#GivingTuesday is a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season added to the calendar on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The third annual GivingTuesday is on December 2, 2014. At Asante Africa Foundation one of our core values is the belief to pay it forward. We are inviting our supporters (new and old) to find a way to pay it forward and give back this holiday season.
We’ve achieved so much this year and it is all thanks to the generosity of our donors. This #GivingTuesday you can continue to help us educate East African youth by supporting one of our programs.
Remember to spread the word about this movement by using #GivingTuesday on social media and help us make this the best Giving Tuesday yet!

Asante Africa Foundation created the Leadership and Entrepreneurship Incubator (LEI) to provide vulnerable youth from deeply rural areas of East Africa with opportunities to work with their peers across borders to develop employment and leadership skills that will enable them to become successful leaders, entrepreneurs and global citizens.

#GIVE a classroom
Fund the construction of a classroom building at a primary or secondary school, based on the needs of the specific community.

This will provide a new and improved school building or additional classrooms to address overcrowding.
#GIVE a science lab
You can inspire young people to excel in science, be creative with their minds, and advance their opportunities for achievement.
