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

Rating: 5 stars  

Connect Africa is my favorite place to donate money because the funds go directly to improving the lives of the children orphaned by the AIDS epidemic in Uganda and their grandparents who are raising them. The money goes to education sponsorships for the children and business loans to the elders. The outcome for these families is tremendous: the children are receiving an education and the elders are creating business, both of which work towards creating a community that is growing towards self-sufficiency. My mother and I are regular donors and the occasional letters we receive from the child or elder we sponsor are heartwarming. Giving to Connect Africa is a fantastic way to make a difference by helping others who are less fortunate. Connect Africa is thriving and growing in controlled and smart ways.

Lynn Auerbach's vision and hard work has changed the lives of many children who were orphaned by the AiDS epidemic in Uganda. I know when I donate to Connect Africa, that the money will be used efficiently and effectively to help these children who otherwise would have very sad lives. In addition to providing access to education for the children, community centers built by Connect Africa play an important role in bringing the community together as these families heal from the loss of the parents of so many children. I know that my donation to Connect Africa has a direct and positive effect on a child's life in Africa.
