I think this project merits support from donors looking to provide help to people who are engaged in grassroots work to help people in developing countries, one person and one village at a time.

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

to observe the passion that the director puts toward trying to build this new organization into a sustainable effort.

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

use the grassroots village-to-village system to move the work across East Africa.

A non-profit motivated by passion and administered with the needs and involvement of the people it serves always at the forefront. I have complete confidence that donations to GVGF fully support equipment and activities that will directly help to build strong, informed, environmentally sound communities in Tanzania.

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

Photos and information shared by Amy.

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

Continue to build a network with other similar environmentally focused non-profits around the world.

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

Watching it grow from Amy's idea to implementation on the ground.

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

Amy's focus and dedication are amazing.

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

Change the lives of huge numbers of people through improved well-being and education.

Ways to make it better...

I can get to Tanzania myself, which I plan to do!

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

Getting the attention of potential donors when there are so many competing worthwhile causes.

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

I'm selective about the charitable organizations to which I contribute, and I'm happy to help Green Village-Green Future!

This is a wonderful project that is providing assistance and, importantly, empowering people to make a positive change in their environment.

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

the examples Amy has shared.

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

be sure to help others know about the needs, good work underway, and how to provide support.

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

knowing the support is making a difference.

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

inspiring!

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

help many more people!

Ways to make it better...

I had more funds to help out.

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

funds and time.

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

this is a project that is worthy of support.

This project is an example of what a few very good people who believe they can make a difference in the world can do when they are truly committed and persevere.

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

through the Amy's correspondences (i.e. fund raisers, e-mail, website, etc.)

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

proceed as is.

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

being introduced to another culture through the lens of someone who has actually experienced it and understands first hands the need of the people who live there, mainly Tanzania.

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

kind, committed and persevering

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

truly impact the lives of the people who live in the village.

Ways to make it better...

I could visit the area myself.

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

raising funds.

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

I'd love to visit!

This project has huge potential because of Amy's dedication to the people of Tanzania and their environment. I am more than happy to sponsor the project as I know the money will go exactly where it is supposed to.

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

the personal approach and the regular feedback.

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

passionate, dedicated, hard-working, driven.

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

dramatically improve living standards in the villages served.
