I sent in 4-6 boxes of school supplies, for the first time, so I was unsure of the process. The communication through email was efficient and informative. This organization really cares! I am already prepping for our next donation!
Develop Africa has given hope to children from poor families to access education.This is precious for the girl child who faced a myriad of challenges ranging from early marriages to child labour.

This is a wonderful charity!! It is a blessing to be a part of this growing mission. As I read and view all of the positive changes being made for these children... It amazes me. All of my questions were answered in a reasonable amount of time and very well explained. I love develop Africa and all the selfless work they do to create a better world. Thankyou.
I found Develop Africa through a TED talk given by See Your Impact cofounder, Scott Oki. I was impressed with the transparency of this organization and its encouragement of donors to really get involved not only on a monetary level, but a human level of connection and understanding. Sylvester Renner and Joshua Sandy have helped facilitate the support and a relationship with our adopted family in Sierra Leone. Sylvester and Joshua are a joy to work with and make giving and getting involved easy and rewarding. We look forward to a long and meaningful relationship with the Develop Africa team.

After my son was born, I knew I wanted to volunteer for an organization that helped children. I searched high and low for a nonprofit that directly and tangibly made a difference in the lives of kids in need, and Develop Africa fit that criteria perfectly. They don't spend all their money on marketing, and the link between donor and recipient is fairly direct. Even 18 months later, I am still inspired by the work they do, and proud to be part of the team.
You have to respect an organization so deeply involved in outreach and uplift. Develop Africa is a great example of investing in the youth to help create a better tomorrow. I've watched the org & their initiatives for over 10 years and I'm always moved by their desire to take action.
I have known Sylvester for about 3 years I think. He had called me with a job, to build a crate to ship supplies (in this case a lectern) to aid teaching children in Africa. Since meeting him, he and I have corresponded back and forth a few times over different subjects. I have great faith that Mr. Renner is smart and has only the best intentions and motivation for helping his chosen (less fortunate) in how ever manner he can.
