Testimonials

“Kids in poverty-stricken countries are just as bright… just as smart as in developed parts of the world. They just haven’t had the opportunities. But when you give them the time and resources they catch up fast.”

— Annie, teacher

“I know that the donations I make to AFAC goes directly to programs serving those people who need help. AFAC has helped me turn the blessings of my life into blessings for others.”

— Carlo, attorney

“For me, my greatest challenge was staying in a rural area with so much need. The unrelenting poverty was so huge and the need was even bigger. Sometimes the magnitude of the tasks and challenges and the brokenness of the system is so overwhelming; you wonder how you’ll ever make a dent. But it’s incredible to work with people who deal with this broken system and the frustration that surrounds it and end up making a difference.”

— Ethan, software engineer

“My experience going to eSwatini (Swaziland) with AFAC was one of the biggest positive influences in my life.  I’ve lived pretty comfortably growing up in Hawaii.  During out time in eSwatini, I felt challenged, both physically and mentally, and it has contributed to who I am today.”

— Katrina, Age 22, HPU graduate

“The work was hard, but we actually laughed so much. I love the camaraderie of the team that went to Tanzania. It was a wonderful experience doing work that I felt was meaningful and helpful.”

— Paul & Shirley, retirees

“When I think of how I feel about how my donations to AFAC are spent, it brings joy to my heart.”

— Dennis, concierge

“When we think of other people’s lives as linked to our own, our empathy grows.  Going on a trip with AFAC you get to see first-hand their amazing ability to help build a brighter and better Tanzania.  AFAC pays special attention to the needs of the community and always works with the local people on sustainable solutions.”

 

— Jon, art director

“It was so inspiring to talk to Alfred, one of the AFAC sponsored kids in eSwatini.  He was eight and badly malnourished when AFAC found him.  He’s in high school now and making steps to be a nurse.  It was such a pleasure to sit down and talk with him.  It was moving to me because it was a powerful example of changing lives.”

— Christine, therapist

“I learned about AFAC from some of the high school students that took a trip there last year.  They were so moved by their experience that they came back home and raised enough funds to build a well for the high school students in eSwatini.  Now the school doesn’t have to keep closing just so the kids can walk miles to get water.  I was inspired by their experience and their enthusiasm for making a difference.”

— Alex, writer
