LifeNets reaches out to those many who are too frequently forgotten by the big money programs. We support them because they are an all volunteer group with dedication, determination and true concern. If you don't believe me read about their wheelchair program or the street orphan program in Vinogradov, Ukraine.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
donating a wheelchair to a man whose chair was stolen. I've seen where they have collected spare change to support 13 Ukrainian street orphans.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
continue to try and find the resources needed to both continue operations and grow them. Perhaps through grants and other awards.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
their desire to do the greatest good with the resources and manpower available.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
dedicated and sincere.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
allocate additional funds for scholarships in Africa, Ukraine and South America; and, build and operate a secondary school in Malawi where children normally pay tuition. Plus much more with their thriftiness.
Ways to make it better...
I could have donated more to their cause.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
realizing their growth potential since it is an all volunteer group.
One thing I'd also say is that...
I hope their story gets out to more and more people.
