30 years ago, Elvira and Irving Williams formed the non -profit organization, AHEAD, Inc. after seeing so many people dying from diseases who would not have if they were living in the United States and other developing countries. Over the years, this organization grew from just helping people not die, to providing healthcare and medicines; to giving young opportunities for job training and skills and education; they have donated well over 1 million dollars of medical supplies and equipment; taught better methods of farming; building wells; building clinics and dormitories for students; the list goes on and on. One other side benefit not to be forgotten, is that they have provided opportunities for people from the US and other countries to have significant intercultural opportunities to meet and work with, learn and learn from people in Africa. We are a global community, what happens in one part of the world affects what happens in another, and Adventures in Health, Education and Agricultural Development, Inc. has more than done their part to bring the people in the world a little closer together!
