About Africhange

The Africhange Foundation is a non-profit organization aimed at supporting African immigrants. Our objective is to support Africans on their journey, wherever they are in the world. This is because, as Africans ourselves, we understand the difficulties involved in leaving one's own country to find greener pastures elsewhere—the conditions that influence such decisions and the courage required to act. No one has to go it alone.

That's why we're here to support you. As our pilot project, we will be launching: "The Africhange Foundation Student Support Grant."

The Africhange Foundation Student Support Grant (AFSSG)

In our pioneering effort, we're excited to offer 20 deserving African students studying abroad grants worth $2500 (CAD) each. These grants are designed to provide essential starting support and sustenance on your journey. As staunch advocates for African success, we envision these grants creating a ripple effect, transforming the lives of recipients and enabling them to uplift their communities, no matter where they are.
