Harambee Africa International is an international association based in Rome, created in 2002 on the occasion of the canonization of Saint Josemaría Escrivá, founder of Opus Dei.

Harambee wishes to contribute to promoting the different realities of Sub-Saharan Africa through two main lines of action:​

  • Strengthen the capacity of local human resources, supporting African entities in the execution of projects in the field of basic education, vocational training, academia and business.

  • Deepen the knowledge of Africa to overcome stereotypes and contribute to a culture of coexistence and complementarity.


Harambee Africa International celebrates its 20th anniversary through Be to Care, involving those who work for human development not only in Africa, but throughout the world.

The third day of the event will be devoted entirely to celebrating and recognizing the organization's achievements over the past two decades. 

Since 2002, Harambee Africa International has promoted more than 100 projects in 22 countries: Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Botswana, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Ethiopia, Guinea Bissau, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania Togo and Uganda.
