PROJECT AKILAH INC
February 28, 2011

Akilah Project is one of the most progressive non-profit organizations I have been blessed to be a part of in my college career. The drive of the Akilah organizers is much to be admired, and they consistently display true passion in all their fund-raising and awareness endeavors. Working along side this wonderful organization has given me the experience needed to one day create my own non-profit for where I am from, Nigeria. I still have a lot to learn, but I recognize that working with the Akilah women, has been the best place to start.

The Great!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I personally have admired the innovation of Project Akilah and would opt to not change anything really. I love the passion displayed by the organizers and feel it is a lovely trait that Akilah can boast about, its drive to reach goals, and its loving spirit to better the society of Rwanda.
