Happy National Volunteer Week To You!
It’s that time of the year that in the US we celebrate volunteerism and the national media creates a buzz to promote volunteer work for one entire week.
Being an all-volunteer organization, we understand how vital each of you is to our grassroots project. Our volunteers deserve our appreciation all year-long, so it is only appropriate that we take this opportunity to once more recognize the contribution made by all of you this past year from coast…

We are specially thankful to the many student volunteer interns who helped us design, develop, and successfully complete phase 1 of our African pilot project these past six months. Much of the success of establishing volunteer teams in all African regions is owed to our country coordinators and community organizers.
Special thanks go to our student volunteer internship coordinators Caleb Thole, Emmanuel Tanifum, Frank Kamanga, Gilbert Bita, Mokhtar Omar, and Sylvanus Murray. Thanks to your leadership, we are present today in almost every single African country.
