Why give to the Africa Village Project Association?

When you give to a grassroots organization like the Africa Village Project Association, 100 percent of your money goes directly to the people who need it – not consultants, not bankers, not politicians. Instead, your money

• buys seeds to plant trees that the villagers can sell or use for firewood
• funds wells and catchment systems to provide safe drinking water
• purchases insecticide-treated mosquito nets to prevent malaria
• contributes to improving the health and education facilities.

The Africa Village Project Association has no overhead and no salaried staff so every penny of your donation is used for the cause.

More Bang for Your Buck

Did you know that out of every $10.00 you make, only 3.4 cents goes to help countries overseas? (Canada’s total foreign aid is $0.34 of the GNP.) Perhaps you might think this is plenty, especially when you calculate Canada’s grand total.

But where does this money actually go? From the $30.00 donated world-wide to each Sub-Saharan African, here is how it is spent:

• $5.00 – foreign consultants
• $3.00 – food, emergency aid
• $4.00 – Africa’s debts
• $5.00 – debt relief operations

The remaining 40 percent, just $12.00, actually goes to help alleviate poverty on the ground.
(Jeffery Sachs, The End of Poverty)

Giving to a grassroots organization like the Africa Village Project Association gives your buck much more bang because 100 percent goes to the villagers. You know that your hard-earned cash will truly make a difference for those who desperately need help.
