To inspire and enhance families in need through education, technology, sports, and community outreach, globally.
At 44.5 Foundation, we have chosen to empower youth, families and communities in the areas of clean water wells, education, sports, and community outreach assistance.
We seek some of the most distress areas in Atlanta, GA and Africa to commit our efforts. Current projects include education assistance in Atlanta, GA and building clean water wells in Cameroon, Africa. We also support underprivileged students with school supplies and community services in both Atlanta, GA and Cameroon, Africa. Our mission is to impact lives, irrespective of their beliefs.
