My organization, SolarCyle, partnered with the Dream Project in Pemba, Mozambique, to distribute 45 solar cookers and over 300 sanitation units to local families. As a startup organization unfamiliar with Pemba, we relied on the Dream Project to help us get set up in the local community, find families to test our novel solar cookers, help us find translators, and navigate government bureaucracies. Julie Malacusky, the local project director for the DP, went above and beyond in helping us get settled in Pemba. Beyond that, everyone at the DP was a wealth of knowledge of the local community and always willing to help us out whenever we needed. Finally, the DP center provided a great diversion as the kids were always energetic and enthusiastic and up for a game of soccer or basketball. With the help of the DP, we were able to impact the the lives of over 2000 people in the Pemba community and grow our startup organization. I could not recommend the DP more highly to anyone thinking about working or donating.

The Great!

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

Pemba, Mozambique.

Ways to make it better...

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

be trying to do things as well as they already do them at the DP.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

spending time with the kids in the orphanage. They are from the poorest of the poor in Pemba and

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

enthusiastic, driven, and dedicated to making a difference in the community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make an unbelievable difference in the lives of impoverished and disenfranchised orphans in the developing world.

Ways to make it better...

we had realized the wealth of knowledge the staff had about the local community earlier in our pilot project!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

I honestly don't know enough about the challenges that are facing the Dream Project as a whole to comment on this question.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the DP is a great partner and cause even if you are not a non-faith based organization (we are a technology company) or faith-focused donor!
