It Must Work

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds in the United States to benefit non-governmental organizations in West African countries being served by the U.S. Peace Corps.
  • We support meaningful social service activities with a focus on initiatives that support children and families (especially in the areas of education, environmental preservation, health and small business development).
  • We promote awareness of challenges faced by West African families.
  • We maintain contacts with American Peace Corps volunteers who are assigned to West African Nations. Those volunteers provide current information about local needs and can offer on-site support to It Must Work projects.

It Must Work board members underwrite all fund-raising, research and fund transfer expenses for the organization. 100% of all contributions from the public have been spent directly for the charitable purposes of the organization since its founding in 2009.


Dramatic Improvements from Small Investments...


The cistern pictured above collected rainwater that was the only source of drinking water at the Enagnon Dandan Orphanage in Benin, West Africa.

It had been the source of widespread illness for both children and animals.

















In 2014, It Must Work funded a well project in cooperation with the orphanage and Electricians Without Borders. The resulting well is pictured above. Both health and the reliability of the water supply have been improved.
