Welcome to CorAfrica

Children of Rural Africa (CorAfrica) is dedicated to providing high quality holistic services and programs for impoverished children and their families in rural Africa. We are focused on children as the building block of future progress, committed to rebuilding and renewing rural communities, and dedicated to answering God’s call to serve the most vulnerable members of society. We believe that nonprofit is a legal designation, not a mode of operation. Instead of “not for profit”, we aim to be “for-impact” in everything we do, from social media and communication to treating patients and providing clean water. Find out more about what motivates us by reading our Resolution and join us in our fight against poverty and disease by donating and getting involved.

Groton Rotary Club Supports Skills Acquisition Center in Obudu

The Groton, NY chapter of the International Rotary Club recently donated the proceeds of their fall calendar sale to support the work of CorAfrica. We are extremely grateful for their generous contribution, which is only the most recent installment in a long history of support from the Groton Rotary Club. They donated a total of $700, which will go a long way in moving CorAfrica’s work forward in Cross River State, Nigeria. In particular, their donation will go toward the construction of our skills acquisition center in Ipong-Obudu at Little Flower School. Each contribution we receive brings us closer to completing the project so that we can begin holding classes for local community members, particularly women. Training at the center will provide local entrepreneurs with the technical skills, business acumen, financial management tools, and mentoring they need to start or expand their own business. The economic empowerment and financial independence developed at our centers raise the standard of living for entire families and, little by little, entire communities.

      When TIME Magazine chose Pope Francis as Man of the Year in 2013, its managing editor Nancy Gibbs remarked how the world’s focus is now shifting from bureaucratic power sharing to care and compassion. “The leader of the Catholic Church has become the new voice of conscience, capturing the hearts of many in just 9 months of his pontificate”, she observed. Since 2006, Children of Rural Africa (CORAfrica) founded under the philosophy of the dignity of the human person, solidarity with weaker members of society and pursuance of the common good, has grown to become a voice for the poor and vulnerable children and youth in Africa. We have increased our commitment to improving the lives of rural children by expanding our programs, reorganizing our structures, and training our staff to meet the 21st century challenges of promoting sustainable livelihood.  Read More Here
