Connect Africa Foundation

Organization Description: 

Connect Africa is a grassroots organization that works with villagers to improve their lives. We provide crucial financial support to the guardians of orphans who can now start their own businesses and for students who have no other means of obtaining an education. Our organization is an important part of the communities in which we work because they are often overlooked by larger charitable organizations.

Connect Africa is led by two committed and passionate individuals: Lynn S. Auerbach and Kalule Charles. Both are actively engaged in assessing the needs of the families, implementing start-up endeavors and supporting the children in their efforts to obtain an education. Connect Africa relies on local staff and advisors who intimately understand the complex needs of the community.

Mission Statement: 

Founded in 2005, Connect Africa helps villagers in Uganda who are struggling to support children orphaned by AIDS. In Uganda, education is not free but every family dreams of an education for their child and a future income for a better life. Our mission is to strengthen families by providing educational sponsorship to orphans and business loans to the guardians of orphans.
