General Overview

The U.S.-Africa Children’s Fellowship is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving the education of children in Africa while raising the awareness of American students. As of September 2016, USACF has shipped 35 40-foot containers of supplies to more than 400 schools in Zimbabwe, Ghana, Tanzania, and South Africa. Each container is filled with library books, textbooks, school supplies, art supplies, clothing, sneakers, sports equipment, blackboards, toys, and other needed materials. USACF works hard to involve American students in its work. Through school presentations, American students not only learn about the difficult lives of their African counterparts; but are empowered to help. With the support of American children and friends, USACF is dramatically changing the educational environment and future of more than 190,000 children.

Some of USACF’s accomplishments

  • USACF has created or enhanced hundreds of libraries. For the first time, children can take books home to read.
  • Reading test results have soared. In one school, the pass rate increased from 0% to 35%. In another, the rate increased from 15% to 80%
  • More students are qualifying for universities.
  • Children living far from their rural schools can walk to school on cold days because they now have shoes.
  • Twice a year USACF returns to Zimbabwe to work with teachers and community volunteers to repair broken school furniture. As of September 2016, we have repaired over 10,000 units of school furniture. USACF also builds teacher wardrobes and paints classroom buildings.
  • Teacher morale in participating African schools has dramatically increased. Teacher retention is high. Involvement with USACF generates new pride in local schools and a new sense of future.
  • USACF has tripled the population of many kindergarten classes by supplying the classes with educational toys. Once the schools receive toys, class enrollment can jump from 20 students to 60 students.
  • Through the One World Play Project, USACF has shipped more than 17,000 soccer balls to Zimbabwe, Ghana, and South Africa. Regional July/August soccer tournaments are now being played annually in South Africa and Zimbabwe.
  • Each June, USACF works with Super Soccer Stars to send soccer coaches to Zimbabwe to run 8-day clinics for students and teachers. Each of the 35 teachers participating in the clinic have the opportunity to be certified by ZiFA; the Zimbabwe Football Association. Once certified, the teachers will go back to their schools and share what they learned with more than 15,000 children.
  • American students give their own story books, toys, clothing, shoes, soccer balls, uniforms and school supplies for shipment to Africa. Some school drives have yielded more than 100 boxes of donations.
  • For the past three years, USACF has been working with MIT professors John Ochensdorf and Les Norford and their architectural students. After visiting sites in Zimbabwe and South Africa, the students designed environmental friendly and cost efficient classroom blocks. USACF is hoping to raise the funds necessary to build these blocks by next year.
  • Every July, USACF takes 15 American volunteers to Zimbabwe and South Africa. Not only do they get to see some of the many wonders of Africa and go on safaris, but they get to teach for 5 days in rural Zimbabwean schools. The trip is life changing.
  • Whenever possible, USACF works with other NGOs to help children’s programs. USACF has helped other organizations ship containers to Kenya, Uganda, and Nigeria. It shipped two complete dental stations to Zimbabwe. USACF has shared hundreds of its soccer balls with schools outside the program.
