What will my donation be used for?
Great question! All donations will be used for building and supporting our program. This will include our ability to provide scholarships for financially challenged families, enhance the program abroad in Africa by sending donations of new and gently used athletic gear and supplies, building our after-school program both here locally and in Africa and funding special events, such as the annual KidsAfrik banquet. We are in the process of building a strong foundation to sustain the program over the long-term and we can definitley use your on-going support!
