Kipuyo is one of many young women whose lives have been transformed by Asante Africa Foundation.

Our programs have enabled Kipuyo to exercise her fundamental right to an education and learn about sexual and reproductive health, human rights, and to develop financial literacy. This education has empowered her to stay in school and escape early marriage and sexual/physical abuse. She is now on a path to fulfill her own life dreams.

Asante Africa programs are designed to reach rural and underserved girls like Kipuyo and empower them to change their lives and pursue their dreams. 

Help young women like Kipuyo with Your Giving Tuesday 2020 donation.
