Millions of Americans travel internationally each year. Whether we're overseas for a week, a month, a season, or a school year ("study abroad," anyone?), we come back changed. Sometimes that change is for the worse. Sometimes it's for the better. Rarely, however, does it convert a 26-year-old into a social entrepreneur on the scale of Justin Zoradi.

Don't miss the fact that These Numbers Have Faces works. It's growing. And it's poised for much more growth. Why? These Numbers Have Faces empowers African young adults to pursue a university degree, land a good job, and then turn around and fund a full-year scholarship for another person in their same community. Those new scholarship recipients later fund still other full-year scholarships.

Potential downside? So far, none. www.thesenumbers.org

This past summer I had the immense opportunity to work for These Numbers Have Faces as their design/marketing/street fair intern. Working for them changed my career path from just wanting to design to wanting to work for non-profits from here on out. They do amazing work and the best part is that it is sustainable. Youth learning to reduce poverty in their own communities... this is how to teach the next generation. This is how our world will change for the better.

The staff is very responsive to my questions and even so willingly send marketing, informative materials for anyone who wants to help spread the word and understand what TNHF does. My gift was matched by the company I work for dollar-to-dollar. The staff helped me make sure that it happened. Very good communication. The regular updates on the blog is AMAZING and ADMIREABLE.

These guys not only have their hearts in the right place, but their understanding of what the needs are in South Africa - and how those needs can be met by members WITHIN the community - is astounding and inspiring. I will give my support to These Numbers Have Faces for as long as they accept it.

The video and letter updates I receive directly from the founders are so encouraging. To hear the stories of those that have had the chance to not only attend college, but graduate, is a testament to the good work they're doing.

These Numbers Have Faces had such an important impact on my and my husband's life. For years, we've donated to different non-profits but TNHF was changing the world in ways we could relate to. As a soccer player, dancer and advocates of education, we are overjoyed that the things we love are making a difference in the lives of others. As military members, time is not something we can give like TNHF can, so being able to help despite where we're stationed means the world to us. We are so proud to be part of such a great organization and love telling everyone (or showing thanks to our book!) about These Numbers Have Faces. We can't wait to be able to more with you guys:)

I talk with Justin Zoradi, the founder of TNHF, very often and he lets me know what has been going on. I am planning to take a trip to South Africa with him and his team some time soon.

The foundation that I am a board member of chose to support TNHF for the incredibly tangible results they deliver. We believe that fostering higher education is one of the more sure fire ways to create long-term sustained economic development. As financial supporters, we also greatly appreciate the high-level of communication, appreciation, and interaction that TNHF's leadership has provided.

TNHF is a fantastic organization. They are using creative ways to empower South Africans. I loved that they had a world cup bracket this summer and was excited that it became one of the biggest espn brackets in the world (#20 I think). They are excited about their work and have worked hard to develop a in country staff as well.
