Programs: Angel covers (ac) is a volunteer run organization dedicated to caring for orphaned and destitute children around the world. Angel covers believes that every child is invaluable and deserves to have their basic nutrition, housing, medical and educational needs met so they can grow into their potential. Breaking the cycle of poverty and empowering children to become self-sufficient adults is our goal. Our administrative costs are less than 6% and we have provided thousands of volunteer hours through the committed efforts of more than 35 volunteers. Directors in charge of monitoring and overseeing programs work more than 40 hours a week to ensure the best possible programs for the children we serve. Every dollar donated to angel covers is used to provide program services to orphans and children. More than 200 children in china and kenya are sponsored and receive education, meals, shelter, and medical care. Another 1,500 children have received ongoing support from angel covers in the form of blankets, meals, basic medical care, and school supplies in our 13 year history. For example, the humble hearts school in nairobi, kenya, with more than 200 children, received funds for teachers salaries, text books, and school supplies. Thoughout 2014, individuals accress the country donated to benefit orphan schools. Toys, blankets, vitamins, and school supplies were collected and will be sent to kenya in 2014. Thanks to blanket sales through our website and additional 48 blankets were donated to orphanages in china; as were dozens of yo-yo's. Angel covers work with orphaned and destitute children in kenya is extensive. In2014, angel covers continued to extensively support the humble hearts school forthe deaf. With approximately 200 students attending humble hearts, the schoolalso provides housing to any student in need. The dedication of the teachers isseen every day. Teachers frequently stay for several hours past the end of theschool day in order to tutor students, create lesson plans, or lead after schoolclubs. Children continue to receive a quality education as demonstrated byincreased test scores, low teacher turnover, and consistent attendance. Extensiveconstruction has been done on the school to correct drainage concerns and repairthe roof that had previous water damage. In 2014, ereaders were introduced to the secondary students at humble hearts, providing them with a library in their hands of more than 200 textbooks and story books. Of the approximately 200 students attending humble hearts in 2014, 180 current live at humble hearts also, providing them a boarding school complete with tutoring and three nutritious meals a day. Because of the boarding possibilities, the number of deaf students living at humble hearts/angel cottage continues to increase. Humble hearts continues to have a reputation throughout kenya as one of the top schools for the deaf, and families arrive weekly from hours away hoping to enroll their children. Now, deaf children who would not otherwise receive an education are attending school, have guaranteed meals each day, and are learning they have unlimited potential. Work continues at humble hearts to develop on-going income generating projects. In 2014, four acres of land continued to be leased and farmed. Corn and beanswere grown, which produced more than a four month supply of corn, beans and cornflour for the school. Chickens continue to be raised and provide meat and incometo the schools meal program. In china at the huaibei swi, more than 40 infants receive formula, tailored to their age and needs, on a monthly basis. Because medically fragile infants need specialized care, angel covers continues a foster care program in huaibei, anhui. Two toddlers were in loving foster homes in 201 and received the individualized care they need and deserve. Additionally, these toddlers were adopted together by an american family, allowing them to be siblings forever. In the autonomous tibetan prefectures, angel covers is involved with severalorphanages and poor rural schools. Seventy-six high school and college age girlsattended school in 2014 thanks to our mamas wish and new, kangding programs and the generosity of sponsors. Because of these programs, girls have a chance to break the cycle of poverty, avoid arranged marriages, and develop skills for independent living. Yaks were purchased again in 2014 and continue to provide milk and butter on a weekly basis to many of the girls in the mamas wish program, as well as numerousother rural schools. The angel covers education director and her daughter spenttwo weeks in china with the mamas wish students gathering reports and purchasingyaks, as well as exploring possibilities for new programs. A small grass-roots organization, angel covers made a positive impact in the livesof more than 500 children in 2014. Children around the world now have beds to sleep in, toys to play with, medical care, and most of allhope for future

We've been supporting Angel Covers since 2008 and it is truly a worthy, grass roots organization. My wife and I visited one of their supported institutions, Humble Hearts School for the Deaf in Nairobi in 2009, and did volunteer work for a week. The staff works for small salaries and are very dedicated to giving a quality education. In addition, communication to those of us who continue to sponsor a child is regular and substantive, reinforcing our satisfaction in continuing our support. And, best of all, all Angel Covers personnel are volunteers and the minimal necessary overhead is covered by contributions specifically for that purpose, so 100% of sponsorship contributions and other donations go directly to the benefit of the people beng helped.

Angel Covers squeezes more benefit out of each dollar than any organization I've ever encountered. We sponsor a child at Humble Hearts School for the Deaf in Nairobi and every one of our dollars goes directly to that child; no one at Angel Covers takes any salary and other incidental overhead (credit card fees, etc.) are covered by other fund-raising activities. We visited Humble Hearts in 2009 and found the director and staff are incredibly dedicated individuals. Teaching staff is paid, but at rates likely well below the market rates. The school also has a number of outside projects such as raising maize (corn) that help in supporting the school's operations.

“Angel Covers” started from a vision of two friends that wanted to provide nurturing help to disadvantaged children and to make a difference in the lives of children around the world and that seed of kindness has grown into an amazing non-profit organization that helps care for orphaned and destitute children around the world. It is so amazing to see what “Angel Covers” has done and continues to do for these Children with the donations to the organization. Thank you to “Angel Covers” for their belief that every child deserves access to quality medical care, education, nutrition and housing. They stand by that and continue to make that belief a reality for so many children.

I have known about Angle Covers since its humble inception and I am in awe about how it is organized and the work that it accomplishes. Not many charitable organizations can accomplish their goals with an all-volunteer staff but Angle Covers manages to do that very nicely. One always has to wonder how much of what they give actually gets to the folks in need, but no worries with this wonderful organization. They are very careful how your gifts are distributed and travel to the orphanages they support insuring that there is little if any waste. We all understand the need and importance of supporting charities and without question, this group of volunteers will see that your gifts are placed where they can do the most good in orphanages around the world. Try them out as it will make you smile.

What is not to LOVE about this non profit foundation? With it's overhead of 3% or less, run by all volunteers, it brings hope to impoverished children throughout the world through education, shelter, nutrition, and medical help. The aim of this foundation is to help children in the short term as well as develop self sustaining projects and life changing skills. Since its inception in 2001, the board of exceptional professionals has directed donations and established programs for children in Africa, China, and Tibet as well as contributed needed supplies in many other regions of the world. I am proud to be both a volunteer and donor to the Angel Covers foundation.

Angel Covers is so faithful to keep its donors and volunteers frequently updated thru photos, blogs, and Face Book. When a project is under way, photos are posted as progress is made. I really appreciate that Angel Covers regularly visits the schools and orphans it supports. It assures that the funds and items I contribute are used as promised. I also like the fact when I send items to a child a photo of the child with the items is sent. There are not too many organizations that accomplishes what Angel Covers does with a total volunteer staff.

Angel Covers does amazing work with orphaned and disadvantaged children. They tirelessly support a school for the deaf in Kenya, and have built wonderful dormitories and classrooms for the children there. I am proud that the names of my daughter and I are on cement blocks in one of the school rooms as donors. The people at Angel Covers are truly dedicated and also excel at keeping their supporters up to date with detailed information on their various projects.
