About Us

In 2005..

Chick-fil-A operators began a partnership with Schools for Niger, Africa by hosting the first annual charity dodgeball tournament in Richmond, VA. In 2008, Atlanta Chick-fil-A joined in the effort by hosting their own successful sport tournaments. Chick-fil-A Connect Race and Chick-fil-A Charity Golf Challenge are now part of the Schools for Niger, Africa family.

For many children in this fourth world nation, education is considered a luxury and is not easily accessible. Even if a child is able to attend an elementary school, the opportunity to continue on to middle and high school is very limited. Higher quality education may offer students greater hope for vocational options to help or inspiration to become future influential leaders in their own country. Schools for Niger, Africa is working diligently to provide excellent and affordable K-12 Christian schools for every family in Niger.

We believe providing a Christian education for future leaders of Niger will have a profound impact on this nation. Schools for Niger, Africa exists to build Christ-centered schools which teach the gospel of Jesus Christ and produce Christian leaders.
