My former student is founder of "Achieve in Africa"
I am a former student of yours. I took Developmental Psychology in the Spring of 2007 as a sophomore. In my final year here at Boston University, I co-founded a non-profit organization called Achieve in Africawith another BU student, Alyssa Snow. Starting this organization has been something I have wanted to do ever since I visited Africa two summers ago (as a sophomore) and saw children thirsty for knowledge, but lacking the facilities and supplies needed for a proper education.
The mission of the organization is to give children in Africa the ability to achieve in school by providing the facilities and supplies needed for a proper education.
For pictures and information about this school and the organization, please visit www.achieveinafrica.org.
After graduation in May, I will be traveling to Tanzania in June to oversee construction.
In Swahili, "Pamoja, Tutafaulu." Together, we will achieve.
