Review for African Christian College, Albuquerque, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 1997 I bought a few macadamia plants in the name of Nigerian Christian Bible College (where I was serving at the time) to add to the orchard at ACC. Three years later, I visited the campus for the first time and was highly impressed. After becoming a board member, I taught in Swaziland a semester in 2007. The school has upgraded considerably since I was there and is moving more toward sustainability with its bountiful macadamia harvests each year.

But the real story is the change the school makes in the lives of its students. Whole families move to the campus when accepted, and husbands and wives learn together and grow together. Ample opportunities for service are provided for students to help those in need living near the school. The faculty and staff are totally committed to giving students what they will need to be productive members of their communities after they graduate.

As one who knows ACC from the bottom up, I affirm that it is a great nonprofit, carrying out its mission with excellence!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

voice my criticism/suggestion to the Board, as I hope anyone with a problem/idea for improvement will do. The organization is not one that is closed to outside input.
