About Us

We are a global community of change makers.

Africa is a continent that abounds with rich culture, centuries-old history and natural resources. Its population is as diverse as it is inspiring, yet the one aspect almost all communities in Africa share is a tenacity to survive. Many have faced unimaginable hardships, including war, famine, water droughts, disease, and aching poverty. Every day, thousands struggle to provide their villages and families with the most basic human needs.

This is why the Obakki Foundation exists. Our work in South Sudan, Uganda and Cameroon focuses on pillars of development including clean water, education, agriculture, women’s initiatives, vocational training and medical care.

With clean water, communities in Africa can do more than just survive; they can thrive. A safe, reliable source of water is the foundation for growth in all other areas of life. Our model is simple: we drill wells, monitor their adoption, and then expand development in villages that show a capacity for maximizing their newfound resource. By working together to develop long-term solutions for growth, communities are able to build homes, engage in trade, and send their children to school.

Since 2009, we have drilled and rehabilitated over 1000 water wells and brought water to over 1.5 million people.

We’ve built collaborative and trusting relationships with the local governments and the United Nations, creating a supportive network that expands our reach. 100% of all donations go directly to our projects. The Obakki clothing line absorbs all of our administrative costs. We believe that donations have the biggest impact when directed to the areas of greatest need.

At the Obakki Foundation we treat our supporters as partners in our efforts, providing them with regular updates that directly connect them to the projects they support.
