I sent in 4-6 boxes of school supplies, for the first time, so I was unsure of the process. The communication through email was efficient and informative. This organization really cares! I am already prepping for our next donation!

My elementary school supports two students in Sierra Leone and it has been a great experience so far working with the sponsorship team and receiving letters from our students. Great organization!

I found Develop Africa through a TED talk given by See Your Impact cofounder, Scott Oki. I was impressed with the transparency of this organization and its encouragement of donors to really get involved not only on a monetary level, but a human level of connection and understanding. Sylvester Renner and Joshua Sandy have helped facilitate the support and a relationship with our adopted family in Sierra Leone. Sylvester and Joshua are a joy to work with and make giving and getting involved easy and rewarding. We look forward to a long and meaningful relationship with the Develop Africa team.

Having partnered with Develop Africa Inc to send much needed PPE for the Ebola Outbreak
in Sierra Leone, I can say that Develop Africa is one of a rare breed of competent Charity Organizations that can deliver on its promise to expedite medical suppliers to Sierra Leone within 3 days. We were proud of our accomplishments together.
If you’re thinking of partnering with Develop Africa, you are making a wise decision and would find yourself working with a competent and trustworthy Organization.

As the Ebola epidemic savaged Sierra Leone, I was asked by a group of donors to identify a NGO that would be able to identify needs on the ground. Develop Africa worked with the Ministry of Health in Sierra Leone, purchased needed materials and worked on getting it to them all within a relatively short time. They were really great and dedicated to the task of providing assistance during the epidemic. Develop Africa is an outstanding organization.

Develop Africa continues to do an excellent job in helping the less fortunate in Africa. The vision to assist and improve the lives of those in need has always been a passion of one of the founders who is a close friend. Develop Africa is managed by individuals with high integrity and I am confident that funds are used wisely.
