Welcome to Giving Africa

Dedicated to the eradication of poverty through the power of learning.


At The Core

  • Burkina Faso, West Africa

    Child Face

    Burkina Faso is one of the world’s poorest and harshest countries to live with an adult literacy rate of just 21.8%  

  • Bethel Development Project


    Our aim is to develop Bethel secondary school  into a centre of excellence; offering real opportunities for pupils to break out of the cycle of poverty.

  • Quality of education

    voc skills ceramics

    Our aim is more than just access, it is to provide a quality and relevant education; providing skills in trades that have a local demand and which offer employment opportunities.

  • Food crisis


    Our Food Programme provides children with a nutritious meal every day.  Erratic rains, poor harvests and food cost increases all contribute to a constant struggle to obtain food, leading to ill health and lack of concentration at school.

Get involved with our forthcoming events!
