Build Africa is an African education charity

We believe in the power of education to help end poverty. We work to give children the education they need and fight the inequalities that stand in their way.

We partner with remote and rural communities where children are leaving school without vital basic skills. Our unique approach then helps parents and teachers to create sustainable, effective schools and to nurture their children's learning.

For over 20 years we have ensured vulnerable children in Africa get the right infrastructure, teaching and family support so they can get the most from their time at school and go on to lead productive, healthy and happy lives.

You can help us to make a difference to the lives of African children living in poverty now. Donate, take part in an event, fundraise for us or sponsor a child. It could be the most powerful thing you do today.
