Any easy five stars. Their overhead is minuscule and their devotion is incredible. Their mission directly improves the lives of teenage girls who love school and are extremely devoted to their personal growth. This indirectly but very strongly improves the lives and conditions of their communities many times over.

Professional with expertise in this field

Growing from a small effort to send school supplies to a village school in Tanzania, Africaid has impacted thousands of girls and teachers. Through their KISA Project they have help develop a new generation of female leaders who are making substantial contributions to their families, their villages, and their country. Africaid is an organization that has a long history of tangible results, turning contributions in high impact programs. I am proud to support them.

The future is female, and AfricAid specialized in supporting the next generation of female leaders to excel. I've been particularly impressed by their agility to respond to girls' needs in real time during the covid-19 pandemic.

I have given to Africaid on more than one occasion. The mission is a good one. The staff are not only committed, they are friendly and thoughtful and keep in good communication with me as a donor. I enjoy the handwritten notes as well as the facebook posts and videos that let me see and feel more about the work being done and the positive impact on real lives .

AfricAid far exceeds expectations when it comes to delivering a measurable impact on Tanzanian girls' lives with a relatively modest non-profit budget.

From the initial vetting process for and through the first year on Board of Directors, I have been notably impressed with organizations consummate professionalism, passion and commitment, research and knowledge driven programs, accountable and measurable results and consistent efficacy track record, collaborative and flexible partnership with in-country led and managed work, and most of all profoundly convinced that AfricAid will be a growing results-driven and proven girls soft skills-based mentoring/empowerment/community leadership program and model with multiple paths for scaleable, transferable, and adaptable for implementation by other entities or as integrated content and methodology with NGO or government and agency programs in girls' gender empowerment/equality programs that promote also a secondary positive influence on community attitudes.

AfricAid creates a pathway out of poverty through education and leadership mentoring for girls in Tanzania, Africa.

I recently found out that 100% of the girls in AfricAid's "Kisa" leadership mentoring project, graduate from high school. This is significant in a country where less than 5% of girls complete high school.

The two-and-a-half year Kisa program includes weekly mentoring sessions led by strong, young, educated Tanzanian women. These mentors are unique role-models for girls who are the first in their families to attend high school.

When Kisa scholars finish high school, they participate in a six-month leadership immersion in their local communities and teach what they have learned to younger girls, becoming role-models them-selves and encouraging a new cycle of education. One Kisa scholar taught 300 younger girls, thus expanding Kisa's impact exponentially.
