We would like to invite you to consider being a sponsor for Develop Africa.  Develop Africa is a 501c3 non-profit organization working to establish meaningful and sustainable development in Africa.  Develop Africa was birthed out of the vision that human resource development is the key to improving nation building capacity in Africa.   We have many different programs and partnership levels.   Together we can help change lives in Africa!

Supporting a non-profit is a great way:

  • to elevate your profile

  • develop your public relations

  • increase your business.

Additionally, supporting a non-profit provides tremendous opportunities for fun, morale-boosting activities that give staff and customers the ‘feel-good factor’.

 

Donor/Partner Opportunities:

There are several ways you can help – from small, one-off activities to long-term, mutually-beneficial partnerships. Here are a few current opportunities:

  • Make Develop Africa your company / organization 'Charity of the Year', and get all your staff involved in campaigning and fundraising activities.

  • Sponsor an African child's education or apprenticeship.

  • Pay for a village school to be built

  • Donate sports or school equipment.

  • Sponsor our publicity materials, merchandise or website.

  • Equip a computer lab

  • Pay for shipping of a container of books, school supplies, computers etc

  • Provide seed money for small businesses; sponsor microfinance projects

  • Set up an Employer's Matching Gift program. Develop Africa is a tax-exempt charitable organization eligible to receive Matching Gifts. Some companies will provide a 100% match, doubling the value of your gift. Applying for a corporate Matching Gift is easy. Some corporate intranet sites allow employees to apply directly online. Others provide forms that can be printed out and mailed. If you can't find the link on your company web site, then check with your HR department.

     

Education is the key to unlocking the golden door of freedom for all in Africa.   It is the bedrock of social and economic development.  Sponsorships will enable Develop Africa to purchase school supplies and computers and to provide scholarships.

Health- Malaria prevention-Malaria is a leading cause of death of children in Africa, killing nearly one million children each year. Every day 3,000 children die from the disease.  Develop Africa is working to ensure that this simple, inexpensive mosquito net is provided to all.  This project also provides preventive anti-malaria tablets.

Microfinance consists of making small loans, of usually less than $200, to individuals to establish or expand a small, self-sustaining business.  Microfinance has proven to be a successful practice and plays a major role in the development of many African nations.
