Asante Africa Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to providing quality education to children in East Africa.

The Foundation was officially incorporated in the state of California in August 2006.

At present, Asante Africa Foundation supports projects in the East African countries of Kenya and Tanzania. Approximately 83% of donations support in-country programs and projects.

Tanzania projects include Mto Wa Mbu, a small village in the northeast, and another rural community north of Arusha. Kenya projects include Narok, in the Loita Hills near the border of Tanzania, and Limuru, located just outside of Nairobi.

In the future, Asante Africa Foundation has plans to expand into other parts of East Africa. Presently the Foundation continues to build credibility in communities where measurable improvements are underway.

Several of Asante Africa Foundation's school and community projects are highlighted in a series of photographs hosted on Flickr and Facebook. The photo galleries shown below highlight two gala fundraisers, as well as a leadership academy that took place in Tanzania.
