Angels & Doves is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization located in the United States that works closely with many disadvantaged, poor and rural communities in West Africa on social and public health issues.
Our goal is to provide clean and potable water in very poor and rural communities in West Africa so that the people from those communities don't have to walk miles to the nearest source of water, which is unprotected and likely to make them sick. We believe that by doing so, communities can stay healthy, go to work, and start working themselves out of poverty.
Our goal is to reduce gender disparities on education in urban and developing areas of Africa through different means such as computer literacy. We believe that education is a strong tool for women's empowerment. In Cameroon, the female literacy rate is 59.8% because girls attend school less regularly than boys. In the republic of Guinea, the literacy rate is estimated at 29.5% for adults (42.6% of males and 18.1% of females). This makes it challenging for women to integrate into society and get jobs since they are under educated.
Angels & Doves wants to empower women through computer literacy by offering them professional computer training. With specific professional programs, women from those urban and developing areas can have a chance to work themselves out of poverty. We believe that women are the heart and soul of a family; therefore, empower women is part of our mission.
Angels and Doves also provides basic computer training to disadvantaged and underprivileged children, donates computers to underequipped schools and orphanages.
