BENEFITING: AFRICA HEARTWOOD PROJECT INC
At Africa Heartwood Project we have had great success in sowing seeds of positive change and of love in the lives of the poor whom we serve in Africa. In order to sow seeds, one must first obtain seeds and the means to sow them. That’s what this “Seed to the Sower” project is all about; making sure our small but dedicated administrative and volunteer team continues to have “seeds” to sow – or the financial means to administer our programs – in a sustainable, workable way for all involved.
International volunteers are required to pay their own travel and living expenses in West Africa. While volunteers are not paid for their time or skill, we like to encourage their support through reimbursing out-of-pocket expenses related to their volunteering with Africa Heartwood Project. It is also necessary from time to time to supplement the revenue generated by our social enterprises, which provide ongoing infrastructure and administrative overhead support to Africa Heartwood Project.
Donations to Seed to the Sower enable us to show appreciation to our volunteers for their hard work, and to make their volunteership less of a personal financial burden, and strengthen and supplement the social enteprise that allow AHP to operate without administrative expense.
