For the past six years, I have been a volunteer with Aid for Africa . . . an organization I truly admire and respect. Its programs in Sub-Saharan Africa have a major impact on improving the quality of life for so many individuals, families and communities where the need is great and the outcomes are impressive. Aid for Africa is very efficient, and its work has major positive results.
Aid for Africa is a unique organization that works with its partners to meet a broad range of health, safety, nutritional, educational and environmental needs facing the individuals and communities in Sub Saharan Africa.
In my opinion, there is no other organization which so effectively supports the efforts in local communities as they develop successful solutions to address their local needs.
I have been volunteering with this organization since 2010: during the fall, by traveling throughout the New England area – at no expense to Aid for Africa – to inform those attending workplace giving charity fairs about the outstanding work Aid for Africa does in Sub Saharan Africa; and year-round, by assisting with other activities as needed.
I cannot speak highly enough about Aid for Africa and what it accomplishes in addressing the needs of individuals and communities in Sub Saharan Africa.
Review from Guidestar
Aid for Africa has positioned itself as a very dynamic leader in the management and promotion of effective processes that support dozens of other organizations that serve real needs of people on the African continent. For many years, our organization, Action Africa Inc, has depended on the guidance and support of Aid for Africa and its staff in reaching out to the public for support. Aid for Africa understands its clients; it especially understands how critical it is for all of us to succeed together in our goals and missions. It is especially in considering the total outcomes of the many initiatives of member organizations of Aid for Africa that one gets to appreciate the vast accomplishments of this organization.
I worked with Aid for Africa for almost four years and in that time I found the director to be a knowledgeable and caring person and all of the staff to be dedicated to the mission. The work of Aid for Africa covers so many important issues such as girls' education, wildlife protection, and water availability. It was a privilege to work for an organization that contributes to the great work of so many other non-profits across the United States and Africa. One of the best things about Aid for Africa is their commitment to bringing their members together to find the best ways to work on the many issues that need attention and engagement in Africa.
Africa really needs help due to the fact that Islam has ravaged the continent for over 1,300 years.
Aid for Africa saves lives because the continent has been ravaged for centuries by Europeans and Americans stripping Africa of its resources. Also, Africans need help because Islam has left most of the continent in a horrid state. Support Aid for Africa because they support me in my social media endeavors. http://www.twitter.com/ahol888
I've been working with Aid for Africa for over two years as a board member and I am very much satisfied with its professionalism, its commitment to its mission, its strong sense of responsibility toward its constituents, and its drive to move the organization forward. I am proud to be a part of this wonderful organization
Aid for Africa is particularly effective in its commitment to support education and
other key issues that make a critical difference in communities throughout Sub Saharan Africa. AFA is also useful in providing regular updates for other member organizations committed to the same goals.
Aid For Africa is one of the few organizations supporting partnerships among organizations working in Sub Saharan Africa. As such it is an extremely valuable resource among members and the communities they serve. I am particularly impressed by their commitment to education for African girls and their mission to help these young people achieve their goals and full potential.
Aid for Africa, Inc is a great source of information and connectivity with organizations working on the ground across the African continent. As western-based mediators of complex natural resources challenges, my colleagues and I are continually looking for trusted partners who can help engage locally based stakeholders, and manage disputes and dialogue processes in the areas of impact. Aid for Africa's member organizations are key to helping us identify and engage with those organizations. Thank you AfA!
I absolutely love Aid For Africa and the work that they do! I love to donate to them because I know that my donation is going to empower individuals, support education, and effectively bring resources to those that need them.
I've been working with Aid for Africa for over a year, and they have repeatedly proven their commitment to their mission, a strong sense of responsibility toward their constituents, and an intense drive to move the organization forward. Other nonprofits could learn a lot from Aid for Africa!
Having worked with Barbara Rose and Aid For Africa for years, I continue to be inspired by their dedication! Many groups have the talk, Aid For Africa has the walk.
The mission of Aid For Africa is inspiring. As the mother of a young woman I am particularly grateful for the work Aid For Africa is accomplishing with it's Girls Fund. The need is great and the results are truly global in scope. The organization is extremely well run by it's Executive Director, Barbara Alison Rose. With increasing strain on everyone's finances it's necessary to be prudent with donations. Aid For Africa is truly a sound investment.
Aid For Africa is an excellent organization doing great work. I am a current Master's student studying nutrition and global health at Tufts University and, thanks to generous support from Aid For Africa's scholarship program, I recently had the opportunity to work on a community-based nutrition project in Rwanda and a sexual and reproductive health research project in Kenya. I have truly enjoyed working with the wonderful and passionate people who comprise Aid For Africa, and am eager to support their organization going forward.
Aid for Africa is a great organization that brings awareness to over 80 member NGOs that work on education, healthcare, conservation and economic empowerment in Sub-Saharan Africa. I am proud to be apart of their work to enlighten the public on the wonder that is Africa and the wonderful people and organizations dedicated to making it better.
I am happy to offer my support to this organization which serves as an alliance of U.S. charities providing critical services to sub-Saharan Africa, ranging from education to health care to business initiatives. There is power and effectiveness in working together, and Aid for Africa harnesses this power to maximize fundraising efforts, consequently improving services and outcomes.
I strongly recommend Aid For Africa, an effective, charitable nonprofit with a broad reach through many partners in sub-Saharan Africa. What appeals to me personally is Aid for Africa's emphasis on community-based, self-help programs. Whether your interest is healthcare, food, education, special programs for women & children, environmental conservation, wildlife protection, the arts or a combination, Aid for Africa provides an efficient conduit for supporting one or more of the many (>80) beneficial efforts under its collective umbrella
Aid For Africa are an amazing group of individuals who share an amazing passion that's infectious! I highly recommend watching these amazing people at work who have never expected anything in return! They work tirelessly for the greater good!
I have been supporting Aid for Africa ever since I made my own journey to Africa. The trip inspired me to support girls' education in Africa! I know this is an important focus of Aid for Africa, which has a number of organizations provide scholarships to girls in Africa. I love that Aid for Africa supports and educates on a wide variety of issues in Africa.
I am pleased to support this organization that does such important work in Africa. The approach of helping their member organizations become more effective in dealing with the many challenges they face in Africa seems to be sound and successful. Aid for Africa provides a framework and guidance to their member organizations to increase the effectiveness of their programs.
I've been happy to support Aid for Africa and the work they and their member organizations do -- in places where the need is great and doing work that has a significant impact.
I have been aware of Aid for Africa for many years and watched it grow into a wonderful organization. It has become a great go-to organization for reliable charities working in Africa. Its focus on grassroots organizations ensures that donations are wisely used and reach people who need them.
