I am forever indebted to Engage Now Africa for their significant role played in my life especially at a point in life where all hopes were lost. Right after Senior High School, I stayed home for three (3) good years though I tried all my best to be in the University. During those three years of my stay at home, I had admissions from different Universities but it was unfortunate that I could not honour any of them due to financial insecurity. All of a sudden, upon getting introduced to Engage Now Africa through some friends, the magic happened. Something for which I have been yearning for years got resolved in just a couple of days; my admission was fully paid and all I needed to do was to be on campus for lectures. One can already imagine how happy I was.
Their assistance could not end there. Each year I receive yet additional support from them till I completed my 4-years stay in the University where I got my degree.
It is part of my dreams and aspirations that later in life, my contribution to this organisation will never lack; I must give back to this society and possibly to the larger society. This good work has to continue and may the brains and financial hands behind this great initiative never lack. It is a life transforming program and I sustain it.
Kindly find attached, my graduation photographs together with the education director of ENA.

Thanks.
Unfortunately, the photographs are larger than 3mb and could not be added except one with my wife and child.

Engage Now Africa have lifted thousands of people in my community from poverty.

In 2007 when I was referred to Engage Now Africa, I was a young adult with blighted expectations about my future. Education was not an option because I had no means to afford it. I was referred to Engage Now Africa and they picked me up and guided me to climb the rungs of the ladder to a safer life and better future. In deed, they calmed my fears and mentored me through various stages of my personal development.

Engage Now Africa have made a tremendous impact in my life. They provided the opportunities that challenged me to pursue education. With their help, I discovered academic abilities that I never knew I had. I excelled in my high school exams and had an admission to study Information Technology at the University of Greenwich. Engage Now Africa supported me by paying my fees and I graduated with first class honors. This provided me the opportunity to work in key positions for two publicly traded organizations. I became self reliant and decided to start a family. I got married and was able to independently support my wife to achieve her Masters degree in Public Health. I became attracted to the Public Health field and decided to pursue a Master of Public Health degree myself. I again graduated in 2019 as one of the top students in my class. As I look back, I realize that none of these would have been possible if Engage Now Africa did not see the vision to help me discover myself.

I have witnessed firsthand how their education project enrolled thousands of people to all levels of schooling. I have seen their micro credit and starting/growing a business project improve family income and impact thousands of people; especially women in hard-to-reach communities.

Engage Now Africa is an NGO extraordinaire. I invite you to support them to reach more people.

I have traveled with Engage Now Africa to Ethiopia for service projects numerous times. Several of these trips included my teenage daughters. The service projects did exactly what they were advertised to be: we built schools and desks, interacted with the students and members of the community. We got to learn about the microcredit projects with the women in the communities, saw wells and water pumps being built and operating, and learnt about other efforts of ENA within the communities it serves. ENA strives to be fully transparent wih its donors and it strives to work with the communities it serves, consulting with community leaders and members about needs. Technologies used are ones that can be maintained locally to ensure that equipment can be repaired if needed. I have very much enjoyed working with ENA and plan to do so again in the future.

For a long time I have been wanting to express my feelings about ENA. I have come across dozens of nonprofit organizations in my life, but very few, if any, come even close to the professionalism and integrity of ENA. The amount of people helped is close to a miracle, let alone the depth of change generated among these helped. I have been on the sidelines of their help and observed closely at their work and service and the only way to describe it is a fantastic and heartwarming organization. Well done ENA...keep up the great work you are doing!

I have been familiar with Engage Now Africa’s work for a few years now. They do a fantastic job at creating the most impact with the resources they have. Individuals and communities in some of the word’s more vulnerable areas are empowered through the NGO’s efforts. Lives are improved and long-term change brings hope to those they serve.

I have been on site and witnessed first-hand the work of ENA in Ethiopia and Ghana. ENA is one of the premier charities serving those in need in poverty stricken regions of Africa. Their programs focus on building healthy self-relianant strong families--which is key to sustainable impact. From their board members to their in-country staff--everyone at ENA serves with compassion for and a deep commitment to the personal growth and development of the people of Africa.

Engage Now Africa's mission is to heal, rescue and lift individuals and families in Africa. They stay true to their commitment 100% and change the lives of so many people who need help. I've had the pleasure of hearing so many amazing stories from their US Executive Director, Jennifer Ellsworth, on the priceless work they do to help others. This is definitely a non-profit that deserves recognition and should be an inspiration to all to serve those who need us.

I am the monitoring and education officer for engage now Africa Ghana. This great and heart touching organization deserves the ultimate recommendation for its superb humanitarian activities. Among the many wonderful and caring deeds chalked by this awesome organization, is the recent rescue operation of twenty eight (28) unfortunate trafficked children among many others, trapped under slavery on the Yeji lake - a community in the eastern part of Ghana. The story did not end with just the rescue operation, but continued with the immediate rehabilitation and reintegration of all the children back into their various communities in about eleven districts. Engage now Africa also ensured the enrollment of all the rescued children into the main stream educational program with full educational support. In addition engage is also financially supporting the various care givers of this children in various forms of businesses just to ensure these children enjoy a wonderful childhood and privileges as deserved of any other child. Amazingly , monitoring of the welfare of all children under this awesome initiative by engage now Africa continues until the dreams of these children are realised. Thanks to engage now Africa. They deserve the best.

This is a great family organization that provides valuable employment for people to invest in their local community through building schools, wells, and medical facilities in villages under served by the broader regional government. The minimal staff here in the US keeps overhead rates low and ensures that the most help possible is getting to areas in need. The kids in the villages are truly happy to have a school so close to go to.

I have been blessed to first hand see the work Engage Now Africa does with so many in need in Ghana. They provide academic education, medical resources, environmental education, and emergency care for so many in need. They lift up communities, families, and children ~ not only through "providing a fish when hungry" but through teaching to fish through life skills. We continue to be wowed by their efforts and those they serve.

I had the wonderful experience of being an intern with Engage Now Africa (ENA) in charge of social media when I was a graduate student at Brigham Young University (BYU). To begin with, ENA are doing amazing things in various countries in Africa, including helping people obtain an education, providing sources for clean water, and preventing and stopping the terrible and inhumane practices of child slavery and sex trafficking. Secondly, everyone at ENA ardently cares about the work that they're doing and it was great to work with people who are as passionate about solving the social issues in Africa as I am. Finally, I was able to further develop my skills and experience in social media through interning with ENA and so they're not a non-profit that does wonderful work in Africa, but they also develop wonderful leaders here in the United States who want to continue the work of solving social issues both in America and throughout the world.

I occasionally work with a few individuals and know that they work tirelessly and sometimes end up in dangerous positions/situations on behalf of who they care for and the cause they so peacefully proclaim and serve with determination. They care and have such a powerful presence of how they represent themselves no matter what dangerous places or meetings they expect or unexpected travel. They stay strong and will be praying for their safety and favor wherever they end up!
