Dream for Future Africa foundation was founded by Gelila Assefa Puck in 2010 and is dedicated to providing opportunity and equity for those most in need in Africa. The foundation’s primary focus is the economic sustainability of African families whose children are too often thrust into the working world without the appropriate training and skill-set to rise in the world, thus creating a middle class for Africa.
