Students for Africa

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. (Nelson Mandela)

About Us

How We're Helping

We are a registered charity rooted in the volunteerism and friendship of youth. In Canada, students learn about Maasai culture and challenges of subsistence life in rural Tanzania, Africa. We focus on one village at a time, improving school and living conditions. All our projects are volunteer driven and based on solutions proposed by villagers.

Get Involved

Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! We are all volunteers, and happy to have another set of hands! You can also help out by visiting one of our community presentations, prepping wood for handicrafts, collecting old electronics for our e-waste recycling fundraisers, or by making a donation. As the African proverb says, "If you want to go fast, walk alone. If you want to go far, walk together". Join us!

Ethical Gifts

Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading news of our club through word-of-mouth, thank you! We have many beautiful, ecologically sustainable gifts to acknowledge financial donations. Most are made by local students in Quinte, or by women in the Tanzanian village we are helping.
