Out Of Afrika is a registered charity founded in UK in 1995 and a registered non-governmental organisation in Kenya.
Out of Afrika is a charity that works at grass root level in Kenya, promoting education to orphans, disadvantaged children and youth.
Every pound that is spent can be seen on the ground. Every donation can be measured against another brick in a classroom wall or another book in the hand of a child.
The charity arose from one woman going to Africa on holiday and seeing the reality of life; deprivation, poverty but the desire to improve their lives and hope.
Our aim is to improve the lives of people by uplifting them from poverty. It is not enough to send money to Africa. No one needs to set out the massive problems that this continent faces. At the end of the day only Africa will work those out.
In our society, so many of us have benefited from education. We have elevated ourselves in many ways, economically, socially and physically. But it needs a seed to make this flourish.
Only by helping people to help themselves can we hope to improve livelihoods, and encourage long term self-reliance and sustainability. This is the philosophy of Out of Afrika and we intend to achieve this through education and skills training; by providing the right skills we aim to empower people and increase opportunities of employment.
If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day, if you teach a man to fish he will eat for life.
