Our projects

AOH has successfully launched 5 internal initiatives towards sustainable social and economic development in West Africa. These projects fulfill dual objectives: 1 they provide affordable high-quality programs and services for our West African Clients; creating a financial stream for AOH and sustaining our mission to support sustainable development. 2) They provide an experiential service-learning experience for AOH Global Programs custom group and intern participants. As a nascent social-enterprise we invite public and private partnerships to ensure these projects fulfill their highest potential. These are some of our main projects:

Similar to their global counterparts, many young Francophone West Africans dream of careers with an international organization, to travel abroad or to simply understand movies and the lyrics to their favorite American or British songs. Those who are already established in their careers need English for business travel and to negotiate contracts. To support these goals Africa Our Home provides English training in school settings and through private or small-group coaching sessions.
