I've been a supporter of Activated Ministries over the last seven years, and have seen a tremendous amount of progress across many of their projects in East Africa and other developing countries. They are clearly doing good work, and on a dollar basis it's hard to imagine a more efficient target for my charitable giving.

I have been a long time supporter of one of Activated Ministries' projects, the orphanage and school in Gulu, Uganda. It is a tremendous labor of love and continues to impact the lives of the 250+ students that they house and teach as well as the community they serve. These children have come from traumatic backgrounds - most are children of the child soldiers who were forced to fight with the LRA guerilla group. And many are now going to university and planning to help rebuild their country. What a great project!

I donated my car last month and wanted to commend this charity for their excellent car donation service. I donated my motorcycle to another charity several years ago and had no end of trouble, from a tow agent who cancelled several times to the tax paperwork taking forever to get to me. Not so with Activated Ministries. The person on the other end of the phone was sharp and answered all my deduction questions professionally and (more importantly) accurately. They got someone out there to pickup my car within 2 days and even had all the tax paperwork and receipts to me before the end of the year so I didn't have to worry about whether or not my donation would fall in the 2012 tax year. Great job! Will be recommending you to my friends.

My name is Susan Tidewell, and I have donated to Activated Ministries regularly over the years. I receive their monthly Newsletter, and I'm always amazed with the tremendous work that Activated Ministries is accomplishing around the world. I am specifically interested in helping missions in Africa - and this charity is doing accomplishing so much in helping orphans, AIDS victims, former child soldiers, children in need of school books and uniforms. Plus they are very active in preaching the gospel - God's Word that truly changes lives!
