Brief History

Amsha Africa Foundation is the product of Tony Abuta’s determination to use cost-effective technology to enhance the standard of living in impoverished communities across the Global South. 

In early 2008, Tony travelled to Kenya to lay the foundation for the organization, collaborating with local authorities, non-profits, and community groups to determine the most effective programs for the Foundation’s mission. After returning to the US, Tony mobilized his friends to raise funds for programs in Kenya and other countries in the Global South.

In May 2008, Amsha Africa Foundation launched the Nairobi Slums Projects, providing free medical checkups, environmental cleanup, tree planting, and training workshops to teach the community about self-help programs. The program also offered free testing for STDs, eye and dental problems, improving the lives of thousands of people in some of the world’s largest slums.

Today, Amsha Africa Foundation operates in several communities globally and runs a multitude of programs aimed at enhancing the lives of underprivileged communities.
