Microfinance & Small Business Development

we have enabled the poorest of the poor to start small businesses.

 

Small business development is at the core of Global Alliance for Africa’s model for economic strengthening.  By listening to our local partners, and working with them to design and implement an integrated and contextual model of lending that helps communities and households increase income, we have enabled the poorest of the poor to start small businesses and provide sustainable care and support for orphans and vulnerable children affected by HIV/AIDS in both urban and rural locations.

Community Library Program

provides educational resources to orphans and other vulnerable children affected by HIV/AIDS.

 

Global Alliance for Africa partners with local communities to design, build, and manage libraries that are in slums and remote rural areas throughout East Africa.  The primary focus of Global Alliance libraries is to provide educational resources to orphans and other vulnerable children affected by HIV/AIDS as a foundation for them to rise out of poverty.

Therapeutic Arts Program

encouraging them to use art as an outlet for expression.

 

The Therapeutic Arts Program is one aspect of GAA’s multidimensional approach to addressing the needs of vulnerable children in East Africa. Its mission is to provide emotionally and physically safe spaces where orphaned and vulnerable children and youth are valued and respected as contributing members of the community, and where they can use the arts to freely express themselves, be unburdened of whatever troubles them, learn from each other, gain confidence in their skills and abilities, and experience a sense of belonging.
