Review for Asante Africa Foundation Inc, Livermore, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our junior high school son took an interest in Africa after a speaker came to his school to discuss the plight of children in Uganda This was the first time he truly understood that not every child has the chance to go school to learn and play in a safe environment. For the first time, he decided to take action and do what he could to make a difference for other children. Erna Grasz and I worked together early in our career and knew about her work in Africa. We invited her to dinner and her passion and enthusiasm rubbed off on the entire family. Our son and his friends raised over $2000in a few short weeks just by word of mouth throughout his school! We have supported Asante Africa for 10+ years and have seen first hand what can be accomplished through education in a safe and secure. The hallmark of Asante Africa programs is "Pay it Forward." This approach has provided boys and girls with the leadership and entrepreneurial skills needed to help their communities thrive; and the ability to mentor the younger children in the their villages. As a result of hard work, passion, and commitment Asante Africa has impacted over 300,000 lives in just 10 years. Asante Africa students have mastered technology, become college students and business owners, but more importantly, they have become respected leaders and teachers in their community so that others can also excel.
