Recently widowed, I was looking for direction for a non-profit my late husband had founded to promote technical education in Latin America. Happening upon the Global Volunteer Network website, I felt intuitively the GVN Be the Change Program would be a good place to begin anew after the loss of the energy, technical expertise, and love for humanity I had spent the past 45 years supporting. The week in New Zealand with the GVN staff was truly a vision-changing experience for me.

I made certain commitments in the Be the Change program, and it was impossible for me to return to my home in the western United States without a plan of action to implement some of the BTC strategies I was exposed to in New Zealand. Through the website, I learned about the Distribution Trip scheduled for June 2014 in Uganda and signed on to further learn how GVN gets the funds they raise to the actual programs on the ground. It was important to me that the organization itself was not a "Fat Cat", with personnel enjoying the good life while a few dollars trickle to token projects for real people who suffer.

Seeing first hand how GVN-supported projects such as Eat So They Can are at work in Uganda, I can vouch for the integrity and work ethic of the folks at GVN. They are personally invested in their projects and provide hands-on support. They are NOT living high on donated money and giving what's left over to token projects. These people are living and breathing with the people in Africa, Asia and South America who are genuinely able to better themselves through GVN projects. I love these people!

I work for a Rwandan based local NGO (FVA) and a period of slightly more than one year i have known about GVNF i can testify to the world that it is an International organization which has made a great record in transforming lives of the orphans and other vulnerable children in Rwanda. GVNF has impacted them in terms of teaching, donating basic needs to the poorest families and children. Volunteering in health centers for better services delivery in health sector. GVNF surely deserves this recognition and more others to come as a role model international organization.

I have taken part in every Eat So They Can since it began - I've hosted on a cruise ship in the middle of the Atlantic between Southampton & New York, in London, Wellington and Antarctica. The ESTC team are amazing. What impresses me is their dedication and genuine love for the work they do and the people they are helping. Having watched the distribution films, it is evident that the money raised goes directly where it is needed and is life-changing to the recipients.
