Our Story

Fabulous Friends for Africa is a group of women who joined together to organize and sponsor a Valentine’s Dance to raise funds for African Leadership. After ten years of faithful dedication, the founding women took a step to pass this event to the next generation. The 2020 dance will be put on and facilitated by the founding members’ daughters and their friends, in an effort to keep the dream and goal of the event alive for years to come.

Why African Leadership?

We believe strongly in African Leaderships mission of “Partnering with local leaders who are breaking the cycle of trauma and poverty in their own communities”. Through your generous support, we will be helping local African leaders care for their communities – equipping them to respond to specifically local needs: women recovering from a life on the streets, orphans dealing with the trauma of war, students learning community development skills, and much more.



In the 12 years we have hosted the Valentines Dance, we’ve raised more than $900,000 to benefit African Leadership. Together we have built an orphanage, built water wells, distributed bibles to community leaders and so much more.
