AHEAD, Incorporated has made a tremendous difference in the health and survival of mothers, infants and youth, having touched the lives of millions in rural communities in Africa since 1981. The mission of AHEAD, Inc is to substantially reduce the maternal and infant morbidity and mortality rates; and, to cultivate and advance healthy living in rural communities in Tanzania and The Gambia. AHEAD implements innovative life-saving programs that build leadership among people living in rural communities. Beneficiaries are involved in all aspects of AHEAD programs, from conception of projects and programs, planning, implementing and giving oversight. The administrators and implementers of all programs are residents of the countries which ensures that programs are sustainable. I am most impressed with the reception and appreciation of beneficiaries of AHEAD, Incorporated. I commend the founders, board of directors, donors and all who have had some impact on AHEAD and its programs during its 30 plus years of providing services to the people of Tanzania and The Gambia.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

suggest that a profit-making arm be established to ensure funding for all programs.
