Reviews from GreatNonprofits.org

“This is a truly incredible non-profit. The integrity and foresight they have with respect to education in Ghana (and eventually reaching out to more of West Africa) is unmatched. Having now been to Ghana and seen firsthand the work being done through The Building Fund, I'm nothing short of impressed and completely honored to be a part of it.”

“I was able to volunteer at her host school, Tuskegee International in Accra, Ghana. It was a wonderful experience for me and I know I gained as much as I gave. I was in attendance for Tuskegee’s first commencement service and took part as invited guest in the culminating activities.”

“Jessyca led a delegation of five to visit our school and they were impressed with the warm reception accorded them by the students, teachers, parents, and the community. Plans are underway for TBF and YAIS to partner to provide excellent quality education for the children in our local community.”
