I volunteer with More Than Me and have really enjoyed my experience. The organization has a very flat structure which makes it easy to make a difference or have your voice heard.

More Than Me has become the life-changing solution for so many young girls forced to turn to child prostitution in West Africa. I volunteer because I want to be a part of something bigger than myself that is rooted in action and not just conversation. More Than Me has delivered on so many fronts. With a magnetic founder, the vision for the organization is larger than life but grounded in the realities of getting girls off the streets and into school. More Than Me is on its way to igniting a positive scalable social impact in our society and is a smart financial decision for the future of girls.

I volunteer for More than Me and know from first-hand experience that any amount of money that is donated goes to a good cause, helping girls in Liberia get the education they want and deserve and keeping them off the streets. I've watched the organization grow and blossom, and my reward is seeing the beautiful smiling faces of kids we're helping. Founder Katie Meyler's passion for helping these kids is genuine and boundless. Volunteering with More than Me is proof that we all have the power to make a life-changing difference in this world--for the girls in need and for ourselves.

More Than Me is unique in that the effort is spearheaded by an amazing founder who has a hand in everything the organization does. Her passion is felt not only by the girls in Liberia, but by the local government as well as donors and supporters here in the United States. Moreover, More Than Me isn't just raising money for another organization, it is raising money to use itself in programming that is designed to fill a very specific need: the education of girls who, without this emotional and financial support, would be on the streets.

More than Me is an incredible organization where your donation of money, time or goods really makes a difference in the lives of girls! The founder, Katie Meyler, is a person of real integrity and creativity. She gives her very life to those she is serving. The whole organization is filled with passionate volunteers who give all while taking nothing.

Review from Guidestar
Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteer with More than Me because I believe in the work they're doing with young women in Liberia and the commitment of the MTM team goes above and beyond that of most organizations. These folks are passionate and their energy is contagious. Beyond that, MTM is one of the most fiscally responsible organizations I know. I love knowing that when I donate to MTM, my money is going directly to create solutions and open doors of opportunity for first-time students in Liberia.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the smiles I've seen captured in West Point of young women attending school for the first time.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them more resources, so they can extend their outreach to more young people in Liberia.

Rating: 5 stars  

I sponsor education for girls in Liberia through this non-profit. It is an incredible way to sponsor change. For a small amount of money (by US standards), you can dramatically improve the life of one child. The ripple effect of that donation extends through the family, the community, the country and ,hopefully, the world. I like donating to small, focused non-profits that are making an impact. I am a teacher in a high school program that works with recent immigrants to the USA. I see education as a means to make the world a better place.
