“War is the greatest plague that can affect humanity,” Dr. Martin Luther King once said. It is unfortunate that the ones that are most affected by it are the mothers and children who lose their husbands and fathers to the violence.
Jaribu Africa was established in Raleigh to offer these unfortunate victims of conflict rebuild their lives. We provide them with basic needs such as food and clothing. More importantly, our organization works at giving them a livelihood such as selling tomatoes, fresh water, and soap.
Our Board of Trustees and directors are here in the United States to gather donations and most staff members are working in our base of operations in Africa.
