Aid for Africa is a highly efficient organization that provides a unique service to nonprofits working in Sub-Saharan Africa. The organization provides financial support to some 80 different organizations that furnish urgently needed services to tens of thousands of people across the Continent. What makes Aid for Africa particularly effective is its emphasis on science-based development and the links that it provides it members to advanced research institutions. This effort helps ensure that member organizations have easy access to the latest technology in the fields of agriculture, environment and health. Aid for Africa's board, which is fully supportive of this effort, places a high priority on good governance, equity, and financial transparency. The board's work is facilitated by a small, but uniquely qualified and committed staff of development professionals.

I have been pleased to be on the board of Aid for Africa for a number of years. It was founded to help grassroots development on the ground in Sub Saharan Africa and it is doing that through its support of organizations focused on health, education, microfinance, agriculture, wildlife conservation, and more. Aid for Africa fosters partnership among these organizations, which work throughout Sub Saharan Africa, so that lessons and best practices can be shared and results improved. Aid for Africa is unique in its strong focus on research-focused development, which is reflected in its partnership with leading development organizations and its endowment at Tufts University that provides for graduate students to conduct research in Africa during the summer. I also find that Aid for Africa’s strict eligibility requirements and transparency ensures donors that financial contributions are well managed.
