AID FOR AFRICA, INC
November 13, 2012

I have had the privilege of donating to this organization for several years. I am a careful giver, thus I probed the organization thoroughly -- it may think too thoroughly! -- and became a great admirer. I think it is a model internationally-oriented NGO. Its members are very effective at the grassroots level in Africa, down where every dollar does real good. If you are thinking of donating to AfA, and I encourage you to do so, you will be able to see from its website that AfA sets unrivaled record-keeping, auditing, and transparency requirements. One of the extraordinary achievements of Aid for Africa is how it has been able to innovate by facilitating member-to-member contact so that they can work with each other to achieve more than a single organization could on its own. These cooperative learning experiences, or "synergies," provide a forum for what works best to lift Africans out of widespread poverty, disease and malnutrition. For example, members have worked together to exploit the fact that African girls, given member assistance to go to school, remain community-oriented, and bring back home benefits in the form of family financial assistance, role modeling, and community betterment.
