ASAP's mission is to cultivate self-reliance by providing access to education, skills training and knowledge that endure for a lifetime.
ASAP was created by two returned Peace Corps volunteers who met and married while teaching high school in rural Africa. Through this experience they gained an understanding of how so little can do so much! How truly life changing access to education can be for a girl whose family only has enough money to send her brothers to school. How a basic set of tools for a vocational school graduate means the difference between a productive life and a life of poverty. How a woman who was but a powerless victim, with no voice in her home, becomes empowered with confidence when she earns her own money by joining an ASAP savings club. We hope you will be generous and help ASAP as we continue this work to empower others.
