I first met Ryan Keith, founder of Forgotten Voices, in a Politics class at Messiah College. As a recent alum, Ryan had come back to share with us the work that he was doing in Zimbabwe. I remember being so enthused and so inspired by Ryan's passion and vision. As I finished my time at college and was blessed with a full time job, I began to donate and invest in the ministry of Forgotten Voices. I am so thankful for the transparency of this organization and the work that they do. I love the way that they partner with local communities and churches to bless the people of Zimbabwe. What a great and inspiring organization!

A local nonprofit that I'm happy to endorse, Forgotten Voices was started a few years ago by an incredibly motivated friend of mine who left his career to launch this organization and focus full time on making a difference in the lives of AIDS orphans across southern Africa. Through strategic partnerships with organizations already on the ground in Zimbabwe and Zambia, Forgotten Voices is able to effectively grow sustainable development programs and train local people to care for the scores of children orphaned by AIDS in their communities. Not only do I find the projects and work of Forgotten Voices to be admirable, but also their committement to financial accountability. Obviously, the organization is dependant upon it's donor base to operate and provide services, but even in these turbulent economic times they are committed to using 90% of all donations to fund projects in Africa. That's an incredibly high rate and it just makes you feel like the money you give really is going to where it's needed most. You can also request to see their IRS tax forms as well if you're still not convinced they are being good stewards of your donations. The great part about giving to an organization focused on a third world country is that your money goes a lot further, and you even if you don't have much extra to share you can still make a difference- just $15 sends an orphaned child to school in Zimbabwe for an entire year. I'd definitely encourage anyone interested in helping orphaned children to check them out.

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

Is their enthusiasm to help children that are helpless. I also really appreciate their committment to using 90% of donations to directly fund projects in Africa.

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

Wonderful people, they have their hearts in the right place and I can't speak highly enough of them.

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

Well change the world for starters. I honestly have complete confidence that if this money magically became available they would build an effective strategy to help AIDS orphans and their communities all across Africa in a completely responsible way.
