Get involved!

There are several ways you can get involved at Kafakumba. The most obvious ones are to pray and give. But for some of us, we want something else. Maybe we want to partner or even go to Kafakumba.  

Before checking out our options, we want to help fight some of the stereotypical ways that people try to "save Africa." To get an idea of how that feels from an African perspective, check out some of these (sometimes humorous but always serious) videos. Click on the yellow titles:

ONLY THEN check out our options to Pray, Partner, Give and Go.
