Develop Africa is a US based 501c3 non-profit charity organization working to establish meaningful and sustainable development in Africa. Develop Africa was born from the vision that human resource development is the key to improving nation building capacity in Africa. To help achieve this vision, we are focused on a range of programs in Africa, including: education, microfinance and small business support, job skills / leadership development and training, health, and more.

We envision a future in which Africa has realized its vast human and resource potential and, through training, scholarships, investment, and partnerships, we can help Africa achieve that vision. We can help Africa become free from poverty, ignorance, and civil conflict.

We have a five-star rating on GlobalGiving and we are a winning charity of Chase Community Giving. We will stretch every dollar you donate to make the greatest difference in the lives of the people of Africa. Our premise is based on the notion that in order to change one’s personal, national or organizational status, there must be a “change in the thinking and processing pattern of the mind.” We are committed to developing Africa’s people through the promotion of transformational education, resource development, investment training and economic empowerment.

We invite you to join us in making a difference by partnering with us as an individual, family, or organization. We can all play a role in the future of Africa; with your help we can continue to change lives!
