Mission, Vision & Purpose
Bridge Africa Foundation works to promote quality academic and social education for African children between the ages of 4 to 21 years. This is done through educational programs, collaboration and investment in organizations who advance educational learning, and direct interest in wellbeing of individual children with a skill and purpose.
We stand true in the saying that “the real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes” – Marcel Proust. We, therefore, work as collaborators with existing organizations to advocate and support their goals of long-term sustainability for children’s education.
"The concept is always true, that you cannot withhold a dream from a child, but you can equip them to attain and do well by that dream, whether it be as tomorrow’s President. That is the audacity of hope." – Barack Obama
At the heart of our existence is our God-given purpose which drives us. Put simply:
By 2030, we want to come together as Africans to celebrate the significant improvement in the basic standard of education, (at an affordable cost), for all children in Africa, by narrowing the opportunity gap.
Our vision is for one in thirty children, in a community to become well-equipped with social emotional and leadership skills by 2030. Children should be armed with the right social skills – through programs which promote exposure to learning in different environments both nationally and internationally
Our discovery learning activities help build relationships, dialogue, listening, empathy and authentic friendships through connecting activities, competitive games, day camp activities, or staycations with others. Overall children, will develop the right critical thinking and social emotional skills, required to sustain a stronger community and economy that will benefit generations to come.
