I have had the pleasure of working with Friends of Africa International on a volunteer basis. What an incredible group of people who are passionate about the work they do. I have worked with other non-profits in the past but none of this caliber. The dedication and lives that are changed by this group is second to none. Friends of Africa is an organization that I would recommend as a trusted and dedicated non-profit that is making the lives of so many people in Africa better.

I am a graphic designer. I joined this board and offered my skills and services hoping make a difference in the world, to educate and the save lives of children and those who have so very little. What caught my attention was the commitment and dedication of the core members of the board. Their knowledge and vision is remarkable and it is amazing how they manage to do so much with so little. The love, compassion and support they give to the Pokot people of Kenya is limitless.
