Review for CorpsAfrica, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have closely followed CorpsAfrica in Senegal. As a former Peace Corps volunteer and staff in Senegal I have seen how the CorpsAfrica volunteers exceed the expectations that we had of our Volunteers. Its an amazing program having meaningful impact on the communities where these dedicated volunteers serve. It gives one hope for sustainable development in Africa and pride in the youth of today

Review for CorpsAfrica, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

CorpsAfrica is an amazing initiative and even more so movement in Africa. Based on the US Peace Corps model is has developed volunteer programs in Morocco, Malawi and Senegal ~ Africans helping Africans. CorpsAfrica started by a former Peace Corps Volunteer offers a similar transformative experience to emerging young leaders in Africa – giving them the chance to be a part of the solution for their own countries.

As a volunteer facilitator, I recently participated in CorpsAfrica's all~countries Conference in Morocco. It was a moving experience for me being a part of this Conference. Young Moroccan, Malawian and Senegalese volunteers came together to learn, participate, share, eat and experience Morocco together ~ developing lifelong friendships. I saw firsthand how their volunteer experience in African villages and small towns have transformed them into confident and compassionate adults that believe that they can make a difference and together can seek solutions for many of the pressing issues in their countries. Listening to their stories on the work they are doing and the impact that they have on the people they are serving, and even more the impact that their experiences have on them, was a hopeful opening into a world where many African youth are disenfranchised and hold little hope. These young adults give one hope for a bright future! CorpsAfrica is able to tap the idealism and energy of young people and give them confidence and optimism – while at the same time giving them the transformative experience similar to that of Peace Corps volunteers – helping to shape their view of the world and their own future.
My hat goes off to this movement and I hope that CorpsAfrica will be able to expand its vision into many other African countries. Its a NGO that deserves to be ranked as one of the best as its work developing its volunteer programs and alumni association is unparalleled. The impact this small NGO has had on Africa is already large and impressive!
