The Africa School Assistance Project (ASAP) is committed to increasing access to quality public education in East Africa, especially for girls.
Education, more than any other sector of development, seeds dramatic improvement in poverty reduction, gender equality, health outcomes, child immunization, HIV/AIDS prevention, environmental protection and wildlife conservation. Simply put, widely available public education will lead to a prosperous, peaceful and sustainable future for Africa.
To date, ASAP has developed seven rural community schools in the Arusha and Mwanza Regions of Tanzania, impacting over 5,000 students annually and they’re getting huge results. 100% primary completion and transition rates to secondary school and the Kupanda Project for Girls has increased secondary completion rates for girls from a shocking 4% to 100%!
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.

And critical needs like skills, education, medical supplies, clinics, mosquito nets, bedding, food, financial literacy, and bottled water are in short supply.

Our story begins with one courageous woman in 2004. In a chance encounter, our founders met Millie Grace Akena while walking through a Ugandan slum. Millie sat outside of her mud home, rolling beads from strips of paper under the sweltering sun, when Devin Hibbard, Ginny Jordan and Torkin Wakefield stopped to talk with her. Though she struggled to put food on the table, Millie found joy in creating beautiful things with her own hands, and she was determined to build a better future for her family.
