Israeli Tech Makes a Difference in Africa

Innovation: Africa is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that brings Israeli innovation to African villages.

Founded in 2008, in six years Innovation Africa has provided light, clean water, food and proper medical care to more than 675,000 people in Ethiopia, Tanzania, Malawi, Uganda, South Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Innovation: Africa celebrates Israel’s technological innovations in the most productive way possible: by bringing them to the rural, African villages that need them most.

Help current Colgate University students fundraise for an impactful cause that has already used its revenue to bring light, clean water, drip irrigation and refrigeration for lifesaving medicines to over 675,000 Africans.

The Israeli Culture Club at Colgate University is pledging to raise $13,000 for Innovation: Africa by the end of the 2014-2015 academic year.

Just think: $20 brings a child light for life, $150 brings an orphan clean water for life.  If everyone reading this donated $10, our fundraising would be done in an hour.  What will your impact be?
