Q1. Which organisations you've been collaborating with?

and have had some contact with http://www.cam.ac.uk/global-cambridge/regional-focus/africa

Some regularly send money back to their families. Small remittances like this are significant contribution to developing countries, outstripping development aid, and go directly to people in need.
