I have been a volunteer at Develop Africa for about a year and its been an amazing experience seeing what they do and how they affect lives. From sending school supplies to disadvantaged children in Africa to helping African orphans from the Ebola epidemic at the Dream Home, Develop Africa extends genuine love from abroad. The manner in which things are conducted and the level of professionalism makes it difficult not to buy into the vision. I love my experience here and i am privileged to have this opportunity to contribute to Africa's development. Keep moving forward!!
I have worked with develop Africa on 2 projects, one I am currently starting. My first project I did with them was fantastic. I collected backpacks filled with school supplies to donate to an ebola orphanage in Africa. My project I am working on now is a teen pregnancy website. Develop Africa has been very supportive and helpful throughout my projects, and is a very great nonprofit organization.
I connected with Develop Africa's Dream Home while living and working as a nurse in Sierra Leone, West Africa in 2015 and it has been a joy to volunteer and support their work ever since. While they are a relatively small organization, the work they are doing is extremely meaningful and they are most definitely having an extraordinarily positive impact on the lives of the children they serve as well as the local communities with which they partner.
Develop Africa Inc. is an organization that has the interest of the African community at heart. They always yearn to improve African societies by providing sustainable aids to less privileged communities in those region and are always open to doing more.
It is amazing to see the passion in each of this organizations members! I pray that they will always have the spirit and resources to continually impact the world! I will definitely support them on this journey in any way I can!
I went to Develop Africa to volunteer for a class project and the people there were so warm and nice that I volunteered for more hours than I originally intended. They do great work there.
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.
Develop Africa is a great nonprofit that helps people on the individual level with a broad range of programs like computer training, scholarships for kids who need help paying their fees and microfinance programs that enable people to start business making them self-sustaining individuals and leaders of their community. More recently DA has been really involved in combatting Ebola through awareness and educational campaigns, sending protective gear for health care workers on the ground, and a recent online Q&A with Reddit. The work they are doing is especially during this time. Volunteering as the twitter manager for Sylvester's organization has been a great experience so far.
Develop Africa indeed is developing Africa.I have been following up with all the works they have been doing on social media and it is changing my life.Inspiring me in wanting to give back to society when i have the available resources.Develop Africa is changing lives of children from ranges of schorlaships to providing food,soap and materials to help combat ebola in west africa.These are the types of organizations we need more in the world to make it a better place for living. DA has been spectular in the job the are doing and may God help them continue to grow and do more so that at the end of the day these inspired lives can touch other lives.
What an unforgettable experience working for Develop Africa. I had the chance to vividly understand the workings of a charity organization and how socio-economic problems are tackled overseas. Africa is dear to my heart and anything that has to do with the development of the continent captures my attention. Mr. Sylvester, who oversees the day to day running of the agency, is an affable man with a great personality. He is passionate about the development of Africa so much that he goes the extra mile to get things done. I could not have been anywhere better than volunteering for this reputable organization. After my first semester exams, i am returning to the agency to render service to humanity .
i'm glad I had the chance to work with Sylvester on helping to design the website. I've always wanted to get involved with an educational initiative that makes a difference especially in developing countries like Africa. The same way we can improve our educational system here in the US then we can help others improve as well. I hope to continue to work with company. Keep up the good work Sylvester!
