The Story

BLOOM Africa’s mission is to build and support local partnerships to strengthen communities and improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children, and was founded right here in Ohio! After traveling to Lesotho, Africa on a service trip, students and alumni from Wittenberg University launched this wonderful initiative in spring of 2010.

The Need

Lesotho is plagued by extreme economic hardship, alarmingly high rates of HIV/AIDS, poverty, droughts causing food shortages, and corresponding malnutrition. Together these factors have stunted the country’s development making it one of the world’s least-developed countries.

 

The Impact

Thanks to the team of incredible volunteers, BLOOM Africa has built strong partnerships in the Lesotho community and around the world to develop on-going and one-time projects, and created Community Learning Centers that empower orphans and vulnerable children while also enriching the communities in which they live.

On-going projects include the Ramabanta Community Garden, and Leratong Community Learning Center!

Completed projects include the Samaritan’s Feet Project, Orphan Emergency Relief Fund, Little Angles Initiative: Day Care Orphanage, Clean Water Project, and the Laptop Education Package!

100% of ticket proceeds and 50% of all art purchases go directly to support BLOOM Africa in providing educational opportunities to orphans in Lesotho, Africa.

Unite for a cause. Unite for art.

I hope you’ll join us this Thursday!
