New Year, New AiD

Small amounts of money from many people lead to high impact.

What

Africans in the Diaspora (AiD) introduces its “New Year, New AiD” holiday fundraising campaign to raise resources for three inspiring African social change organizations. These organizations are building future entrepreneurs and job creators in Senegal; healthy and engaged citizens in Nigeria; and financially-empowered women’s networks in rural Kenya. They need your help to meet these goals. Each organization is asking for $10,000. Will you help them reach it?
