Review for Humanity For Children, Columbia, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My late husband had a heart for Africa from the time he was area director for Europe, Africa and the Middle East for Junior Chamber International in the early 80s. Through Humanity for Children he was able to fulfill his dream of returning to Africa and working with the people there to help them help themselves. His passion inspired other people, including me, to work with Humanity for Children. It is a small organization, run completely by volunteers, but it accomplishes big things: a clinic for women and children, micro-financing projects to help Rwandans obtain self-sufficiency, solar lights to allow young students to do their homework at night in a home without electricity, to name a few. Through their connections with Humanity for Children, three young African men have come to the U.S. and completed their master's degrees at the University of Missouri, and one is working on his Ph.D. They will be able to return to Africa and assume leadership roles, working for a better life for all Rwandans and Tanzanians. I can't say enough about this wonderful organization that manages to accomplish so much without any overhead or administrative costs.
