Education Within Reach
ACBF prioritizes education —especially for women and youths in the remote, rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa. Educating women and girls in particular, improves the well-being of entire communities, this is particularly true in areas of the world where child marriage, prostitution and early pregnancy can appear to be the only viable alternatives. Education is an essential component of our goal to eradicate poverty in Africa.
ACBF combats financial, cultural and social barriers to education. We deploy a multi-tiered approach including scholarships and grants to enable women and at-risk youths to complete training and succeed.
We are an implementation partner developing educational programs in rural communities and which specifically address gender inequality. ACBF partners with local, community-based non-profits in order to develop programs that are tailored to and led by people from the communities served. ACBF’s programs fulfill unmet needs by providing meaningful, actionable skills in a timeframe that is viable and sustainable.
