FOUNDATION FOR STUDENTS RISING ABOVE
October 21, 2012

The social, professional, financial and spiritual support that SRA provides is critical to the journey of today's young leaders. The program is a coordinated effort of students, advisors, staff, mentors and volunteers and the results of 90+ % college admission proves that it takes a village. I'm honored to be part of SRA!

FOUNDATION FOR STUDENTS RISING ABOVE
September 24, 2010

There are few organizations that allow you to become so personally involved in changing lives of motivated youth. SRA has given me a wonderful gift through my mentee student, currently at UC Merced. The SRA community nurtures great character and provides the means for many under-served students to reach higher. Many, including my mentee, are citizens of the world who see the importance of "paying forward." I am confident they will make a global impact and am honored to be affiliated with such an impressive, professional and well-organized foundation.

The Great!

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

seeing the 2010 SRA class mature and successfully attend colleges throughout the nation.

ASANTE AFRICA FOUNDATION INC
February 7, 2009

Asante Africa Foundation is able to change lives by offering quality education to children in East Africa. I have seen the great work and understand how big of an impact every dollar makes. Because administration expenses are kept below 10 percent, Asante Africa is able to make a difference with every donation.

The Great!

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

the opening of schools in the rural villages of Kenya and Tanzania.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the passion of the volunteers and seeing the on-the-ground work.

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

Committed, intelligent, collaborative and deeply caring.

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

keep pace with the great need for schools and teachers in East Africa.
