I have been donating to IAHV for several years. I have met several volunteers and have been really touched by the dedication and commitment. It is one of the few organizations which offer holistic solutions to issues we are facing today. And also most of the contrubution goes to the project and only few %goes to administration.

I'm frequent donor for their children education program. I've visited the schools and seen the progress in under privileged children, whose no prior generations had any education. The schools are very clean, food is very healthy, and really makes smart and brilliant students. One most wonderful aspect about this organization is they are completely run by volunteers and therefore their administrative costs are low turning most of your donations into direct benefit to the society.
