Mission: Mission Statement The Asteria Foundation donates funds to worthy causes so their work directly benefits the people of the world who most need it.

[10/01/12]   We are very happy to announce that The Asteria Foundation has sent their first field worker to monitor and evaluate their project in Liberia, one of many projects around the globe. The International Projects Coordinator traveled to Monrovia to meet with The More Than Me Foundation that we are collaborating with. We take girls off the street and put them in school, in the slum of West Point. The project is amazing and truly makes a difference in the girls' lives by giving them a chance to go to school, learn to read and write, and have a choice for their future.
Pictures will come soon!

Thank you to all who support us in our mission of fighting the cycle of poverty worldwide!

Drought returns to West Africa’s Sahel, bringing hunger as crisis looms

What actions can we take in West Africa's looming drought to avoid the thousands of threatened deaths lost in past droughts?

washingtonpost.com DAKAR, Senegal — For the third time in the past decade, drought has returned to the arid, western shoulder of Africa, bringing hunger to millions. Aid agencies are warning that if action is not taken now, the region known as the Sahel could slip into crisis.

[01/18/12]   We have started the projects of building a well, and providing beds/mosquito nets to the small community of Tawa Fall, outside of Thies, Senegal. The beds have been ordered, and will be delivered in 21 days. The well will start construction on Monday. We will be posting more pictures to keep you up-to-date with the projects!

General information

Our Vision The Asteria Foundation’s vision isn’t full of flowery words or lofty speech. That’s because we’re about solving the problem, not talking about them. We envision a world where poverty has been conquered, not through endless donations, but through educating the victims of poverty and giving them the chance to start their own businesses and become self sufficient. Through key partnerships with existing foundations and organizations, we believe that reaching our goals is possible in our lifetime.
