Artists For A New South Africa

ansafrica-logo.jpgArtists For A New South Africa (ANSA) was founded in 1989 by Ms. Alfre Woodard, Danny Glover, Blair Underwood, Mary Steenburgen, CCH Pounder, and Robert Guillaume. Their fight started to support South Africa for their right for freedom. They continue to fight for this amazing country that is filled with children who are orphaned by the deadly AIDS virus.

ANSA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to combating the African AIDS pandemic and advancing democracy and equality in South Africa. ANSA also works to further civil rights and safeguard voting rights in the U.S.

Since 1995, ANSA has raised over $8 million for effective South African nonprofits which…

  • Fight HIV/AIDS
  • Strengthen democracy
  • Combat hunger and malnutrition
  • Improve education and reduce illiteracy
  • Provide advanced training for African journalists and emerging leaders
  • Offer arts programs and training for disadvantaged youth
  • Develop micro-enterprises to reduce poverty and unemployment amongst young adults
  • Fund women’s economic self-help farming and craft cooperatives
  • Promote and preserve South African culture and history
  • Provide psychological assistance and rehabilitation for South African survivors of torture and former child soldiers in Mozambique.
