Africa! Ignite is deeply indebted to all our highly valued partners who share our vision and who collaborate with us in different ways to bring us closer to achieving our vision and turning our ideas into reality. Without their goodwill, support and willingness to work in partnership, Africa!Ignite would not have been able to achieve what we have achieved. We are very grateful to all partners and strive to never take their contributions for granted.

We are particularly grateful to all the local community, government, tribal and civil society partners who have welcomed us into their communities and whose collaboration has been essential for success.

Unfortunately we cannot recognise all our partners by name, but we are grateful to every one for trusting us enough to partner with us, for sharing our vision and for their support These are some of the partners with whom we have had formal partnerships, and whose financial and in-kind contributions have helped to develop and sustain our organisation.
