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

Rating: 5 stars  

I had known of this amazing organization for many years from Lynn coming to my church and giving her annual presentation of the children and families she supports in Uganda. These presentations inspired me and motivated me to make a difference of my own. At the time I was in Boy Scouts and was working my way to becoming an Eagle Scout but needed an idea to conduct an Eagle Scout Service Project. After Lynn's presentation that year I was talking to her about Boy Scouts and I realized that helping Connect Africa and those amazing families in Uganda would be the perfect project! Lynn was ecstatic about the idea and the next thing I know, I am presenting the proposal of gathering boarding and school supplies for the children in Uganda to the board of the Boy Scouts of America and they tell me that this was one of the best projects they had heard of in a long time! By the end of my project I had spread the word of this amazing organization across about 50 different businesses and gathered over 5,000 different items from shirts and bedding to calculators to send to Uganda for these children to go to school and get the education they deserve. I am very proud to have helped this organization and those children the way that I did and I hope that I also inspired others to realize that they can make a difference too!
