I've recently read about your organization and find it laudable how you've taken first hand experience and attempted to construct an organization to aid in the problems you've witnessed at a level grander than possible at a personal level. The work of NGOs in developing countries is something that has interested me greatly, which is why I've decided to make this request:
I am a senior in college with an (hopefully!) upcoming degree in the fields of International Politics and Economics. For my thesis I have been researching the "Effects and Desirability of International NGOs on Educational Systems in Developing Countries". After spending a month in Peru working with an American NGO attempting to do just that, I've come to several initial conclusions.
Far be it from me to see this as a freak coincidence, I noticed the conquer club fundraiser for your organization, and though I haven't frequented the site in many months, it spurred me to come here and check this out.
From my experiences any NGO founder, co- or otherwise, is swamped with work at a near-constant level. However, I would very much appreciate a few minutes of your time to talk about your goals, tribulations, and experiences working for SOS Africa. If this is something at all feasible for you, please do let me know and I'd love to get some information from you. Separate from the ConquerClub forums, of course!
I'm not sure if this is the best medium to attempt to reach out to you, so I am also sending this letter to your private messages and to that e-mail address I saw on the first page of this forum. Thank you so much for your time.
