All of my experience with AWA has been excellent. I try to donate money each month, and I am able to get online and see where my money is going. Great communications on the website, and through email. Plenty of pictures as well, (which I like seeing). Year end receipts are always prompt, and their whole mindset is really why I donate to them in the first place. They are all about your sphere of influence, and helping people (not just in other countries but here as well) understand that they CAN make a difference to those struggling around them and around the world.
I have seen the amazing effects that this organization has on the volunteers as well as those they are helping. They truly believe in helping those less fortunate gain the knowledge needed to help themselves. Many family and friends have returned from their mission changed for the better and a more open heart to help those that are less fortunate. Hearing the stories of what great things are being done in South Africa to help is evdence that we can make a difference.
