After reviewing The God's Child Project's operations, I was so impressed by their efficiency, effectiveness and openness of their finances, as well as their ability to stretch donations as far as humanly possible, that I volunteered full-time for 4 months. It was the greatest thing I have ever done and I have since brought down friends, colleagues and associates from all walks of life. While I was at The God's Child Project program I sorted clothing, built houses, handed out food, and worked as a teacher. When I met the executive director I was impressed by his humility; he was unloading donated food off of a truck so for nearly an hour I thought he was just another volunteer. Then a staff member came and told him he had to get ready to meet with the Vice-President. If you are pure in your motivations and want to work with and support a real charity, this is the real deal. If you are into power trips, and for some reason a lot of potential volunteers and donors are, no one in The God's Child Project is going to let that happen. There's too much real work to be done and they've been making real changes in countries all over the world for nearly 25 years. The finances are externally and independently audited yearly in the United States and every three months in the international programs that the Gods child Project supports. Those external audit reports are available to anyone and everyone.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I wish this group had more money. Their ability to stretch the donated dollar is amazing. They definitely need to do a better job of marketing the story of their efforts so that they can raise more funds to allow them to do even more work.
