Supporting Orphans and Refugees in Africa
Global Action International has worked in Africa for nearly 30 years. We support children, especially orphans and refugees, to rise above poverty. Poverty, at its most extreme form, is destitution. It’s trying to survive without everyday essentials like food, water or shelter. For sub-Saharan Africa, that’s the reality for almost half of the population. Without their most basic needs accounted for, African children cannot begin to imagine a path out of poverty — and the cycle continues. Your gift to Global Action International creates lasting change for children and youth in these communities by providing access to food and medicine, safe housing, as well as crucial health services, education programs, and more.

Facts about Children in Africa

  • In sub-Saharan Africa, 41% of the population is living on less than $1.90

  • Diseases like HIV/AIDS are leaving kids orphaned and in charge of their households at very young ages. An estimated 32.1 million orphans live in Africa.

  • Almost 60% of Africa's population is under the age of 25, making Africa the world's youngest continent
