Review for Africa Development Promise, Denver, CO, USA
I count myself as very fortunate to have participated with the Africa Exchange Tour to Rwanda and Uganda in March, 2017. I was able to see first hand what ADP has accomplished since 2011 working with women in poverty residing in Rwanda and Uganda to improve their standard of living. The support, training and guidance provided by ADP was clearly apparent as we visited the cooperatives and listened to women talk about what a blessing ADP has been in their lives because they realize THEIR potential. Because of their increased economic status they are able to pay school tuition, buy school uniforms for their children, to get personal items that heretofore had been thought of as frivolous and in general add to the family income and by extension the local community. The best feature of ADP, however, is the training participants receive in personal finance management along with empowering members by promoting self-help and self responsibility.
In a conversation with Monica LaBiche Brown, Founder and Director of ADP, I asked her how and why ADP came about. She responded that this work had always been her dream, it is her passion. The evidence of her dream and passion is admirable!
