As you may be aware, a percentage of every purchase you make with us is used to support orphanages and education projects throughout Africa. As of October 2011, Africa Imports is now helping three additional projects in Uganda and Zambia, Africa.
SMK Farms and Orphanage in Uganda
is an organization that is working to sustainably empower the local
orphans and farmers of Uganda. They are working to house, educate, and
provide for the nutritional needs of orphans in Uganda while giving them
the tools to continue successfully in later life. From the purchases
that our customers made with us, Africa Imports made a donation of
$5,000 to the orphanage. The orphanage was able to buy $13,000 worth of
grain with this $5,000. Once the pigs are fully raised with help from
the orphans, this $5,000 gift turns into enough to pay for a lot more
physical needs and schooling than it would without this. Learn more

Lake Tanganyika Orphanage School in Zambia is a school that consists of 60 local orphan children who attend three classes, Playgroup, Grade 0 and Grade 1. Orphans in Mpulungu, Zambia are rejected and neglected and also undernourished physically. Many are shunned or are living in physically and/or emotionally abusive households. After a year of loving care and sound teaching, these children are healthier emotionally and physically. As of October 1, 2011, Africa Imports has given $2,000 to this school. We also give $500 a month to support this work on an ongoing basis. To read more about Lake Tanganyika Orphanage School, please click here. Without your purchases, we would not be able to support these orphans as we do. So thank you very much! To find out more about what we do in Africa, just click here.
