Meet Dyci Manns.

This FAB young woman is helping underpriviledged kids around the world gain access to one thing most of us take for granted: an education.

A humanitarian in the truest sense of the word, Ms. Mann’s has taken it upon herself to assist children in impoverished nations after seeing the harsh conditions some of them live in first hand. She started ‘Backpacks with Basics’ to put school supplies in the hands of children who need them most. And if that worthy cause wasn’t enough, she also created Model26, an umbrella organization that runs four programs to assist in the cause.

Through these programs, Manns recruits college students to help continue her mission. Her intent is to create more humanitarians (especially African Americans) who will be led to begin their own ‘do it yourself’ foreign aid work.

She has written about her work, been honored at Beverly Bond’s Black Girls Rock, and that’s just the start of more FAB things she’ll do!
