My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Achieve in Africa, Thousand Oaks, CA, USA
As an officer with Achieve in Africa since 2009, I appreciate that its volunteers and board members are unpaid, and that 95% of all donations go directly to our projects on the ground. AIA has worked consistently to reach its goals. Tanzania’s Olasiti Primary School has had classrooms rebuilt and repaired and desks constructed, alleviating overcrowding. Olasiti Secondary School, opened in 2012 as the first Secondary School in Olasiti Village, provides safe access to public education for 600 boys and girls in grades 7 and 8. Additionally, AIA built a learning center in rural Tanzania (Ulolela), and provides electricity to one classroom in each of Olasiti’s schools. AIA’s plan to help expand the Olasiti Secondary School to six grades in all is further evidence of the organization’s tireless commitment to its mission.
