About Us - AFRICYEF

African Child and Youth Empowerment Foundation is a UK based charity founded with the sole aim of helping the poor African children and youths acquire basic education, which could be formal or informal.

We see education in its general sense as a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, values, beliefs and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, and or research. It dispels ignorance. It is the only wealth that cannot be robbed. Learning includes the moral values and the improvement of character and the methods to increase the strength of mind.

We are a non-governmental and non–profit making education and empowerment foundation in the United Kingdom, with our main theme and activities centred on creating awareness of the need for proper, effective, functional and purposeful education for the African children and youths.

To achieve this, we expose to the world the clear and undisguised poor conditions, obstacles, impediments and barriers to education for African children and youths and work towards ameliorating them.

Having realised that education (both formal and informal) is the key to emancipation of the human mind, we believe that the potentials and resourcefulness of the African children and youths are immense and must be brought to the fore and well harnessed. This will not only benefit the Africans but also the world at large.
