To bring hope and change to children & families living in extreme poverty in Africa by empowering the golf community to support transformational programs that holistically enhance the families we serve.

Join Golf Fore Africa in leaving a generational legacy by
ending the global water crisis within our lifetime.


Water should give life, not take it. Dirty, disease-ridden water robs a child of more than the time it takes to collect it. It can steal their education. Their health. Even their life!

Every day nearly 1,000 children younger than 5 years old die from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and unsafe hygiene practices. Women and children in sub-Saharan Africa spend over 20 million hours collecting water every day.


Hall of Fame Golfer Betsy King founded Golf Fore Africa in 2007 following a life-changing trip with World Vision to Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, and Zambia.
