Who we are:
The Develop Africa Trust was set up to originate, develop, implement and monitor sustainable solutions to poverty and illiteracy in Africa Sub-Sahara by creating opportunities for local communities to produce what they need whilst creating jobs and providing free training for youths with minimal education.

To achieve this, we recruit young men and women with a minimal education, train them and employ them in our uniform and sandal making workshops.
