I have been involved with Nobelity Project as a volunteer and board member for over five years. All of my experiences with them have been extraordinary. The imagination, determination and hard work of the two founders is exceptional. The organization exceed in stewardship of funds, partnerships and community involvement.

The Nobelity Project is a great local organization with a strong following in Austin, but has a surprisingly broad reach. While their focus is on education, I think part of the appeal for supporters is the variation of programs in Kenya, Mexico, Honduras and here in the US. Whether you want to help provide access to clean water, help students succeed around the globe, or focus on conservation efforts - there's a NOBEL cause to get behind ;p
They work hard, throw really fun events and heed most any proposition that comes their way so long as it fits within their mission of bridging gaps towards a greater good. The folks at Nobelity prove local acts can have a global impact! It's amazing what one little nonprofit can do.

I've actually heard directly from some of the people affected by the work they do in Kenya and they could not be more positive about the efforts of The Nobelity Project. That led to me becoming a donor and recently I helped them raise money for their Bikes and Books project by riding almost 750 miles across Texas. Very impressive organization

Watching Nobelity grow from the roots up made a big impression on me - Austinites choosing a cause, one worlds away, finding their path, and succeeding in making an impact. Thank you, Nobelity, for inspiring a young volunteer.

As a Gen Y type, it is great to find an organization that addresses important issues in a way that is relevant and applicable. Powerful film coverage brings these topics into clear focus and makes it easier to understand the human stories involved.

We used The Nobelity Project film and educational materials while I was in model UN in high school. It gave us great context to discuss issues that effect us as a global population. I love that they are telling positive stories about meeting the challenges that face us all. It gives me hope.

It has been wonderful to watch the Nobelity Project grow over the years from Turk Pipkin's film Nobelity where he interviewed Nobel Prize winners to becoming hands on by building Mihaga Hope the first secondary school in a remote area of Kenya. Students who would never have had the chance are now attending college. The Nobelity Project has now helped many communities in Kenya build a school and the water systems necessary to support a school. Great work!

The Nobelity Project is making a positive change globally and in the Austin area. Working for children in other areas of the world is creating positive change and connecting people in a deep, meaningful way. Their educational outreach program is incredible. Students in the US learn about social action and global competencies and participate in service lhttp://greatnonprofits.org/organizations/reviews/nobelity-project/#r_id-229698--user_id-293347earning. The students are able to understand and act on global issues.

I led a group of young girls group who fundraised during each school year to earn money to travel and work at threatened habitat sites around the country for several weeks each summer. Nobelity most generously let these girls show one of their films as a fundraiser, which brought in 150 people and about $1,000 for these girls' work. Christy also came and talked about the work in a most accessible way. Nobelity is a wonderful example of a true grass roots movement - giving credence to the statement that just a few individuals can make a huge difference in the world. Thanks Nobelity for all the good work you do!

I've had the pleasure of working directly with the Founders on The Nobelity Project, and can tell you that these folks are the real deal.

Whether it be through their film making, the work that they do to build schools and help provide water for communities in Africa, or their initiative to "Replant the Park" after a devastating forest fire in Bastrop, Texas--Turk and Christy work tirelessly to help others and make a positive difference in the world.

The Nobelity documentaries and accompanying educational materials provide learner-directed opportunities for people of all ages to get smart, get involved, have fun, and change the world!
