I have known Sylvester for about 3 years I think. He had called me with a job, to build a crate to ship supplies (in this case a lectern) to aid teaching children in Africa. Since meeting him, he and I have corresponded back and forth a few times over different subjects. I have great faith that Mr. Renner is smart and has only the best intentions and motivation for helping his chosen (less fortunate) in how ever manner he can.

warm regards, Jeff Keller

I want to thank Develop Africa for the good work they are doing. They supports my schools with 10 Drums school materials in Sierra Leone. May God continue to bless them.

New Life Project Inc. is very grateful for all the moral and financial support that we have received over the years from Develop Africa Inc. as we thrive to achieve our mission in Azope, Cote D'Ivoire. The financial support has transformed lives of young women giving them an opportunity to further their education or start a small business which helps them regain their self- esteem and find economic independence. It is their generosity and belief in our mission that enables us to perform our work.

As a partner( Adullam Missions Evangelistic Network) with Develop Africa for a couple of years, it has been a joy and pleasure in working with them. They are truly what a Nonprofit should be. Delivering real aid to real people with utmost sense of responsibility, accountability and transparency. Their networking ability has been their sense of strength and so you can always count on them.

DA has been working with CAPEC for some years now. It has empowered not only the children but the organization as well. I like DA for its constant support to our organization and also the link they create with different partners and individuals wishing to support our activities. I like DA for its openness, transparency, accountability and above all, its generosity. I also like DA because they are faithful to their partners and they make such they support them each year, no matter how little they can get. They are fast in responding to mails, which makes administrative work faster.

DA is doing a great job to African NGO especially in Countries and partners they work with. Through their partners, they provide education to children who are orphans and had no future. DA gives them the opportunities to better their lives and get out of poverty.

Develop Africa has a strong and clear commitment to helping to making a visible change in Africa. I admire the transparent manner in which Develop Africa operates and handles funds. Develop Africa does not only provide funds and stays behind, they (or their volunteers) go right to the filed to see and evaluate the impact of the work the are doing.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping children in underprivileged schools have access to information technologies to improve their learning abilities.

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

not sure at this moment what I would change.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

transparent handling of funds

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

hardworking and committed.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

connect millions of schools to the internet in Africa

Ways to make it better...

I probably had the chance of vising them in the USA

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding, material and human resources.

One thing I'd also say is that...

they deserve they support of any good people.
