I have known of PPAF and its work since 2003. In 2003-2004, I interned with PPAF to support the organization in its early growth, and witnessed some of the tremendous work that it has done in Madagascar. More recently I have been a donor and occasional volunteer for PPAF. PPAF has identified an integral, under-resourced link in what one could describe as the value chain for poverty reduction. By serving as a passionate advocate for high-impact, win-win opportunities, PPAF is able to overcome the inertia that often prevents such opportunities from being realized. In addition, by virtue of the impressive rolodex that the organization has assembled, it is able to rapidly identify promising opportunities and get all necessary stakeholders to the table in a way that few others can.

PPAF is a not for profit with passiona nd power to make a difference. I have had the opportunity of working with PPAF on their amazing cooking stoves project . This project has been contributing to empowering the lives of many women and restoring their dignity. I think this is a great example of a grassroots project which has garnered tremendous support from all the stakeholders in taking it to the next step. Any donation made is for a truly worthy cause

The PPAF is an organisation that not only wants to do go for people, but wants to involve the people that they benefit, so that they in turn are involved to help others with the same need. The focus of their project is not to hand out a benefit, but to address a need that also solves other social and environmental problems.

I have known Public-Private Alliance Foundation, PPAF, for several years, it is very well run by highly qualified individuals that have a long experience working at the UN in various development projects. They have excellent networking capacity with government agencies in several countries as well as connection to private enterprises, a great match-maker between the two, bringing real solution to solve a chronic problems that inflict the developing countries. They have excellent administration, very nice people to work with. Dr. David Stillman, the Executive Director, was our honoree at our Earth Day celebration a few years ago. I highly recommend the support to PPAF.

The Public-Private Alliance Foundation derives from the passion of the former General Manager of the UN Public-Private Alliance for Rural Development, who tirelessly tries to improve the life of underserved population in developing countries.

What I like about the PPAF is its sensibility to the environment that ensures a long lasting sustainable development, an example is the ethanol cook stove project – on one hand it helps save the tree, on the other the clean burning stove improves the health of the poor people.

For that reason I invited Dr. Stillman, founder and director, to exhibit and explain the ethanol cooking stove at our recent Earth Day celebration.

PPAF deserves our support.
