Review for Connect Africa Foundation Inc, Newton Centre, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I have been donors to Connect Africa since our friend Lynn started the foundation. We knew that many Ugandans have lost loved ones due to AIDS and we were so happy to loved know that our small donations made such a difference in the lives of children and families in Kyaliwaijala Uganda.

We were lucky enough to see the importance of the work Lynn and Charles do when we visited Connect Africa 2 years ago. With Charles as our guide, we visited schools and met some of the children who are part of connect Africa. We met the jajas and people who have received micro loans. We sampled some of their products (the spirits) and yes, we met Galabuzi Edward with his boda boda. The next time we come we will take a nice ride with Edward.

Meeting the wonderful people made us understand why this is "Connect" Africa. We feel forever connected to the village and her people. Thank you Lynn, Charles and all the donors for all you do.
