CorpsAfrica is the right way to do development: empowering local communities to solve their own problems. The volunteers lead change by engaging people in conversations and facilitating community meetings to identify and address changing and complex local needs in education, health, small business development, urban planning, and infrastructure

CorpsAfrica is a sustainable and innovative enterprise, leading change by working on numerous scales, from communities to international relationships. Rather than intervening and solving problems for struggling nations, CorpsAfrica provides the necessary resources and supervises rather than intervenes. CorpsAfrica is truthfully unique in its purpose and mission, separating it from any other non-profit doing work in Africa. Overall, CorpsAfrica is championing an important mission, empowering individuals throughout Africa and assisting them to lead their communities out of poverty and into success.

CorpsAfrica is on the path to becoming the leader in sustainable development across Africa. WIth the emergence of leadership development as a key component within the infrastructure of development, CorpsAfrica's human-centered design approach provides the training that emerging leaders need to create long-lasting and impactful change in their communities. This is a non-profit that, while having three programs already, is just getting started. I am excited to see what CorpsAfrica has to bring the the development sector in years to come!

On paper, this is a great organization that aims to do great good in the countries where it is working. However, as far as implementation is concerned, a lot could be improved. Micromanagement by the HQ is one aspect that hampers progress in country offices.

CorpsAfrica is an innovative and sustainable non-profit that is tackling multiple social issues by promoting intercultural exchange, participatory community development, and grassroots volunteerism. As a Peace Corps Volunteer I have benefitted from CorpsAfrica Volunteers' know-how and presence in my region of service. I have seen firsthand how CorpsAfrica volunteers embody the talented, passionate, and savvy leaders who are eager to make positive impacts in their communities, countries, regions, and the world. With CorpsAfrica's locally-based, globally-minded volunteer approach, international development does not have to be a field plagued by paternalism and dependency. Instead, it becomes an embodiment of understanding and cooperation that starts with open-minded individuals and the communities they learn from and contribute to.
