The
African
Development
Initiative:
Status
Report


April
2011


The
beginning
of
spring
brings
new
things
for
ADI
 Dear
Friends
and
Supporters
of
ADI,
 
 This
 month,
 ADI
 is
 competing
 in
 the
 Global
 Giving

 Open
Challenge—a
competition
amongst
non‐profit
 organizations
 to
 raise
 $4,000
 by
 at
 least
 50
 unique
 donors.

Details
are
inside!

The
undergraduate
team
 has
 been
 hard
 at
 work
 spearheading
 our
 participation
 in
 this
 endeavor.
 
 We
 hope
 you
 will
 continue
to
support
us
as
we
work
to
raise
funds
for

 our
projects
in
Ekumdipe
and
Agyementi.


 
 Sincerely,
 Alexandra
Almore
 President‐Elect,
African
Development
Initiative
 "This
many
crops
in
the
dry‐season?
No,
this
is
something
that
has
never
been
done
before
here
in
 Ekumdipe.
But
now
with
the
project
we
know
it
can
happen."

 ‐Charles
Kwaku,
Farmer
in
Ekumdipe

The
 GlobalGiving
 Foundation
 is
 a
 registered
 501(c)3
 organization
 hoping
 to
 change
 the
 way
 people
 give
 by
 offering
 donors
 a
 transparent,
 high‐impact
 giving
 experience.
GlobalGiving
enables
donors
to
fund
the
 underdog
 without
 taking
 an
 undue
 risk.
 The
 foundation
 has
 a
 rigorous
 and
 tested
 due
 diligence
 process
 that
 simultaneously
 endorses
 organization
 while
building
support
and
funds
for
the
groups.

 The
Global
Giving
Campaign
is
a
competition
amongst
 non‐
profits
to
raise
$4,000
during
the
month
of
April
 by
at
least
50
unique
donors.

Reaching
this
goal
will
 give
The
African
Development
Initiative
a
permanent
 slot
on
their
website
which
is
a
pretty
popular
site
for
 people
 interested
 in
 donating
 to
 causes
 they
 support.

 In
 addition,
 the
 organization
 that
 raises
 most
 money
 or
 has
 the
 most
 donors
 will
 get
 an
 additional
monetary
prize
from
Global
Giving.
