The work of African road is not charity or aid– it is empowerment for transformation, fueled by friendship and stories of hope.
It all started when Kelly Bean and Lori Martin visited Rwanda in 2007. They met inspiring East Africans who had a vision for their countries and communities. They kept in touch and began to form long-term friendships.
From these friendships developed a new model of giving: one that was sensitive to the local economy and culture and the significance of the individual. In 2010, African Road received tax-exempt status, and the story has been growing since then.
