Review for INDEGO AFRICA, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an incredible organization working to help lift women and their children up by empowering them to create a better life for themselves through education, access to US markets, and self-determination. The support structure that Indego Africa has put in place on the ground in Rwandan communities is making a real and lasting impact on the women who are involved with this non-profit social enterprise. By making use of the women's skills and talents, encouraging them to do what they already do best, using the income from the sale of their goods produced to educate and train them to run their own business, and by also using their income to purchase computers and train them how to use the computers, Indego Africa is making a huge, positive difference in the lives and families of these survivors of the Rwandan genocide.

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

Always passionate, hard-working, friendly and persistent.

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

Spread it's work to other countries and communities that could greatly benefit from such an amazing social enterprise structure, to lift up more people and give them hope for the future.
