Project Africa Global, Inc.

Project Africa Global, Inc. (PAG) was initially formed as a program under the umbrella of the Economic Development Fund Foundation, a Los Angeles-based, non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 1997 and incorporated in 1998. Over the past 10 years, PAG has supported the Foundation's projects in Ghana, West Africa, Nigeria, Liberia and Swaziland. As of 2005, PAG has its own 501(c)3 non-profit status and is recognized as a charitable organization in the State of California and State of Pennsylvania. PAG continues to provide direct medical and educational humanitarian aid to refugees, men, women and children in developing countries and the United States. We have developed and implemented community service and internship programs at the high school, college, graduate and post-graduate levels, as well as for medical students and physicians-in-training. These experiences not only fulfill academic requirements for the participants but also enable these volunteers to gain invaluable and life-altering experiences that significantly impact their lives and career choices.

Mission
