The Ma Africa Foundation is completely reliant on donations. A contribution is made by the Ama Africa Experiences Organisation where International volunteers pay a programme fee and part of this fee is then contributed to the Ma Africa Foundation to provide further support to local organizations. We would like you to assist us in our endeavour in order to make a difference at grassroots level in local communities by contributing financially to the Ma Africa Foundation in order for us to make an even greater positive impact.


"We must use time wisely and forever realise that the time is
always ripe to do right." Nelson Mandela

Not only have they proven to be valuable human resources, but they have in many instances gone beyond that and continued support to organisations by starting initiatives like ballet and music programmes at schools in disadvantaged communities.
