Review for Go! Malawi, Hebron, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I founded this organization 7 years ago and this cause has become my passion, my drive, my life! We work incredibly hard collaboratively with the Malawians to come up with African solutions for the root causes of poverty. We want our work to be sustainable, and Malawian run and we are adapting constantly to the changes and needs to help solve problems in rural Malawi. We are working on prevention and reducing the factors that lead to extreme poverty. This focus has led us to develop programs in education (from early childhood to secondary school and college), health care (from transportation to the hospital to outreach and awareness about common illnesses), micro-finance (loans for cooperatives and women to allow families to have economic independence and earn an income), forest conservation (protection of one of the last remaining rainforests in sub-sahara Africa, and HIV/AIDS awareness. We all very much want to make a difference!

Role:  Board Member & I founded the organization in 2004 and developed a non profit in 2006.
