It finally happened – what we’ve been working towards since October 2012!

Our first financial transfer is now a reality, as funding has been sent to start of the first three students in Ghana.

It is huge and has great importance for our further work to find members, sponsors and others who may contribute to our efforts to support higher education for young people in Ghana.

AfriCAN would like to thank everyone who has contributed – members and other donors – for support. Without it, it was not possible.

The three young people who are being supported this time round are (from left): Sumaila Salifu, Civil Economy, Baba Imoro Alhassan, Civil Economy & Napaga Mohammed, Diploma in Education (teacher).

De 3 første studerende

All three need to finish the final year of their training before they can go out and apply for their dream job.

Flea market with AfriCAN

Sunday 4th May at 11-16  AfriCAN is participating in the flea market at the Student House in Copenhagen.

Here we will sell secondhand clothes, shoes and other things for Project EduAfrica and we hope that many of you want to swing by, make a good deal and support the work. We also welcome clothing items, shoes and jewelry that we can sell. If you have something that you would like to donate, please send us an email at or stop by the Student House with it.

Read more about the event here.

We look forward to see you!


AfriCAN is now open for members singing up. This is a huge step forward for us!

We have two different forms of membership – support membership and regular membership.
Unfortunately only people with a Danish bank account can sign up.
If you have a Danish bank account and would like to become a member, please contact us at

We have a goal of reaching 300 members in 2014, which would make AfriCAN a tax-deductable organization. However, that goal is only achievable if we all contribute. So become a member of AfriCAN and take part in the work of realizing the young people’s dreams of further education and sustainable development in Africa.
