Education For a Better Tomorrow.

The Mission

At MISSION, we firmly believe that education serves as the backbone to solving many of the world’s problems. Our goal is to collaborate with schools, communities, and families throughout sub-Saharan Africa to stress the importance of literacy and ensure children and young adults have access to the educational materials needed to succeed.

The Challange

Sub-Saharan Africa consists of the continent of Africa that lies south of the Sahara. Countries within the region include Botswana, Chad, Ethiopia, Nigeria, South Africa, Zimbabwe, as well as 40 additional countries. Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest rates of education exclusion on the continent. Over one-fifth of children between the ages of 6 and 11 are out of school, and more than 45 million children and young adults between the ages of 15 and 24 are illiterate. 

Did you know: Illiteracy costs the global economy approximately $1.5 trillion annually.

Our Solution

Mission is one of the leading children and young adult literacy nonprofit organizations in the United States. Each year we send thousands of supplies—textbooks, e-books, writing materials, tablets, laptops, and more—to specific African schools or communities in need.

How we make a difference

Partner

Mission partners with organizations throughout sub-Saharan Africa to find and determine communities and schools in need of educational supplies.

Collect

Our volunteers and local partners across the United States organize book and educational resource supply drives and raise the funds required to ship supplies overseas.

Distribute

We ship all supplies to our overseas partners who then distribute to designated communities and schools.
