Review for Arlington Academy of Hope Inc, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a former Peace Corps Volunteer (Uganda 1969-70), I sought an organization with a mission to make a meaningful difference in sub-Sahara Africa. Arlington Academy of Hope works at the grassroots level providing education to more than 600 primary, secondary and college students, and has enabled me to give something back to the people of Uganda, who were such welcoming and gracious hosts when I was there so many years ago. We sponsor two primary school children, and it's great to receive their letters about their lives, families, community and school. It is a solid organization, founded by Ugandan-Americans celebrating its 10th anniversary. Stateside, it is almost all volunteer with a very warm, community feel to it. Can't say enough good things about it.
