FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I donate to BAOBAB STRONG?

With so many excellent charities from which to choose, that is a very reasonable question. As you look over our website, we hope you’ll agree with our specific approaches to helping the impoverished, and want to join in this important endeavor.

As a new organization, we are working From the Roots Up. You would be involved in the initial stages of our work, where your support is of the utmost importance.  You would have a direct connection to the projects we are undertaking.

We are made up of 100% volunteers.  And with little overhead, a bigger share of your donation goes towards poverty reduction, unlike some large organizations that can waste 40% on operational expenses. We’ll strive to put every one of your donated dollars towards poverty reduction.
