Welcome to Born in Africa

We aim to stimulate social and educational development in children, striving to create economically self-sustainable adults

Born in Africa provides academic, social and life skill programs. The academic program focuses on education and tertiary studies. The social program is driven by an individual mentorship program and during the life skill programs the attention is focussed on enriching our learners by exposing them to life outside their rather limited daily routine.
