Adventures in Health, Education, and Agricultural Development (AHEAD) Inc. is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization whose mission is to work with under served communities in developing countries to improve the quality of life for orphans and other vulnerable children, women and youth by implementing sustainable programs that lead to self-sufficiency and self-reliance.




As one of the oldest African American led organizations partnering on a grassroots level through community-led development in rural Tanzania and the Gambia, AHEAD continues to help the communities we serve experience a reversal in disease and deprivation by implementing sustainable systems that are cost effective, replicable, and ecologically resourceful.



AHEAD INC succeeded in bringing life-sustaining programs to the most remote and resource-scarce areas of Africa. These areas have been hardest hit by epidemics and have been traditionally avoided by many organizations that choose instead to focus their work in African cities. AHEAD has made it a priority to reach these remote areas that are often inaccessible due to lack of roads and treacherous natural conditions.
