The African Impact Foundation was originally established as a way to responsibly manage donations received from volunteers working on African Impact volunteer projects. Today, we are an independent organisation that prides itself on its expertise and knowledge of sustainable and responsible development. However, we continue to work closely with African Impact to develop and uplift local communities in the areas where volunteer projects are located. Together, we strive to use our combined strengths and resources to make a bigger, better and more sustainable impact on the lives of people living in the communities where African Impact projects are based.
Partnering with African Impact in this way significantly reduces the foundation’s costs relating to vehicles, office space, and staff on the ground at projects, as these sectors are supplemented by African Impact facilities and personnel. Furthermore, African Impact assists in paying towards a portion of the African Impact Foundation employees’ salaries. This means that a minimum of 82.5% of all donations goes directly to the project costs on the ground – something we are very proud of!
