Child Voice is an exceptional organization! I have visited Uganda twice this year and each time opened my heart and my mind to the needs of others in a way that has changed my life forever. Even though I have been serving in the human services field for a long time, being at Child Voice renewed my passion and compassion for serving others. This is a 5 star organization.

My wife and I have served in ministry in mostly urban communities most recently in the Seaboard Region of New Hampshire. I had the privilege of travelling to Uganda with ChildVoice and it was hugely transformational for me personally and in my capacity as a Pastor. The organization provided in depth orientation, and information coupled with a demonstrated knowledge of the country's infrastructure and diligent care for those travelling abroad. The work they are doing in Uganda is exceptional, having witnessed the complexities of 3rd world developments and the challenges many non profits experience, ChildVoice is navigating those challenges and leading the way for sustainable program models. If you desire a life changing experience and a desire to view the world from a one of a kind vantage point, investing and partnering with ChildVoice will achieve that and more in your life.

This organization far exceeds all expectations in walking with former child soldiers, young mothers and children seeking holistic healing from trauma and social barriers. The young women receive counseling, vocational and parenting skills, and gain a better understanding and ownership of their tribal culture. The staff invest an incredible amount of time and love in all of the student's and children's well-being.

ChildVoice International is a fantastic organization that empowers young women facing devastating social challenges resulting from the civil war in Northern Uganda. CVI's goal to restore and rehabilitate shines through at every level through the Ugandan leadership presence in the organization, the commitment to helping the women thrive outside of CVI whether in the village or city context, the use of land and societal integration as the women volunteer in the local village of Lukodi, and the depth of emotional, psychological, spiritual, and physical care the women receive during their residence. It is truly inspiring.

CVI commits to caring for these women long after they leave the center. They continue to maintain relationship, offer support, and even jobs if people feel called to work at the center for future "classes" of women entering the rehabilitation center.

What is most impressive is the way that CVI comes alongside women with dignity, true resources, and the phenomenal gift of love.

Lives are genuinely transformed at ChildVoice International. The care, love, and support that the organization provides for former child soldiers and young women truly is amazing. The empowerment that it provides the women by supporting them develop their skills not only as members of society, but also as young mothers truly is inspiring. Those who are unjustly displaced from society socially and economically deserve a chance to live normal lives just like everybody else; and ChildVoice International provides them with such opportunity.

Childvoice International has made incredible efforts toward rehabilitating women and their children who have experienced various levels of hardship in their lives. I love that they address physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, while preparing these women for successful integration back into their communities. And that they have had so much success doing so! The women are strengthened in so many ways, and their growth over time is truly tremendous.

Childvoice International is an incredible organization that truly improves the lives of many young women and children not only for the time they spend in the program, but for years to come. It is a place that allows war affected women and children to experience holistic healing and restoration. My time spent at CVI was rewarding, eye-opening, and life changing. I had an amazing opportunity to see a particular class of women and children twice - first at the beginning of their time at CVI and once again an entire year later. The transformation these women had experienced was absolutely undeniable. CVI is doing great work, lovingly caring for women and children, and leaving a lasting impact in Northern Uganda.
