ASPIRE MAMA AFRICA

What We Do

First, most importantly, 100% of all funds raised go directly to these causes.
Aspire Mama Africa raises funds to support education for girls and healthcare for mothers and their children. We are currently involved in two projects, one in Morocco and one in Uganda.


Nothing impacts a developing country more profoundly than educating its girls. Early marriages are delayed. Infant mortality goes down. Diseases such as HIV are reduced. Poverty is reduced. Families stay together. The economy of whole villages and whole countries is improved.

The Amazigh tribe lives scattered in tiny villages high in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.

Many of these villages are so remote, it can take hours for villagers to reach a road. These roads are often blocked in winter, cutting off all communication. Schools only exist in the valleys far away.

This means girls have no access to secondary school. Aspire Mama Africa (AMA) has joined forces with Education For All Morocco (EFA) to provide boarding houses near schools for these
mountain girls. Since 2007, EFA has been building safe boarding houses for girls.


These provide:

  • Hot showers
  • Three nutritious meals a day
  • Communal spaces
  • Access to computers and books
  • Dedicated House Mother and international volunteers to support them with their studies and in their time away from home

 

Our funds paid for girls to stay in these boarding houses.
Unfortunately, 5 of the 6 boarding houses were destroyed in the September earthquake. Our emphasis has now shifted to rebuilding one of these boarding houses, so our girls can get back to school.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Since 2007, Education for All Morocco (EFA) has been building safe and well-equipped boarding houses for girls, crucially located close to secondary schools. The EFA boarding houses are a home away from home, providing care and support so that girls can continue their education.

  • Safe and cozy dorms
  • Hot showers
  • Three nutritious meals a day
  • Communal spaces
  • Access to computers and books
  • Dedicated House Mother and international volunteers to support them with their studies and in their time away from home

Healthcare for women and their children in rural Uganda

In addition to our Morocco project, AMA is proud to support the work of Dr Prisca Rompen in rural Uganda.

Prisca is a Dutch chiropractor who gave up her private practice to move to an area of Uganda with little healthcare. There she established the Kale Uganda Chiropractic Foundation to provide free healthcare for local villagers. Her mission is simple:

“I give back through community, through love, and through chiropractic,”  said DC Prisca Rompen.
