PTPI Africa is an amazing area of the global PTPI family. They bring together a uniquely diverse and dedicated community of volunteers, covering a truly diverse set of social issues on an amazingly resilient continent. There are 54 countries in Africa, and we hope one day to have a presence in each location.
PTPI Africa as a non-profit organization, brings together volunteers, local staff, and donors to tackle the issues facing African communities. We work in partnership with communities through our programmatic work to build a better future for all. The officers that serve the continent of Africa, our African Executive Committee (AEC or Council) are all established members living and working locally. They bring the expertise and practical experience we need to be effective change agents at a grass-roots level.
There are 54 countries in Africa today, according to the United Nations. The population of Africa is 1,332,277,026 as of Wednesday, April 1, 2020, based on the latest United Nations estimates. Africa’s population is equivalent to 16.72% of the total world population. Africa ranks number 2 among regions of the world (roughly equivalent to “continents”), ordered by population.
