  Who We Are

Founded in 1965, Operation Bootstrap Africa (OBA) is a non-profit organization that partners with communities in Tanzania, Kenya, and Madagascar. Grounded in a “self-help” philosophy, Bootstrap works in partnership with local groups, uses local resources, and follows local priorities.

Today, OBA supports a broad range of projects that improve access to education, provide healthcare, support sustainable agriculture, and more.
