What We Do
Africa Bridge is a nonprofit, rural economic development organization dedicated to improving the lives of the most vulnerable children and their caregivers. Our work helps guardian families help themselves and escape extreme poverty. We offer families and the vulnerable children they care for opportunities and a chance to achieve their dreams.
We empower Tanzanian families to protect, support, and care for vulnerable children by helping villages implement sustainable social service and economic solutions.

Meet Mr. Jacobs
In 2008 Mr. Jacobs was given a dairy cow by Africa Bridge. This cow has allowed him to take care of his 8 grand-children as well as cover the expense for education. Three of his grand children managed to reach university. His grand children in turn have worked together to build a home for the family and now help provide support.View More Stories
