The Africare Committee implements youth hunger, women’s health, economic empowerment and water sanitation initiatives on the continent of Africa. The Africare Committee collects monthly donations from chapter members for youth hunger and women’s health. The committee partners with other Pan African groups with programs.  In 2015, the committee collected over $5000 from chapter members. These donations were sent to Africare for support of youth hunger and women’s health. In 2016, the committee sent sponsorship to the Beads for Education for two girl’s school /boarding fees in Kenya. Another sponsorship was sent to buy a bicycle through the African Bicycle Contribution Foundation. The bicycles are made in Ghana and provide transportation for those who resides in rural areas to have means to transport food and medicine.
