I was privileged to see first hand the work for clean water and sanitation that World Class-Ghana is doing in villages near Accra. There is no question that important needs of local people are being met. Just as importantly, local people lead the way to the production of a new well or latrine. World Class is very respectful of the opinions and needs of the people they serve. Anyone who supports World Class-Ghana can be sure their efforts are making a positive difference in the lives of very poor people.

World Class is an incredible organization. I really felt like I was very involved from the moment I made my donation. This organization puts their heart and soul into this cause- and it is contagious! Water for bathing and consumption is a right that we take for granted... this charity works to enforce this basic human right!

I was recently made awar of this organization through a good friend who has joined the board. I firmly believe we desperately need more organizaztions like this, run by women for women and their families. Studies show that when we empower women to change their lives and the lives of their families, we have a huge impact on the whole world. Kudos to World Class-Ghana Inc!!

I was a founding member of World Class with my 1971 graduating class at Skidmore College. I have found the work accomplished to be significant to the recipients and rewarding to the donors. The strengthening of society through providing for basic needs, like clean water, sanitation and the ability to support one's family are key to all.

During the summer of 1969, I traveled extensively in Africa with a group of students who had taken a course in African Studies and were witnessing first-hand some of what they had studied. The trip was illuminating in many ways, among them giving us a clear sense of the hardships in the lives of so many Africans, hardships that include, conspicuously, water availability and quality. When I learrned of World Class, I thought their mission admirable, but I was not certain that they would be able to sustain the commitment and drive necessary to have a chance to meet that mission. I needn't have worried: The founders have shown admirable resolve, and the organization has already made significant changes in the lives of many in Ghana, through wells built and planned, through low-cost loans to women, through training of local staff. I supported this organization initially to help it get off the ground; I support it now because I know that it is doing good work, and that it will continue to do so.

This organization has been a work in progress for many years, and has just gotten better and better at what it does. They help women start businesses and more, all most effectively.

With very little money, this group of women friends are helping the poor in Ghana. With emphasis on clean water, job skills, and sanitation.
Their administration is all volunteer.

I know a person who has just gotten involved with this organization and has nothing but positive things to say about it. The wonderful idea that every woman and child should have access to clean/fresh water is a worthy one

World Class Ghana is exceptional in the work it does, accomplishing so much with small resources. The organization also informs its donors often and effectively as to what is being done. They have grown from small beginnings and I am glad to have given to them. They also are very appreciative of what is given and do not resort to high pressure methods.
