President of this company is Thomas H. Andrews who was a two term Democrat U.S House of representative and director of Win Without War. I haven't worked with this organization directly but reading online, their website and some of their financial records, I've concluded that it appears this organization is more political than actually getting their hands dirty and actually trying to help people.

Beginning in October 2010 I have been involved in the research and planning process for conservation and sustainable development work in the Great Lakes of East Africa region. After more than 30 years experience in systems analysis, financial analysis, intelligence analysis, and investigative reporting, I know how to separate the wheat from the chaff. In more than 6500 hours logged to date, I have developed a very large database and have two specific not-for-profit cases studies that I use to highlight a troubling conclusion. At the bottom of the barrel is this organization; only able to operate because there is an element in society that can sleep at night after fleecing the public for one or another so-called "good cause." You will note that this particular organization gas assumed several identities and a general "end genocide" search mentions others. It's quite a hook, but after flogging the Save Darfur brand for all it is worth...until there were diminishing returns, they dis a classic duck and weave as they cast their net even wider. They are not alone, sorry to say, but the very worst I have seem. In a related matter, my careful review of a large and top=rated charity, proved out the old adage about "too good to be true." They show exceptionally low findraisimng expenses and administrative costs (to earn their high rating) and all the rest is lumped together as program-related expenditures. It's troubling to see top grafes for an outfit that spends 40% of its direct program costs on security but when advertising for a security director in one country in particular they were not seeking someone with law enforcement or military experiebce; instead, they wanted 7-10 years experience in the NGO "game," and with proliferation to the extent I've seen -- more than 47,000 development organizations worldwide, the building of separate fiefdoms with ruibous overlap and duplication and an addiction to 5-star resorts to discuss what they're doing for the afflicted, I am beyond upset. That's because an unintended consequence of five centuries of exploitation and neglect leaves future population growth (another 1.7 billion by 2030) very much dependent on the moderniztion of the farm sector and the supporting infrastructur open to a large flow of funds and the diversion of funds would have fatal results on a scale that would make World War II look like a tempest in a teapot. Sub Saharan Africa has more than half the arable land available to meet this worldwide need so the potential calamity would not be confined there. A long message yes, but the syndicate I've reviewed here is a glaring example of the lack of accountability (or financial literacy) now prevailing. I'd make it my cause to shut this outfit down except for the fact that I'll be in Africa, a pkace where you'll never find them.

No transparency, no accountability. Overhead extremely high (over 30%) for a small non-profit such as this. No money actually goes to international efforts.
