Lift Up Africa (LUA) collaborates with local partners to support programs that encourage self-reliance and provide solutions to disease, hunger, unemployment, and the lack of education. Its programs strive to use local labor and materials whenever possible and concentrate on basic needs such as clean water, health care, continual food supplies and dependable energy sources. LUA aims to assist with projects that lead to independence and community ownership; to provide a hand up and not a hand out.
Lift Up Africa (LUA) provides collaborative support to groups referred to as Fiscal Sponsors (FS) so they can utilize a 501c3 status. When LUA agrees to be a project’s FS, it becomes its legal entity in the United States providing it assistance with their programs in Africa, their grant writing requirements, administrative services, accounting, human resources and legal oversight activities.
Wanting to make a difference in the world is an easy decision but figuring out how to manage a non-profit takes a specialized team. When a group becomes a project of LUA it has confidence its legal and compliance issues are professionally managed allowing them the ability to focus on their programs and those in need.
