We are very proud to announce that Charity Navigator, America's premier charity evaluator, has given us its highest 4-star rating for sound fiscal management - for the SEVENTH year in a row!
Charity Navigator's President acknowledged that AMREF USA belongs to a small group of highly efficient and responsible charities by stating that "only 2% of the charities we rate have received at least 7 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that AMREF USA consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way, and outperforms most other charities in America. This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates AMREF USA from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust."

We value your support of AMREF’s comprehensive range of medical and public health programs, which provide lasting health solutions for Africans by Africans. Eighty-eight cent of every dollar we spent goes directly to AMREF's life-saving programs in Africa. AMREF is today the largest health development organization based in Africa, with 97% of our staff of more than 1,000 coming from the communities in which we work.
AMREF is a beacon of hope for hundreds of thousands of people in Africa . We mend bodies and spirits, devise and implement health programs that focus on the most marginalized, often women and children, and the most critical health issues, such as offering maternal and child health services to reduce maternal and child mortality rates; training health workers to build local capacity in communities across Africa; providing access to clean water; bringing health services to remote rural areas; and distributing bed nets to prevent malaria.
