Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

At present we are gaining momentum in partnership with like-minded NGO Nonprofit Associations in the nearby localities to QUEEN SHEBA VILLAGE (QSV). This will aide in not only our educational advancement but theirs as well.
Presently we are fundraising to build and have completed all of the necessary funding to purchase the building material.

We are currently meeting leaders and partnering with orgs that share a likeminded vision with ours and in Senegal, USA and nearby neighboring countries in Africa.

QSV is also educating volunteers and introducing participants to our programs past and present. We will continue to do this as to seek out the right fit for us as a pioneering Nonprofit operating in Greater Senegal in the more rural areas.

We hold meetings here USA Metro Wash/DC/MD/VA and in Senegal QSV location office and thus introduce potential members to whom we are and what our causes are to date.

The main goal is to build our first Women and girls Empowerment Education Social Center. To help accomplish this we are Fundraising, Fundraising and Fundraising!

Social media and networking has played a huge role to educate others.
Over the past five years we have been sharing our mission and vision to our more than seven main major platforms including Facebook and has received positive feedback and encouragement.

We also continue our old school tradition of "word of mouth advertising". It works!

QSV has accomplished much because our friends and donors have identified with our Vision and Mission. We are here to let the world know you don't have to be a financially wealthy philanthropist to start a Nonprofit organization, but you need to have a healthy weathy philanthropic mindset.

We invite you to google QUEEN SHEBA VILLAGE.

We are concentrating on Fundraising and sharing this main project constantly and meeting those whom are interested in our Past, present and exciting future.

Our donations are coming steadfast and our pledges are very promising and we hold our donors and potential donors to that account of promise. They have agreed to network for QSV now and in the future. We are grateful to GOD and their efforts.
