Transform Africa is a UK registered Charity which supports local organisations in Africa and the communities they work with to take a lead in bringing about sustainable social and economic improvements within their communities.
Our focus areas:
1) Water and Sanitation
3) HIV and HealthYouth
4) Training for Employment
We believe that poverty in Africa is mainly caused by poor leadership and aspects of cultural and religious beliefs, attitudes and practices that act as barriers to sustainable development.
Therefore Transform Africa empowers the most affected groups, especially women, youths and people with disabilities to challenge those aspects and come up with solutions for achieving positive changes.
Furthermore we use a combination of community-driven approach and lobbying and advocacy to empower poor communities and disadvantaged groups, especially women and young people to realise sustainable improvements in the quality of their lives.
Transform Africa's also works in the following areas:
We work with members of the Transform Network to offer technical services to local organisations in Africa to enable them to improve their effectiveness and thus better serve the communities they work with.
We raise funds and work with the partner organisations to support communities to find lasting solutions to poverty.
Specific areas we have been involved in include HIV prevention and management, Water and Sanitation including the construction of wells, (Microcredit and training in wealth creation for self-sufficiency and sustainable livelihoods), Apprenticeship and Vocational Training and Youth Employment.
Research and advocacy
We carry out research, lobbying and advocacy work on gender and North–South partnerships with a view to bring in African perspectives to transform gender, improve North–South partnerships and challenge some of the development paradigms on fighting poverty in Africa.
We have published our Transform Africa Annual report for 2014-2015 to read it simply click on the link.
Transform Africa is raising money through Global giving for a project in rural Uganda. The aim of the project is to alleviate rural poverty and water-related ill-health. It will be located in Busimbi, Mityana District and Kitenga, Mubende District in Uganda. The project will benefit about 3,000 people through increased access to safe, clean water. Find out more.
All donations to Transform Africa go towards helping to support the work we carry out in countries across Africa. Without the generosity of the giving public, Transform Africa would not have been able to make the difference that it has made for many people on the continent.
