Serving education needs in West Africa

Our Mission, Our Work

Education is the key to a better life. Never has that been more evident than it is today in West Africa. So, that simple fact is what energizes charitable nonprofit organization E-quip Africa to collect (and refurbish) computers and school supplies for distribution to schools in this African nation that honors its traditions even as it builds and strengthens an economy clearly focused on the future.

A friendship between a former U.S. Peace Corps volunteer and a parish priest in Tarkwa, Ghana, West Africa, which began in the late 1980s has grown into E-Quip Africa — rooted in Willmar, Minnesota and now spreading to the metropolitan Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
