About Heineken Africa Foundation Grant

The Heineken Africa Foundation Grant provides social and economic wellbeing by investing in community ambitions that support our strategy and sustainability responsibilities via direct local donations, shared-value projects.

The Foundation has committed €10.7 million to 119 projects, of which 39 projects were still running in 2019.

In addition, it approved seven new projects involving a total investment of almost €720,000 in 2019. They include the renovation of mother and child health departments at health centers in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and Lubumbashi, DRC, and equipment for a neonatal intensive care unit in Benin City, Nigeria. Three more projects will bring drinking water to communities in Burundi and Sierra Leone.

Over the years, the Foundation has developed strong expertise in Mother & Child Healthcare and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). Nevertheless, these areas are crucial for the earliest years of life and are highly interdependent. Also, small improvements can have a big impact on communities, now and in the future.

The world poverty rates have been cut by more than half since 2000, but still, one in ten people in developing regions live with their families below the international poverty rate, on less than US$1.90 a day. Most people living below the poverty line – up to 42% of the population – live in Southern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
