Asante Africa nonprofit programs with students

Our Programs Provide System Solutions

Brilliance and talent exist everywhere, but opportunities do not. Our model addresses the root cause of why African youth are not successful, creating an ecosystem of opportunity for them to excel. We connect disadvantaged rural youth to knowledge and opportunities, cultivating informed, resilient community leaders who address local challenges and become active participants in the global economy. 

Instrumental to all Asante Africa Foundation programs are two reputable elements; LEARN-DO-TEACH and PAY-IT-FORWARD.

Accelerating Academic and Life-Skills Development

Our program model is built using two reputable elements; LEARN-DO-TEACH and PAY-IT-FORWARD.

LEARN – DO – TEACH

“Learn-Do-Teach” methodology is a recognized educational concept. Research shows that a passive learner retains a maximum of 30% of the information. If they progress to using their hands and mind in a skill-building project, they retain 75%. If they teach their knowledge to another, they will retain and utilize around 90% of the knowledge. 

PAY IT FORWARD

Pay-it-Forward is a required element in every program and project. It is based on a replication model of supporting 3 additional individuals, and then challenging them to support 3 more people. When it is a required versus voluntary effort, young people are more confident to step forward and take action.
