Review for Project Akilah Inc, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a donor from the beginning. It has been so exciting to see Akilah's growth from the beginning to where it is now. Akilah is a perfect example of what happens when people really listen to what is needed to help a community grow and improve. Instead of deciding what Rwanda needed, Akilah has listened, learned & asked questions. Through this process, Akilah realized that women's education & Rwanda's growing tourism industry would be a perfect match. Akilah is providing women with leadership & vocational skills that will enable them to enter the tourism industry & help it to grow. This is an exciting organization, with dedicated leadership, teachers & students.
The stories of the women affected by Akilah are inspiring. The government in Rwanda feels the same way as they have donated a former school & the surrounding property to Akilah to use as a school.
I am excited to see the goals that Akilah will achieve in the future.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've meet w/ some of the leadership. Their love for the students, Rwanda & their goals is infectious! I've also seen 1st hand how effective Akilah is in fundraising & how wisely the funds are spent.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would give them more money & resources to more quickly achieve their goals of renovating the school & thereby reaching more women.
