Description of Organization:

Innovation: Africa is a New York based 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to bring Israeli solar, water and agricultural technologies to rural African villages. Since its founding in 2008, Innovation: Africa (iA) has completed over 150 solar installations bringing light, access to clean water, improved education, refrigeration for vaccines and medicines, and proper nutrition and food security to over 1 million people in the most remote villages in Africa. iA currently operates in eight countries: Uganda, Malawi, Tanzania, Ethiopia, South Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal and Cameroon.

Our mission is to do all of this, while promoting a positive image of Israel around the world.

Everyone wants to make the world a bit brighter. That’s why Innovation: Africa created Mitzvah Campaigns — to let everyone make a difference. Bar and Bat Mitzvah kids from across the globe have celebrated by raising funds and awareness for Innovation: Africa’s projects on the ground. We set them up with a custom fundraising page, weekly fundraising updates, educational resources, fundraising ideas, more. Our custom campaigns make it easy for you to fundraise, and 100% of the money donated will be spent on our direct project costs. To learn more about our custom campaigns, click below:
We have even had Mitzvah campaigners travel to Africa to see the impact of their fundraising efforts in action.
