AfrikRising, a nonprofit organization that provides the platform to accomplish great things and to serve the starving African children, has been nominated Top 50 Fastest Growing Companies in 2019 by The Silicon Review.
AfrikRising is very excited to receive this recognition as they strive to ensure they provide assistance of basic necessities, services, and education to improve the quality of life to people in Africa. AfrikRising’s focus is on the hunger in Africa and the starving African children. Its volunteers are committed and work hard to ensure that their work reaches the needy.
AfrikRising Founder and CEO Christine Reidhead started the nonprofit organization because she saw a great need on the African continent and their immense poverty. Every child deserves a healthy start in life. However, there are far too many starving kids in Africa for whom hunger is a constant, chronic pain. Starving kids in Africa are extremely vulnerable to disease. When malnutrition weakens a child, common illnesses become life-threatening.
Hunger in Africa is a huge problem caused by many factors, often being intertwined with one another. In general, the principal causes of hunger include poverty, conflict, climate and weather, lack of investment in agriculture, and unstable markets. AfrikRising is an incredible nonprofit organization that is addressing hunger in Africa and working towards ending them.
AfrikRising aims to expand by offering services to more orphanages, schools, and families in different parts of Africa. The firm wants to make the world a better place, improving children’s lives, and providing them with an opportunity of a better future.
