How We Work

We invest in human capital to build thriving individuals, communities, and sustainable livelihoods.


Building on a 20-year foundation, we are increasing access to and improving the quality of education, while providing leadership training and lifelong development to help young people thrive and emerge as the next generation of Africa’s leaders.


Our programs build greater capacity in health institutions and alleviate persistent challenges such as stunting and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Along with partners, Higherlife Foundation has spearheaded a multi-sectoral response that seeks to eliminate Cholera and other water-borne diseases in Zimbabwe by 2030.

Job Creation

We champion entrepreneurship as a path to self-sufficiency by providing the necessary resources to create new entrepreneurs and strengthen those already on the ground, resulting in more jobs and increased prosperity across our communities.

Rural Transformation

Recognizing the potential that grassroots projects hold to transform communities, our programs empower remote and underserved rural dwellers through life-changing grants, loans, and capacity development.

Women’s Empowerment

We believe that when you empower a girl or woman, she becomes a catalyst for positive change. Our programs promote gender equality and champion inclusive and open societies where women and girls are empowered to fully participate and make meaningful contributions.
