The Develop Africa Team has created this page to help you understand what we do not do. The needs in Africa (and really worldwide) are tremendous. Many deserving communities and people are desperately looking for assistance online.
Much as we would like to help everyone who legitimately approaches us, certain requests do not fall within our mandate.  Given our focus, we are unfortunately unable to reply to every message or request that we get.  If your request falls within one of the categories below, you probably will not receive a reply from the team.  We will not respond to the following requests.
  1. We do not encourage unsolicited requests for equipment, supplies, computers, miscellaneous materials, funding, etc.  We are currently not accepting applications for grants etc.
  2. We do not fund individual college or school tuition / scholarships outside of the Promise of Hope Scholarship. This scholarship currently operates in specific schools in designated countries. 
  3. We do not encourage specific requests to assist a person / organization you know or work with – such as provide a mosquito tent, a scholarship, help you ship books or computers to Africa etc. 
  4. We do not encourage unsolicited partnerships requests from organizations in Africa. 
  5. We do not encourage or participate in financial deals involving incredulous bank transfers amounts. Clear instructions are provided on this site on how to support our programs.
  6. We are not in a position to provide assistance with your research.
  7. We are currently not organizing any international volunteer trips.
