StrongMinds works with women in Africa to treat depression. Depression is one of the biggest blights on human happiness and it disproportionately affects those in Africa. Over 100 million people in Africa deal with the scourge of depression day in and day out. Despite this, very little money is going towards confronting this immense issue.
StrongMinds is the only organization working at scale to confront mental illness in Africa. By training women to conduct group therapy sessions, StrongMinds has been able to provide depression treatment for over 70,000 women, a number which grows every day. Their efforts have been incredibly successful, with over 86% of their patients depression-free 6 months after StrongMinds programming.
Best of all, StrongMinds has been independently vetted for transparency and cost-efficiency, so you can be sure that your donations are going towards actually confronting the issue.
If you are reading this, we encourage you to get your toes wet with philanthropy and give any amount. Yes, any amount. Even just a dollar. (Click here to donate – starting at $1). Currently, all donations to StrongMinds are being matched by independent donors, so donate today and double your impact. iA will be donating too, to get the ball rolling.
