OUR MISSION & GOALS
America to Africa H.E.L.P. LLC is currently in its ninth year of operation. We are a non-profit, community-based organization-for the people and by the people.
Joni Sullivan started America to Africaby working with the Small Village Foundation and partnering with the WC Swanson Foundation which is based out of Utah. Together they donated medical supplies and equipment to St. Apollinaris Hospital in Centocow, South Africa. Next, Sullivan focused her efforts on providing a feeding program to the primary school in Ioxopa which could only feed a quarter of its students. The foundation quickly grew from there with Sullivan returning to South Africa from Idaho with Rhonda Sandmeyer and a construction company to build toilet facilities and install running water for the nursery schools in the Kwazulu-Natal Province.
America to Africa now supports over a dozen projects with help from humanitarian organizations and partnerships. Our main goals are to develop self-sustaining projects which will provide economic growth in the local South African communities and improve the lives of disadvantaged children in Africa as a means for them to escape poverty and improve the quality of their future. Over the years we have been able to provide medical supplies, teach skills training, fund local projects, disability therapy clinics, food deliveries, teach collaboration opportunities and construct toilet and water supplies for Creches (nursery schools).
Our vision is to improve the lives of underprivileged children and people in the resource-poor communities of Africa.We strive to restore hope and dignity in an atmosphere of social upliftment. Our core values are love sincerity, inclusivity and fun and we believe that this is evident in all of our programs and projects.
