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.

The Golf Fore Africa Team

Golf Fore Africa is dedicated to remaining a highly efficient organization with minimal operating expenses. We have only three full-time staff and utilize many wonderful volunteers for our events and special projects. Each officer provides management and oversight of the organization as well as funds to offset the administrative expenses of the operating budget.
