  • Adolescent Better Life Options Programs and Violence against Women

    The Foundation provides support, assistance, and education to the neglected young women of Africa. In this effort, the foundation provides counseling, training, and better life options to a number of young women and men on the streets without jobs or higher education. The Adolescent Better Life Options Programs have been providing opportunities in the poor neighborhoods by helping young women to actively participate in the economic mainstream of their society.

  • Non Communicable Diseases
    The increasing prevalence of Non-Communicable Diseases is a crisis which requires a global response. Cardiovascular diseases account for most of NCD deaths. Diet is a key factor in both prevention and treatment of most non communicable diseases. LGAF introduces a knowledge exchange forum to draw the drastic linkages between food, diet and non-communicable diseases as an international nutrition and development seminar. The need to scale up programs, increase iron fortified food production and nutritional quality to feed Africa’s growing population has also been highlighted in SDG programs. This is planned to engage governments and institutions across disciplines to increase awareness and involvement in developing and implementing policies and strategies to monitor and evaluate policy actions.

  • Autism
    Autism is a common illness, a lifelong condition beginning with children and persisting throughout adulthood There is little treatment for its core symptoms and it impacts many patients and families. 

    In Africa, these issues of complex disorders with brain development, difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors are hardly understood. 

    LGAF t raise awareness of Autism in Africa, stop  families of those with autism from seeking help from religious or spiritual leaders, rather than seeking a medical diagnosis.

    LGAF  dedicates professionals with resources to  improve the life of children and adults who live with autism. LGAF believes  in an effective intervention for autistic children in African Countries
