2021 Lives Reached: 166,890

The adversities of 2020 drove many innovations. 2021 gave us the opportunity to put these innovations into practice with deeper learning and new ideas to impact East Africa’s youth.

In 2021, Asante Africa Foundation’s partnerships with county and district officials, implementing partners, and co-funders embraced these innovations. The youth of East Africa worked together to create life-changing impacts. Using our collective strengths, we continue to walk beside young people as they develop skills, voice, and choice at each stage of their lives. With your support, we will impact 1,600,000 young lives by 2025.

This year, we expanded our reach into new communities and launched several new initiatives aimed at supporting the holistic development of our students. Our goal is to provide access to quality education and equip youth with the skills and knowledge they need to break the cycle of poverty and achieve gender equality.

Our data-informed approach to education has led to high retention rates, with students achieving positive outcomes via academic and life skill development, increased literacy, higher graduation rates, and lower instances of early marriage.

Empowering the Youth of East Africa

Quality education and life skills are essential for healthy development. We utilize innovative teaching methods to equip African youth to succeed in their future careers and lives.

Data-informed and child-centered learning environments are at the core of our work. We strive to educate and uplift youth to acquire the skills, knowledge, and experience to pursue meaningful opportunities.

Our programs in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda are designed to have a lasting impact on the communities we serve. By supporting African girls and youth’s education and personal growth, we are working to break the cycle of poverty and achieve gender equality.

Together, we are reshaping the landscape of global education and access to quality education. Join us in empowering the next generation of leaders in East Africa!


Measuring our Impact

As a data-driven organization, we rigorously monitor the effectiveness of every program, project, and pilot that we implement to learn and iterate on our work. Our focus on quality and sustainability ensures that we are always adapting to the ever-changing needs of the communities we serve.

Beyond Education

Providing access to quality education is just the beginning when also combating systemic issues of gender-based violence, early marriage, and early motherhood. Our holistic, youth-centered model focuses on girls’ advancement and leadership development, where youth learn practical skills to succeed in school and life. Our programs support our students’ physical, mental, and emotional well-being by creating access to health services, financial literacy training, and social-emotional learning opportunities.

Paying it Forward

An essential part of our work is empowering youth to become agents of change in their communities. Through our Pay-it-Forward action plan initiative, students who have benefitted from our programs are encouraged to share knowledge, start small businesses, and create income streams for the community.

In 2021, Pay-it-Forward initiatives reached more than 80,000 young lives across three countries, exemplifying how acts of transformational education become contagious.
