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.

warm regards, Jeff Keller

New Life Project Inc. is very grateful for all the moral and financial support that we have received over the years from Develop Africa Inc. as we thrive to achieve our mission in Azope, Cote D'Ivoire. The financial support has transformed lives of young women giving them an opportunity to further their education or start a small business which helps them regain their self- esteem and find economic independence. It is their generosity and belief in our mission that enables us to perform our work.

DA has been working with CAPEC for some years now. It has empowered not only the children but the organization as well. I like DA for its constant support to our organization and also the link they create with different partners and individuals wishing to support our activities. I like DA for its openness, transparency, accountability and above all, its generosity. I also like DA because they are faithful to their partners and they make such they support them each year, no matter how little they can get. They are fast in responding to mails, which makes administrative work faster.

Develop Africa has a strong and clear commitment to helping to making a visible change in Africa. I admire the transparent manner in which Develop Africa operates and handles funds. Develop Africa does not only provide funds and stays behind, they (or their volunteers) go right to the filed to see and evaluate the impact of the work the are doing.
