ABOUT US

Opportunities Not Handouts

Africompassion’s mission is to build and lift the individual lives of the community it serves beginning with the Kogaja village and Ikoma ward in Tanzania, one person, one family and one village at a time.

Africompassion is focused on sustaining and nurturing the 82 orphans it sponsors by helping them achieve health and obtaining an education.

Africompassion is engaged in the process of developing an exceptional private school in Tanzania that will provide an educational experience comparable to excellent American schools with a curriculum adapted to local needs and circumstances for 650 students in grades K – 12 on 6.5 acre site in Kogaja owned by Africompassion including community adult education classes.

Africompassion seeks to enable the communities it serves by providing clean water through filtration technology and cost-effective well drilling, and sanitation services through training and implementing sanitation practices.

We partner with Africompassion Organization to help them work to eliminate poverty, provide education and help people become self-reliant.

Africompassion Organization owns about 7 acres of land in Kogaja, the future home of Africompassion Academy's permanent school.
