Operation Bootstrap Africa partners with local communities and uses local resources to help people meet their ever-growing education needs. Their mission is based on the "bootstrap" philosophy of helping people help themselves.  Operation Bootstrap Africa raises money and then grants that money to various education projects. Almost 70% of donor support is from individuals, with another 25% from faith-based communities.

JB Scherpelz reflects on the History and Meaning of MINN

I don’t know much about current efforts to combat water-borne illnesses in Southeast Asia, nor am I an expert on the most effective ways to support refugees in North Africa. I am not sure who is doing the most innovative work on solar-ovens or water filtration in South America or the most impactful undertakings to combat gender violence around the world. I don’t know by name the most connected individuals in the local Somali community. I don’t have elected officials on speed dial or a direct line to policy makers.

I don’t…but MINN does.
