Support FOBDA Projects

Educate the African Child (EAC)

Since African youths face tremendous challenges in accessing financial needs, it has been discovered that it is become very hard for young people to study in various colleges and universities and become who they want to become due to financial crisis. Research has shown that in most colleges, first semesters are filled with learners, but very few manage to complete the semester and continue with their studies as many of them lack financial support to pay fees in these schools.

But the reality is that there are many supporters who are seeking to help young people excel in their dreams. The only problem is the connection between these people who wants to support and the children who needs support. Therefore, FOBDA in this project is a mediator connecting supporters with children who needs support. 

Educate African Child, is therefore a new project that is aiming at identifying zealous children who are intelligent and have high ambitions for the success of their communities and their lives in Africa and support them through donors who can decide to help them complete their studies and become who they want to become in life. All candidates to be selected will have to ensure FOBDA that they will help in curbing cases of poverty and unemployment through investments and business development rather than looking for jobs.

This project, runs in all the three countries that FOBDA is operating and is aimed being present in every district of these countries.


The vision of EAC is to see young people becoming effective in developing their communities through investments and business development


The mission of this project is to support young underprivileged African students with essential skills in business development.

It is through this project among other projects that FOBDA believes that cases of poverty and unemployment will be reduced in most African communities.

Chiyambi Community Project (CCP)

Despite having all the resources, African communities are still struggling with poverty. There are a number of reasons why African communities are still struggling up to now and one of the reasons is lack of knowledge on how to use their skills in micro and macro-economic development.

Due to high levels of poverty, many people are unable to continue with their education as a result, a circle of poverty develops whereby even their children are also found in the same poverty trap. For this reason, most of the communities find it difficult to get out of poverty. Reason for the Project
Chiyambi Community Project (CCP) is established to give rural and semi-urban communities business start-up skills as the name suggests.

Chiyambi is a Chewa name which means ‘beginning’ and in this context means Start-UP. This project is not only targeting the literate but also the illiterate who are economically active but marginalised people. This is in contribution to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that aim at eradicating
poverty, protect the planet and ensuring prosperity for everyone.
As a project that helps imparting skills to the community members, Chiyambi Community Project will also provide small business startup capital to the active community members that will help them start small businesses as a foundation for microenterprises.

The Vision
To see underprivileged African communities transformed economically, through micro-enterprise development and
sustain economic resources for future generation by 2030.

The Mission
To help poor communities with business start-up knowledge and skills as a step towards poverty eradication in Africa.

Benefits of CCP to Communities and Citizens

Chiyambi Community Project targets the poor communities who had no hope and even felt uncounted as agents of development. These communities will benefit as follows:

  • Communities will be able to support themselves in their projects through small business proceeds rather than solely depending on the government for support.
  • Many community members will afford the basic necessities of life such as food, clean water and shelter.
  • Community members will afford to pay school fees for their children. This will lead to a new generation becoming more educated in various skills. This will automatically break the circle of poverty.
  • Through sustainable means of microenterprise development, future generations will also be able to start businesses since resources will still be available for them.
