African Education Program (AEP)
Beneficiary Organization Partner
African Education Program (AEP) was founded by Hillary Bridges, Sarah Hayes, Christian Mark, and Julie-Anne Savarit-Cosenza, during their sophomore year of high school at Radnor High School, with the aim of supporting students suffering because of poverty and the AIDS epidemic in Zambia. They began their support by gathering school supplies, computers, and clothes to ship to Zambia, connected to a community by their native Zambian soccer coach. Within two years, AEP was registered as an official 501(c)3 charitable organization in the United States, and later on they were registered as a non-governmental organization recognized by the Zambian Ministry of Home Affairs.
Today, African Education Program dedicates its efforts to the Amos Youth Centre, which provides support to over 400 vulnerable and impoverished youth in Kafue, Zambia.
African Education Program Projects We Support
Youth Scholarship Fund
Inspired by the incredible stories of AEP’s college students, we’ve extended our support beyond one student and continue to raise funds for their ongoing youth scholarship fund, which supports dozens of college students in pursuing higher education.
