Keen on promoting sustained efforts towards achievement of the SDGs in Africa, the PLO Foundation has partnered widely with well-wishers from across Europe, US and Middle East to fight poverty, hunger and gender inequality and promote affordable healthcare, access to water and sanitization and innovation.

In so doing, we are proud to have cultivated a sense of strong cultural identity, common heritage, shared values and ethics which defined us as human beings and the humanistic agency that we should all have.

We are cognizant of the fact that we should not encourage a syndrome of dependency but rather encourage self-sustainability.

Indeed, our track record as far as that goes is an open page. Our Africa Mentorship Program boasts of significant successes in Agricultural programs geared towards ensuring food availability and security in the African continent; promotion of education through establishment of resource centers, book donations and digital literacy programs; promotion of quality rural Health; Community Development programs that promote cultural identity through Arts; Women & Youth driven programs and supporting gender equality and empowerment as well as Industry Innovation and Creativity programs that support African youth employment.

In so doing, we have made it a core agenda in our activities, to promote a people whose view of development is people-driven and relying on the potential of African people, especially its women and youth, and caring for children.

The programs are still ongoing in Zimbabwe, South Africa, Ghana, Sierra Leonne, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

In our three-decade long existence, we have earnestly worked towards seeing a more prosperous Africa, and more empowered people.

We sincerely hope that through these efforts, and gracious support from all quarters, we will be a flagship of excellence through transformation leadership in Africa.
