Review for Aumazo, Inc., Silver Spring, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Aumazo has done a great job generating multiple streams of financial resources for the project. By following a strong and efficient business model, the organization is also ensuring its long-term sustainability. This aspect differentiates Aumazo from many projects in which the initial investment is rarely followed by a sustainable plan for the growth of the organization. Once built, the school will be able to genrateits own income by developing economically feasible business ventures. These will provide hands-on practical opportunities for the students.

Review for Aumazo, Inc., Silver Spring, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Aumazo is a stellar organization with a most worthy goal. It is important to note that Aumazo is dealing quite effectively with the perennial issue of operational funding by creating a for-profit business that will fund the school on a very long-term basis. This smart solution to a common funding issue is what separates Aumazo from most other projects!

Rating: 5 stars  

Aumazo is taking some important steps to make the school a reality and to provide long-term financial support for the project in Cameroon. Indeed, the school is being built brick by brick and although the process has been slow and frustrating at times, there is no doubt that the finished product will be for itself and be a critical player in the local landscape for generations to come.
