We are Humanitarians at heart

African Aid workers African Aid workers are true to their calling-they’re refreshing. We generally know who we are, what we stand for and what our greater calling is. Because I’m committed to African aid I understand that it’s the multicultural nature of African societies and not just their vulnerabilities that motivate many people to join charity programs. Our core mission is to enhance effectiveness of our help even when the resources at hand are limited. Our calling is to fight poverty and empower marginalized African communities. To achieve our purpose we have to work as a team.

An African with Vision, And a Website Guru

African aid has for a longtime been seen to positively impact economic growth. Before I began creating websites to complement our activities, I was aware that this impact also stirred poverty reduction and empowerment of vulnerable people in African societies who are mostly mothers and children, but to what extent I did not know. Now several years in this calling I can’t stand the argument that African aid doesn’t have any impact on growth. Yes I understand that there are prerequisite conditions like the political stability and climatic conditions that will determine the level of impact of certain forms of African aid, but I’m fully convinced that this is humanity-African aid is humanity. And so I continue creating websites believing that more people will join me in the fight to ensure that people in Africa live as comfortable as possible.

Oliver Maal

Humanitarian and Lead Writer

A prophet is never appreciated in his own country, and unfortunately neither is a good writer. Mimi is a nickname we gave to our 47-year old lead writer who is a humanitarian with a “humanitarian” personality. Yes, my colleagues and I discovered that this personality actually exists. Mimi is slow to anger and instead displays a lot of warmth towards others. He has been active in the altruistic arena from when he was in his 2’s. He also has a tendency of offering help and being sociable even in the most unexpected situations. He gives and cares consistently and says that he feels a sense of connection to all the people he has helped. In his writing he has tried explaining the underlying dynamics of humanitarian work, and it’s only from these that we have come to learn and appreciate him as a person.

Salif Masekela

Retired Public Aid Expert and Special Reports Writer

Humanitarians are generally a sociable lot always thinking about others and never about themselves. So there is no such thing as retirement, as we have come to learn from our elderly special reports writer who also happens to be a retired public aid expert. Although his age speaks of a woman who has been committed to public aid work all her life, she remains an extrovert. She is conscientious, and always appears to be in control of her emotions. Her personality traits have impacted her effectiveness, and although she may not attain a lead position in a charity organization she will forever be our reference in matters public aid.

African charities are facing an exceptional call to justify their impact and get ahead of the competition. If all African aid organizations were led by people with the personalities l interact with, they would understand that there is really no competition when it comes to aid-only impact.
