Sub-Saharan Africa boasts a spectacular landscape. Amazing sand dune formations, contrasted by the rocky terrain of the sun baked soil. Likewise its people are diverse and beautiful! But their lives have been adversely affected as a result of years of political and religious and conflict. More than anything we want to see the quality of their lives improve; illiteracy and poverty eradicated.
Christian values are the bedrock of JIL Foundation International. It was the clear voice of God that directed the creation of our organization. So in 2011 out of obedience to God’s voice and our love for the people of sub-Saharan Africa our company was birthed. We believe education is the key to poverty eradication so it is the foundation of our programs. Our first school , The English Language and Computer Technology Center in Nouakchott, Mauritania has already impacted the lives of many who have attended, completed their exams and gone on to college and careers.
We are excited about the future of JIL Foundation International. We will be operating in four countries: Mauritania, Senegal, Burkina Faso and Niger. Our primary focus will be the rural areas and tribal communities. Our programs are designed to educate and empower people, close the gender disparity gap while developing entrepreneurs and support systems.
