PiAf Logo Horizontal Tagline You may have already noticed – Princeton in Africa has a new look! We are excited to introduce our new logo and tagline. A number of former Fellows, partner organizations, supporters, PiAf board members and staff worked with Paragraph, a small agency in Philadelphia, to create the new look.

Our new logo and tagline are a great representation of who Princeton in Africa is today.

Logo. Our new, ribbon-like logo communicates the idea of our Fellows fluidly working together with our partners and communities across Africa, while also projecting a strong, professional feel. We are proud of our roots, and continue to have a vibrant Princeton orange, but the new colors reflect the diversity of today’s fellowship program. We are now open to recent graduates from any accredited college or university in the United States.

Tagline. Our new tagline – Service for a Year. Commitment for a Lifetime. – sums up what makes our program distinct: Princeton in Africa enables bright, hardworking, skilled young adults to help our partner organizations create meaningful change on the ground in Africa during their year of service. But Princeton in Africa brings so much more! Our Fellows, tomorrow’s leaders, are forever changed themselves in the process, and will remain engaged in the continent both personally and professionally in the years to come.

We also launched a new Princeton in Africa website late last year to better communicate with prospective applicants, partners, supporters and others interested in our work.

A big thank you to Paragraph for working so hard on the new logo and tagline, and giving us a reduced non-profit rate. And thank you to all of the PiAf supporters and friends who helped make this project possible!

Molly Fay, Fellow

Princeton in Africa was mentioned in Nicholas Kristof’s New York Times column about his 2011 “Win A Trip” contest. Kristof also mentioned Molly Fay, whose PiAf fellowship he used as an example of what a powerful experience it can be for a young person to work abroad in a development context.
