What are some good charities to give to help people in Africa?
I'm only 16 so I can't give huge amounts but I want to give to people who need the money I earn more than I do, help would be greatly appreciated!

CARE International is my very favorite. They are focused on empowering women and girls, because studies have shown again and again that, not only do poverty, crime, war and natural disasters affect women and girls disproportionately to men and boys, including in Africa, helping women and girls access education, health care and income-generation activities ends up helping ENTIRE families and communities. Think of it this way: give a man a fish, you feed him or a day; teach a man to fish, you feed him for life; teach a woman to fish, you feed her entire family for life.

I find World Vision to be my favorite. They have a lot you can give, so I strongly recommend this organization.
