I've known this organization since its founding. I love this organization and what they do. It really stands out from other nonprofits as it is very focused on improving lives via education sponsorships and various local events and programs. Education is a powerful tool and CHI's motto, "Education is strength" is an indication of their goals "to empower, educate, and provide for children; without the limitation of borders."
Having been born and raised here in Sonoma County, I haven't traveled much and I feel compelled to contribute to such an enriching experience for some of our local high school students. CHI's Summer Abroad Program is a fantastic model. It's giving the opportunity to some of our young aspiring academics to gain some much needed worldly experience that will be essential in the emerging global community.
This is a great organization doing great things! I have volunteered for this organization for many years. Last year I recieved CHI's volunteer of the year award. I am so thankful for everything CHI has done to enhance my skills and everything they do for the community.
Review from Guidestar
I have been to many of CHI's events and listened to the stories told. This is an amazing grassroots nonprofit doing exceptional things in Africa and in Sonoma County.
This "non-profit" is a scam. The other "reviewer" (J. E. B.) is the one person on the board, so don't believe a thing he says. Perhaps the only children it's helping are his. Do some serious research before sending him a dime,
I would prefer to have you elaborate on why our organization is "a scam." Please elaborate on the "serious research" you are encouraging people to do. We have always been open to transparency and are willing to share all of our IRS documents and other records with any person wanting to see them. We have helped hundreds of children in East Africa. Thank you and please feel free to contact us anytime at (707) 861-1123.
Great nonprofit doing wonderful things for children locally and internationally. They have unique programs and every member of this organization including the officers and board members donate their time. I would wholeheartedly recommend this organization.
