Your Mark on the World Changemakers of the Month for May 2018: NanaEfua Baidoo Afoh-Manin and Briana DeCuir

Congratulations to NanaEfua Baidoo Afoh-Manin and Briana DeCuir for being selected by Your Mark on the World readers as the Changemakers of the Month for May 2018. Both medical doctors, they are co-founders of the Shared Harvest Fund, which has developed a new model for helping graduates pay off their student loans.

We first told their story on Forbes. NanaEfua and Briana were joined in the founding group by a third African American medical doctor, Joanne Moreau.


The Shared Harvest Fund works like this: “debtfreelancers” who are people with student loans willing to volunteer for nonprofits find those opportunities on the Shared Harvest Fund Social Impact Job Board. Both the nonprofit and the debtfreelancers pay modest subscription fees to the Shared Harvest Fund. Additionally, sponsors and donors contribute to the fund. The funds pay down the student loans of the debtfreelancers.

The Shared Harvest Fund is raising money on Indiegogo to expand the number of people they can help from the first day. The Fund will be launched on June 19, 2018, Juneteenth, marking the celebration of the end of slavery in America.
