Fall is finally here, and with it we are excited to announce Asante Africa Foundation’s The Journey to 2020 — The Future is Closer than You Think — an event to celebrate our journey of transforming 1 Million lives by 2020. We invite you to join us on Saturday, October 22nd from 6–9pm at the David Brower Center in Berkeley to celebrate our history and look toward a bright future!
This event is particularly significant as we recall the beginnings of Asante Africa Foundation. We have come a long way since we were first established in 2006 by our founders Erna Grasz, Emmy Moshi, and Hellen Nkuraiya. What began as a two-village project has expanded to over 40 partnerships (and counting) with schools in 35+ villages in Kenya and Tanzania. We are ecstatic to continue our work in reaching 1 Million lives by 2020!
At the event, you will have opportunity to meet two alumni from our organization: Carolyne Sunte, a young entrepreneur and mentor from Maasai, and Samson Nyongesa, the founder of “Life Transformers”, a leadership organization with over 300 university youth across 3 campuses who have impacted over 5000 young lives in the last 4 years (To know more about Life Transformers and their efforts click here).
Both alumni will be traveling all the way from Kenya to talk about the impact Asante Africa has had on their lives and how they are using their own experience to impact the lives of others.
At The Journey to 2020 event, we are also incredibly lucky to have African musician, Piwai performing live! Piwai is known for her catchy, genre fusing melodies and exotically mystifying sounds.
There will also be a Live Auction, Local Artwork, Traditional Food and a Wine Bar! There are so many reasons to come out to celebrate with us on October 22 — we hope you will be there!
Be sure to RSVP on or before October 14th to save your spot! You can buy your tickets on
