Africa empowerment

  1. 1. PR Release/Apples for Africa Africa Empowerment Today the Apples for Africa Foundation announces its strategy to better meet the nutritional needs of people in Africa and abroad. The mission is to provide orchards to different countries in Africa, and other continents, for the purpose of helping remove the oppression of poverty to those most at risk. Apples for Africa will use the proceeds to educate, feed and cloth orphans, as well as provide training for widows. “While last year we focused on accelerating that Program, this coming year we will focus on increasing the marketing efforts as well as our Program’s quality so we are better able to address the individual needs of children in Africa. The Apples for Africa Foundation currently plants apple trees in 14 countries and sells the fruit to the people within the country and abroad. The profit made is used to educate, feed and cloth orphans, as well as provide training for widows. The overall goal is to provide the people involved with jobs, food and to make them self sufficient. A range of essential services from food parcels to psychosocial support are provided to orphaned and vulnerable children primarily through careworkers, who are in turn trained to provide care and to build local organizational capacity. A New Strategy: Get more sponsors and careworkers involved to improve the Program’s quality! Apples for Africa’s strategy will focus on two core areas: growing the number of community-based partners to reach even more children; increasing the marketing efforts to get more sponsors onboard; By addressing these two core areas, Apples for Africa hopes to improve the quality of care and services to orphaned and vulnerable children.
