The Issues

In many parts of Africa, people with albinism are misunderstood, mistreated and even attacked or killed. We work for a day when people with albinism will take their rightful place in every level of society and the days of discrimination will be a faint memory. Across Africa, people with albinism face issues around:

  • Discrimination & Rejection
  • Superstition & Witchcraft
  • Human Rights Abuse & Attacks
  • Health Issues

How We Help

Through education and advocacy, we aim to empower students with albinism, provide protection and support, raise awareness and build a brighter future where people with albinism can take their place throughout society.

Education and Support

We provide high-quality education and protection to students with albinism. Education breaks the cycle of injustice, poverty and marginalization.
