Akon's Konfidence Foundation


R&B singer/producer Akon founded the 
Konfidence Foundation to increase public awareness of the conditions in Africa and to provide underprivileged African youth with access to learning and recreational environments equipped with modern technology, educational materials, recreational resources, and health and wellness services.

The foundation concentrates their efforts in Senegal, in hopes that it will one day serve as the international platform to empower individuals, communities, and nations with the tools needed to build the Africa of tomorrow.

Akon recently partnered with singer 
Peter Buffet on the relaunch of the website, Is There Something I Can Do? Visit website here.
