Akon Launches Konfidence Foundation to Give Back to Africa & the United States
Founded by Aliaune “Akon” Thiam and Ms. Kine Gueye Thiam in 2007, the Konfidence Foundation is dedicated to empowering youth in Senegal, West Africa and the United States by promoting health and education, and supporting impoverished families. Akon and Ms. Kine’s vision is that one day our concentrated efforts in Senegal and the United States will serve as an international platform to unite these two great nations and help build the Africa of tomorrow.
The Konfidence Foundation is proud to be a part of higher learning. With the help of our team and surrounding schools, we are able to provide the youth with books for learning and simple enjoyment. The power in reading makes our youth confident in their endeavors.
The greatest joy of being a part of the Konfidence Foundation is giving. There is nothing more special than seeing our youth whom are less fortunate receive gifts to make their holiday a memorable one. The greatest gift of all is being able to give back to those who don't have.
