I had the sincere pleasure of working with Aid For Africa and learning the details of how they support a wide range of great organizations around the continent. AFA's mission is distinct and a significant part of what makes them so valuable for the types of work their member organizations perform. Rather than trying to directly deliver many things for the myriad needs of Africa, AFA directly supports many small, targeted, tactical nonprofits that are on the ground in Africa delivering a range of services and supplies. Some of these members, I suspect, would barely be able to function without the financial and strategic support AFA is able to provide.

Aid for Africa supports a network of great non-profits that provide life-saving services to tens of thousands of people across Africa. One of its most important objectives is to support girls education. Aid for Africa recognizes and emphasizes that educated women raise educated children and that when women can care of their families everyone benefits. In addition, as a member of Aid of Africa, our small non-profit has benefited not only from the financial support we receive, but from our association with other member groups and the opportunity to collaborate with them in ways that increase the effectiveness and efficiency of our programs.

I wouldn’t change much. Aid for Africa is a huge success story. If I were to make any changes, I would perhaps invest more time and resources in demonstrating to the public that investing small amount of money through the organization provides a high return on investment.

We have been pleased with the assistance that our small grass roots organization has received from Aid for Africa (AFA) over the past 6 years. Our small non-profit group, Medicine for Mali, works with about 11,000 people in nine different rural villages in Mali. With the help of Aid for Africa, we have been focusing on five areas: school education, microfinance, clean water, medical and public health education. AFA has the same ideas as we do in helping the people in the villages in Mali. Some of them are the following: increase the education for the girls, give the people a sense of accomplishment and resposibility with a microfinance loan, provide clean water with deep wells in order to improve health, provide medicine and medical supplies to the village clinics and finally to teach the people the importance of good health by educating them about proper nutrition and healthy practices. AFA has helped Medicine for Mali to make a big difference in this small part of the world. Dave Merschman , President , Medicine for Mali
