Africa Bridge

About us

tTHE MISSION OF AFRICA BRIDGE is to empower Tanzanian families to protect, support, and care for vulnerable children by helping villages implement sustainable social service and economic solutions.

Africa Bridge is a rural economic development organization that provides start-up capital, education and training resources to families caring for orphaned and vulnerable children.

Africa Bridge is currently working in 18 villages in Tanzania. Utilizing a holistic, integrated development model, our self-sustaining programs have improved the lives of over 7,000 children and their families.

Core Principles

We listen, gathering extensive feedback and input from children and local leaders. Our projects are designed by Africans for Africans.

We encourage men, women and children to come together as equals, discover their common ground and plan for their future.

We combine Africa’s deep values of community and relationship with Western resources and technologies. We facilitate local solutions and foster independence.

We strengthen families and their communities so they become empowered, economically secure, and have the capacity to protect and nurture their children.

In 2011, This Is My Village was launched to better connect our mission and core principles with the people who make it all possible: you.
