Footsteps for Africa is dedicated to serving Orphans and Vulnerable children (OVC) as well as women and families in need.
Footsteps for Africa started in 2010. We are a federally registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization (EIN/tax ID: 27-3872294). Our goal is to provide healthcare, sustainable food/water, and educational goods and services to orphans and vulnerable children (OVC).
Our guiding principle is complete transparency and accountability in our humanitarian efforts. 100% of donated goods and funds go directly toward our initiatives. We collect various donated supplies here in the United States, packed and dropped them off at our cargo company, picked up the cargo at the port in Africa, drove the goods to the distribution areas, and physically distributed the good ourselves. We are there every step of the way to make sure our goods and services reach the people who need them most.
Our Unique Success
Footsteps for Africa has provided aid to over 5,000 OVC in over 50 schools and orphanages Namibia and Zimbabwe since 2010. We are more efficient than most other aids organizations in southern Africa because we ensure that we are physically present at every step of the humanitarian initiative, whether it be the importation and distribution of goods, the building of facilities, implementation of medical or food programs, etc. We ensure that the aid reaches those who need it most. Our partnerships with other aid organizations in Zimbabwe and Namibia, government relationships, knowledge of the culture and continual needs assessment ensure that our initiatives target the most critical needs and are deployed quickly, responsibly, and successfully.
