Rural & Economic Development
The Chife Foundation envisions a future of livable, self sustaining African communities that are environmentally friendly and economically vibrant. Using appropriate technologies, we initiate projects that improve regional infrastructure, enhance agricultural production and services, and promote diversification of economies to improve the quality of life.

The Chife Foundation aims to ensure Africa’s rightful place in the global community by investing in education. Africa can only leapfrog into the technological age if a certain critical mass of our largely youthful population achieves a certain minimum level of education. It has become self-evident that if Africa fails to invest in the education of its youth, it shall continue to lag behind the rest of the world and forever remain on the periphery of the global commons. Therefore, the Chife Foundation offers scholarships to brilliant students who cannot reach their potential without financial support and supports their advancement through the Fellows Program.
Climate change affects poor nations, who are least equipped to
deal with its effects, the most. While we cannot control what other nations do in their contribution to ozone layer depletion and other practices whose net effect is to worsen and speed up climate change, we can all be more aware of the effects of our personal actions and inactions on the climate. The Dr. Aloy and Gesare Chife Foundation practices and engages African communities in initiatives that are aimed at:
- Protecting against environmental hazards and degradation
- Promoting the adoption and production of reusable energy
- Encouraging proper disposal and the habit of recycling
