About Orphans Africa

Orphans Africa (OA) is a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt charitable organization that began in 2007 with the coming together of three ordinary people whose desire was to build peace between nations by providing assistance to those who are most vulnerable.

Together they traveled to Tanzania where malaria and the AIDS epidemic has left victims of all ages.  Over three million children have been orphaned.  Working hand-in-hand with grassroots non-governmental organizations in Tanzania, OA assists in providing the orphans with education and basic necessities they need to become self-sufficient.  We believe that by educating children to become self-sustaining, we are bringing hope, not only to today, but to the future...

Orphans Africa Staff

Orphans Africa can’t do its great work without a core group of dedicated people who are passionate about helping the orphans.  OA has staff in Washington, U.S.A., Brazil, as well as in Tanzania.  Almost everyone is a volunteer, selflessly giving of their time and talents.
