Assisting the Children of Africa
What can I actually do to assist an African child? This is a common question that is asked me weekly in the various emails from parts of the world. I want to help out in some way but I do not actually have a lot to offer at the moment but it normally comes down to ” What can I actually do to assist an African child.”
Below are a number of ways you can offer assistance to a child, or children living in Africa. Majority of the ways are simply implemented and offer enduring consequences in the lives of the African children that live in saddening conditions many of which you can never imagine. However your assistance can well help a child in a way that it can take them out of the miserable poverty cycle, out of the slum and into a better life with a future and hope. I know a number of children that I met during my 16 years of operation that today have well paying jobs, families as well as living in a better condition than that I met them in. this is because there was some one kind hearted like you that offer help to them and gave them support to elevate them from their terrible situation in which they where to a better future.

Sponsor a child living in Africa: you can do this as an individual or as a group.
Send them some books: In USA you can acquire a flat-rate multinational envelope and send to Africa some books. The envelope is affordable at about 11.5 USD plus a few children classics are a great selection for the kids who actually have a very bad reading culture.

Send a donation: You can also send any size of donation and it will actually be very useful to these African children.
