We give scholarships to children in rural communities targeting those who cannot go to school if no one helps them. When we pay for their tuition, give them school shoes and uniforms, and provide food for those who walk long distances to school, we change their families, their communities and the world.
MISSION & HISTORY.
The African Community Fund for Education Group was founded by Stanley Ndambakuwa in June 2013. Ndambakuwa is an Obama Scholar at the Obama Foundation (The University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy, Class of 2019).
Our mission is to minimize the impact of poverty by creating empowerment opportunities for disadvantaged children in marginalized communities through education and leadership development.
