African and American Friendship Inc. is an organization that supports youth-leadership development in the Boston area. As a tutor a few years ago, I have seen how their programs has helped hundreds of youths make something positive out of their lives. From summer job placements to helping the youths gained entrance into post-secondary institutions, this organization has lived up to its expectation. They have accomplish so much with very limited funding. I have never seen a leader as hard working and relentless as Alusaine Deen. Their focus of helping disadvantaged and at risk youths is exemplary. This is an organization that has proven results and can be counted on. I can only imagine how much more they can do with adequate funding. If anyone in the Boston area is looking for a program for their kids, this is the right place to go because I have seen how it has impacted the lives of these youths. Najimu Gabisi.
