About Us

Africa’s Promise Village, a 501(c)(3), was established in 2010 by four career educators in Austin, Texas. Our mission is to improve the lives of African children and their communities through education, clean water, nutrition, and healthcare. Today in Tanzania, there are an estimated 3 million orphans and many more children who may have a living relative but one who is unable to provide even the most basic care for the child.  APV aims to step in to assist in providing an environment that inspires hope and health for a brighter future. We do that today through two main programs: (1) Partnership with an established pre-K-8 school/orphanage in the city of Arusha and (2) Lanjani, our adopted village, in the rural Simanjiro (Maasai) area of central Tanzania.
