Would you recommend Links Africa?

by Jane N. from Arlington, VA (Administrator for this Organization) (2011-03-24 19:43:38.0)
I volunteer with Links Africa because I strongly believe in their great mission of supporting education for poor women and girls in Africa in order to alleviate poverty. The global economy is based on knowledge and innovation. Therefore, Links Africa’s mission of providing girls and women the opportunity to realize their full potential is crucial. Educated women play a significant role in the economic, social and political development. Educated women can stand up for their rights and demand public policies that are beneficial to the families. On the other hand, educated women can take better care of their families, provide quality education, healthcare and support system. It is for these reasons that Links Africa is my favorite international nonprofit organization. I would recommend people to volunteer and support the organization as the need is so huge in Africa. When you volunteer or donate to Links Africa, you eat help create positive social change and a lasting difference.
