AHEAD, Inc. (Adventures in Health, Education, and Agricultural Development) is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization founded in 1981. Our mission is to work with under-served communities in developing countries to improve the quality of life for orphans and other vulnerable children, women and youth. We do this by implementing sustainable programs that lead to self-sufficiency and self-reliance.We bring life-sustaining programs to remote areas of Africa. These areas have been traditionally avoided by many organizations. It is a priority for us to reach areas that are often inaccessible due to lack of roads and treacherous natural conditions.
AHEAD is one of the oldest African-American-led organizations with community-led development in rural Tanzania and The Gambia. AHEAD continues to help the communities we serve reduce disease and deprivation. This is achieved by implementing sustainable systems that are cost-effective, replicable, and ecologically resourceful.
