Connecting Resources, Knowledge and Needs

Welcome to the extended family of people who are dedicated to lifting up Africa.

Lift Up Africa (LUA) is a U.S.-based non-profit organization with an extensive network of partners and projects in East and Southern Africa. We support sustainable, community-led projects that address poverty, malnutrition, scarcity of potable water, lack of education and poor healthcare, as well as the impact of climate change on people, crops and livestock. Each project we support is carefully selected by our staff, with input from our partners, donors, and volunteers.

LUA has learned that simple, beautiful and small is effective. It does not take huge expenditures to improve lives or provide a healing touch. Simple, inexpensive solutions make a real difference in the lives of the people touched by our projects.

Please join us in our work and help us change lives.
