"Welcome to The Afobe Foundation and thank you for taking the time to visit. The work we do here is very close to my heart for many reasons. Whilst I was born in East London, I was raised by Congolese parents who fled their home in Kinshasa due to violence poverty and lack of opportunities. I have cousins who are orphans and often return to Congo to see family as well as for International duties. I’ve been blessed with supportive parents who have guided me through my career and felt that giving back to communities in Kinshasa as well as communities in London was definitely something I wanted to be a part of. They are the two cities that made me and I am proud to have such a hard working team to make our mission happen.
We work together with sponsors and volunteers to provide as many opportunities as possible for some of the most vulnerable young people in Kinshasa, Congo by running events and campaigns which also support young people in the UK.
The impact that The Afobe Foundation has had on vulnerable lives so far through your kind donations has been amazing, but there is still so much we want to do as an NGO. Thank you for your amazing help"

Founder & Trustee at The Afobe Foundation
Your donations towards our hub in Kinshasa will allow for street children to come in and have nutrition packed meals, basic medical attention, a safe place to learn and somewhere they can be clean and looked after.
We need to raise a further £35,000 (May 2018) in order to reach our goal for a full running orphanage. Whilst the drop-in centre is fantastic, it breaks our hearts to see children back out on the street at night.
The Afobe Foundation has built invaluable relations with companies willing to match what we raise in order to pay for extraordinarily talented young people to attend school and pursue their destiny. Help us change lives.
