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.
AfricAid mentors secondary school girls in Tanzania to complete their education, develop into confident leaders, and transform their own lives and their communities. We equip girls to overcome challenges and reach their full potential because educated girls create lasting positive change. The outcome is proactive, resilient, and socially-responsible girls who secure better jobs, raise healthier families, and increase the standing of women in society.
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.
For 15 years, women around the world have been connecting through love and empowerment, growing a social enterprise to educate and raise funds to support women’s entrepreneurship training to transform lives.

Madeline went to Kenya on a medical mission trip to work as a nurse with the Matibabu Foundation in April 2018. Shortly after getting back, her friend Kate heard stories of the conditions there and wanted to help. Together, they came up with the idea for “Mama Packs for Kenya” and have been helping women and expanding to nearby hospitals ever since!
As mothers ourselves, we believe that it is important for every woman to have a healthy, dignified birth. We believe that women matter, babies matter, and birth matters. These packs are one way that we can help these mothers have a dignified start to motherhood.
Nurturing Minds and the SEGA Girls’ School started in 2007 as the dream of founder Polly Dolan, who through her work on poverty alleviation in Africa (since 1996) became convinced that educating women and girls has a significant impact on global development.
Polly obtained 23 acres of land in Morogoro, Tanzania – the future site of the SEGA Girls’ School. She knew that only when equipped with a questioning mind can girls gain the understanding and tools necessary to address the social, economic and political situations affecting their lives.
In 2008, Polly enlisted the help of her sister Tracey Dolan, who with Polly, co-founded the U.S. based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Nurturing Minds with the goal of raising funds and providing technical expertise for the construction and development of the SEGA Girls’ School. SEGA opened its doors to 30 students in a borrowed classroom in July, 2008.
Nurturing Minds working alongside with the SEGA Girls’ School believes that educating vulnerable Tanzanian girls will give them the opportunity to lift themselves and their families out of poverty, improve their nation’s economy, and ultimately change our world!
