Rating: 5 stars  

I have served in the Board of Develop Africa Inc. Develop Africa Inc. has a clear and compelling vision. I was struck by the outstanding work ethic and great organizational skills of its staff and volunteers. During field trips in Africa I noticed the impact the organization has on schools, small business owners and youth providing training and scholarship for education.

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

In Sierra Leone where I have seen the effect of books, schools supplies and scholarship in supporting schools and the education of underprivileged children. In Sierra Leone providing basic computer training for youths.
