Africa’s Tomorrow is a tax-exempt non-profit organization, registered in the US since 2006. We provide funding to promising female students from rural Africa in order to help them attain higher education when poverty would otherwise prevent them from continuing. We believe that educating the underprivileged is the best investment in the future and provides a catalyst for positive change throughout the world.
While this entire experience benefits many people, the ultimate purpose is to help Africa. The idea is that by providing a great education to students from rural areas of Africa, they will gain the skills and knowledge that will allow them to return home and promote positive changes from within. With roots in the community, they are equipped with the knowledge and connections that will foster efficient and relevant progress, as well as the acumen to prioritize problems and allocate resources, rather than an international organization making those decisions.
Mission: African Community Advancement Initiative partners with rural communities to create sustainable local development programs that improve overall quality of life through training, education and infrastructure to address the three facets of sustainable development: health, education and living standards.
About Us: Through a micro-holistic approach, ACA Initiative partners with rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa to identify the gaps in the development process for three categories: health, education and living standards. After identifying these deficiencies, the ACA Initiative works with the community to develop a strategy to integrate education, training, access to better tools and supplies, as well as infrastructure to improve these areas and ensure long-term, sustainable development in the community. We are currently working in rural Tanzania with a remote farming village of approximately 2,000 families. Through partnerships with other organizations, ACA Initiative launched the Rufiji River Project which is providing expert agricultural training combined with access to advanced seed and environmentally friendly fertilizer to improve farming outputs by 200-500 percent. Also, by facilitating market access, farmers in the area are able to quadruple their earning potential. Simultaneously, the ACA Initiative has launched its "Champions of Health" project which is a collaboration of outreach, nutrition, education and research to combat the serious health problems prevalent in the area.

Established in 2014 as a U.S. 501 (c) (3) public charity, African Conservation Centre US (ACC-US) exists to provide support for the African Conservation Centre (ACC) in Kenya and other community-based wildlife conservation initiatives in Africa.
Founded by Dr. David Western and a committed group of board members, ACC-US raises, administers, and grants funds and resources for ACC and other charitable organizations and programs that link science, conservation, and people to sustain biodiversity. We do this by partnering with individual donors, foundations, corporations, and other nonprofit organizations.
ACC-US board members and staff are dedicated to supporting ACC and their programs because, for more than 20 years, ACC has pioneered community-based conservation programs that work. As an African hub for cutting-edge conservation practices, ACC brings together the people and resources needed to design and implement sustainable solutions to conservation issues.

We plan your trip around your interests, and your budget and length of stay. We have a great team of professional and very knowledgeable guides and representatives who will be with you throughout your trip.

Those properties will range from the Ultra Luxury Hotels to Boutique Hotels and Guesthouses with charm. All will be well-located, clean and safe. Your hosts are warm and welcoming and always go the extra mile. We invite you to our offices for an interview with us.
