All Across Africa’s mission is to create jobs and markets to alleviate poverty in Africa.
That’s our target. Our aim. Our purpose.
All Across Africa (AAA) is a Benefit Corporation that brings the best of business practices through market development, training, and teaching to producers in Africa; most important, AAA connects these producers to our developed external markets.
Benefit Corporations are a new and revolutionary class of corporation. Benefit Corporations work to create a positive impact on society and the environment without losing sight of its bottom line. Learn more about our B-Corp certification here.
Our business model reaches deep into rural villages in the developing world and provides training and fair wage jobs that restore dignity and promote self-sufficiency - we see it as the way forward for sustainable development in Africa. It's the best of business and the best of the non-profit world, its social business.
WHERE WE WORK
WHAT WE DO - OUR SOLUTION
We are leading a new way of helping rural families achieve their full potential. Instead of giving handouts, we invest in artisans to generate a permanent gain in family income.
By providing artisans with a "market bundle" that includes education, finance, materials, training and market access, we present a poverty-reducing solution that is sustainable and helps restore dignity.
IMPACT ON FAMILIES
When buying directly from an African artisan, you're buying more than just a product. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You're buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You aren't just buying a thing; you're buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment in someone's life. Most important, you're buying an opportunity out of poverty for the artisan and his or her family.
