Welcome to Giving Africa

Giving Africa exists to empower children through education.

We work in partnership with local NGOs in Gourcy, Burkina Faso, to create a model school of excellence; improving access to quality education and skills training.

We strive to help children achieve financial independence and self-sufficiency.

Watch how our new classrooms and food programme have really changed the lives of children at Bethel School here.


Burkina Faso

Giving Africa’s work is focused on one of the world’s poorest countries; almost half the population live below the poverty line and it has the second lowest school enrolment rate in the world.

 

Bethel School

Bethel secondary school faces huge challenges with severe overcrowding and a very poor learning environment

Giving Africa is working to vastly improve conditions at the school and to increase the number of student places.

Vocational Skills

There is a great need to provide access to vocational skills training, in trades and crafts for which there is local demand and which offer employment opportunities.

Our Vocational Skills Centre and Programme  will provide children with the tools they need to achieve genuine self-sufficiency.

Food

Education is the key to a better future for Burkina’s children, but they wont learn if they are not physically fit and well. Often, children only get one meal a day, many are not so lucky and do not get to eat every day.

Our Food Programme will provide children at Bethel school with at least one nutritious meal each school day.
