Develop Africa was birthed out of the vision that human resource development is the key to improving nation building capacity in Africa. Develop Africa is involved in a range of programs in Africa supporting education, microfinance and small businesses, job skills / leadership development training, etc.
Through training, scholarship, investment and partnerships Develop Africa is helping to develop Africa’s people through the promotion of transformational education, resource development, investment training and strategic empowerment.
Our premise is based on the notion that in order to change one’s personal, national or organizational status there must necessarily be a “change in the thinking and processing pattern of the mind.”
We envision an African continent fully developed in terms of its human and resource capacity, free from poverty; ignorance, and civil conflict and where the poorest and most vulnerable people become “leaders” and effectively manage national resources.
Examples of specific activity: We provide -
o job skills training
o microfinance / micro-lending and small business training
o books, school and teaching supplies
o basic computer training and computers
o mosquito nets, start up tool kits (such as sewing machines), school uniforms etc.
