Brief History


Tony Abuta

Founder, Amsha Africa Foundation.

Amsha Africa Foundation was built literally from the ground up-born as a result of founder Tony Abuta’s quest to use affordable technology to improve the living standards of many of the communities that live in poverty in the developing world.
In early 2008 Tony travelled to Kenya to implement the ground work of the foundation. He worked closely with the community groups, local authorities and other non-profit organizations to find programs best suited to the mission of Amsha Africa Foundation.
Returning back to the US, Tony enlisted supportive friends and began raising money to fund the programs back in Kenya and other developing countries.
In May 2008, Amsha Africa Foundation implemented the Nairobi Slums Projects that promoted free medical checkups, tree planting, environmental cleanup, training workshops geared to teach the local community about self-help programs, free testing for STDs, eye and dental problems. This program has touched the lives of thousands of people living in some of the world’s largest slums.
Amsha Africa Foundation works with several communities in multiple African and South American Countries and is engaged in a number of programs that are geared at improving the lives of impoverished communities that the foundation serves.
