Website Golf Fore Africa



GFA is a 501(C)3 corporation engaging the golf community and compassionate community members to fund clean water for extremely impoverished children and families in Africa.

Why water?

WATER GIVES LIFE. Water should give life, not take it. Dirty, disease-ridden water robs a child of more than the time it takes to collect it. It can steal their education. Their health. Even their life!  More than 700 children still die each day due to diarrhea caused by unsafe water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).

WASH are essential for children and their families to live healthy, prosperous lives. WASH is at the core of child health and development and is vital for a child’s well-being. We focus on helping bring clean water, dignified sanitation and effective hygiene practices to communities, schools and healthcare facilities.

The world has made a commitment to ensure that everyone has access to safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene by 2030.  Golf Fore Africa is playing a significant part in achieving this goal by collaborating with our Implementation Partner, World Vision.
