With a wave of investment transforming Africa’s educational, economic, and physical infrastructure, a bright future lies ahead for the continent’s 1 billion people. But realizing this promise will require innovative solutions to some persistent challenges, including conflict, illiteracy, and health crises.

EDC is committed to improving the lives of people across Africa. Our programs build entrepreneurship and economic opportunity, support ambitious education reform efforts, and develop solutions to pervasive public health issues, including HIV/AIDS. Across all of our work, we consult regional partners to create meaningful, effective programs that are informed by local contexts and are designed to be sustainable long into the future.
