Review for Project Akilah Inc, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered with an Akilhah fundraiser in Washington, DC. Not only is the Akilah staff motivated, but genuinely inversted in their work in Rwanda. It is inspiring to watch their work being built from scratch, and the direct impact they have had on the women they teach.

We were able to hear the stories of two women who graduated from the institute, and how their lives have been positively impacted from this opportunity. The fact that the NGO operates with such a small overhead and staff, and is still able to fulfill thier vision, speaks to the character, passion, and integrity of this group of women.

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

the lives of my own friends who work for Akilah. They are inspiring and dedicated young professionals.

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

Work on marketing beyond the family/friend connections.

Role:  Volunteer & I served food and spoke to guests of my own experiences in Africa. .
