Words From Our People
“I originally decided to take a gap year in hopes of gaining a better sense of what I wanted to pursue in my future. Now, nearly halfway through this year, I realize I am gaining so much more than that simple clarity. As time passes, its clear to me that the work my colleagues and I are doing is having a major impact on the development of these children. With the presence of volunteers, they are gaining knowledge and exposure that they wouldn’t normally receive in their current situations and environment. Although I know these children are gaining vast amounts due to our work, I am gaining more.
Throughout my life thus far, specifically during high school, I struggled with my identity. Who am I? These children have made me realize who I am and who I am striving to become. ”Katy, Past VolunteerUSA
“I learned from African Impact's business classes to think about things that are everyday items and that won’t go bad quickly because even with selling small things every day, you make a better profit than selling big things once every two days – like clothes, or shoes. Other people didn’t think about those things until we went to class either, but I’ve always wanted my own business so I just tried! In the beginning, so many people told me I couldn’t do anything with the small money I had but now my business is doing well.”Mary, Community Member in TanzaniaTanzania
“At African Impact we talk about the impact we make on the communities and environments we work in, the people we interact with and the volunteers that come through our doors. We don’t often talk about the impact on staff and for me this has been huge. I’ve never worked in an environment where I’m so happy, inspired, challenged and motivated to achieve on a daily basis. The opportunity to work in the communities I have is a privilege and one I’ll never forget.”Dan, Cape Town TeamUK
