Collects and recycles clothing from the US to support sustainable projects primarily in Africa to help the poorest communities improve incomes, food production, health and education.
Since 1997, Planet Aid has helped millions of the neediest people around the world through HIV/AIDS prevention, education, food production, and income-generation programs. We work mostly in rural communities to build capacity and mobilize our program participants to take the future into their own hands. In Africa, we work with partners in Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
Many in rural Africa face the challenge of absolute poverty daily, and the AIDS epidemic has added to the struggle with disastrous effects on every level of African society. Planet Aid’s programs make a difference in the lives of the poor.
