Assist Africa is solely volunteer driven. There are no paid employees in the entire organization! No salary, wages, or any other compensation has been paid to any directors, board members, or any associates since our launch in 2005. Anyone who wishes to be a part of Assist Africa's Team Togo is required to pay their own travel and lodging expenses, but this hasn't stopped volunteers from joining our team to see the difference they can make to many lives. Without the overhead costs of paid employees, our nonprofit organization is able to use its donation-based funding directly for the causes and people we believe in. It's the purest form of charity - a nonprofit, not for profit organization.
