The 2012 Top-Rated Nonprofit List was based on the large number of positive reviews that Books For Africa received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People such as Agnes Igoye posted their personal experiences with BFA. Agnes, a container captain sending books to Uganda, wrote, “What struck me most [about BFA] was the passion and dedicated efforts of the staff and board members towards their work-Ending the Book Famine in Africa!” BFA was one of a number of nonprofits honored throughout the country.
Being named to the 2012 Top-Rated List comes at an important time of the year, as donors look for causes to support during the holiday season.
"We are gratified by Books For Africa for its work,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, "They deserve to be discovered by more donors and volunteers who are looking for a great nonprofit to support."
Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that the group honored is a credible organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit. This award is a form of recognition by the community.
