This is an exceptional organization. I have volunteered and become acquainted with several non-profit groups. Humanity Corps is meeting a key need in Ecuador. Several children in Ecuador are held back simply because parents can't afford books, supplies, tuition. Humanity Corps not only helps children by providing scholarships to bridge this gap, but also they provide tutoring services and in some cases help with temporal needs such as clothing or necessities. Humanity Corps is always trying to do things the smart way. They are all about long-term solutions and not just band-aid solutions that fade. Also, most impressively the officers/board members administering/fundraising are all volunteers. The only paid staff are those working as teachers or helping with the construction of the school there in Ecuador. This really makes your donation go so much further.

The Great!

I had the opportunity to visit the schools and children Humanity Corps sponsors in Ecuador. Without Humanity Corps’ dedication and contribution none of the children I met would be in school expanding their education. The children showed me the ovens they work at after school to make the bricks their village sells. Without Humanity Corps they would probably be working all day at those ovens. The children had such a light and joy in their eyes when they met the founders of Humanity Corps. They brought us bouquets of wild flowers they picked along the path to school – taking care those flowers did not wilt for the 45 minute trek – to thank us. The children at FAHUM and EXAN have become one nit family. Their sense of love and community is overwhelming. It broke our hearts when teachers from their school brought several children to us and asked if we could add them to our list of sponsored children. They explained that the families could not continue paying for them to go to school. We promised to do what we could to increase Humanity Corps’ sponsorship capacity. I fell in love with each child apart of FAHUM (in the city of Cuenca) and EXAN (in Guayaquil). They shared their talents and love with us. They were ever so grateful to us for helping provide the opportunity to have teachers, instruction, friends, and an enjoyable & safe environment to learn.

The Great!

I've seen the joy radiate from the children's eyes because they have a safe place to learn and individual attention from instructors to guide them toward progression. Many of the children are able to receive academic scholarships from the government because they were able to so well in their school work because of the outside tutoring and instruction Humanity Corps sponsors.

Humanity Corps needs more volunteer involvement in order to increase awareness and and receive donations. The only method of providing more children with the opportunity to go to school and end the cycle of poverty in their families and communities is help from donors. They do not have the means to break from that cycle on their own. They need help from others who are blessed with greater means.

Was your donation impactful?

Definitely

How likely is it that you would recommend that a friend donate to this group?

Definitely

How likely are you to donate to this group again?

Definitely

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

I can provide a beautiful child with the opportunity to have a little more joy in a difficult life by donating a little so that he could go to school for one additional year - something my family never had to worry about for myself.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

I have no justification or reason to claim my material needs are more important than the opportunity for a child to go to school.

What would you tell others about this organization?

I understand it can be difficult to budget donations when we all have financial demands. I hope there is just one small purchase you can live without to help one of these children - they live without a lot of what we take for granted.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
