About All Out Africa
All Out Africa is a social enterprise comprising
of a group of companies and a non-profit based in South Africa,
Swaziland, Mozambique and Botswana. It caters to people looking
for a wide variety of African experiences from volunteering, tours,
research, internships, and University field studies, whilst at
the same time, building sustainable long-term projects.
All Out is serious about giving back
to the community and the environment. That is why we set up the
All Out Africa Foundation in 2006 as a locally registered charity
in Swaziland (n° RT/7151) to help expand and sustain our development
projects, which include support to the six care centres for vulnerable
children, a sports development program for local children and
youth, community building projects, child sponsorship program
to support vulnerable children at primary and highschool levels
to assist them with school requirements, and facilitate conservation
research projects at the wildlife and marine research centres.
We share our passion for Southern Africa's people, places and
wildlife with the world and offers adventures that change lives.
Investing in the Future!
All Out Africa believes that education for our children is one
of the best investments we can make. After all, they are our future,
and the most important resource we have! Our main goal is to improve
access to quality Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) opportunities
for the most disadvantaged children in the communities. In Swaziland,
only 30% of children have access to ECCE due to poverty, despite
its huge potential to transform lives. Quality preschool education
enables children to build a solid foundation for lifelong learning,
and prepares them for "big school", so they can start
school on time, and ready to learn, which in turn contributes
to reducing drop outs, most of which happens in the first two
years of primary school.
To improve access to ECCE, we are supporting six local, community-based
day care centres in the Hhohho Region of Swaziland which provide
care and support to over 250 vulnerable 3 to 6 year-olds, whose
lives have been negatively impacted by the HIV and AIDS epidemic.
In the absence of adequate formal preschools, All Out is working
to upgrade these care centres into preschools by providing comprehensive
support which include nutritious meals, clean water, food gardens,
infrastructure, learning and recreational materials, teacher training,
health support, and everything else we need to offer the best
ECCE opportunities possible for the most marginalized children
in our communities. It's an extremely cost effective program which
can make a huge impact. For example, the price of your daily cup
of coffee ($3) will provide a nutritious breakfast and lunch for
a child who comes to the care centre every morning hungry.
By giving a gift of education, you are giving
a child hope, and a brighter future filled with endless opportunities.
It's a gift that will not only impact the child for a lifetime
but also future generations to come. Your contribution, large
or small, will make a world of difference for our children!
