I have been donating to IAHV for several years. I have met several volunteers and have been really touched by the dedication and commitment. It is one of the few organizations which offer holistic solutions to issues we are facing today. And also most of the contrubution goes to the project and only few %goes to administration.

I'm frequent donor for their children education program. I've visited the schools and seen the progress in under privileged children, whose no prior generations had any education. The schools are very clean, food is very healthy, and really makes smart and brilliant students. One most wonderful aspect about this organization is they are completely run by volunteers and therefore their administrative costs are low turning most of your donations into direct benefit to the society.

IAHV has been one of the first organizations to respond to natural as well as man made calamities around the world. I have contributed to their many volunteer efforts - from Bosnia war to 9/11, Tsunami, Iraq war, Afghanistan war and other such tragedies. The organization is well run with respected leaders from the community. I have found IAHV volunteers to be truly selfless in service and genuine in their passion for the cause. I recommend this organization highly.

I was monitoring the work iAHV was doing for Uttrakhand disaster relief in India. I followed their calls from the disaster site to educate donors on the ground challenges and was amazed at the dedication the volunteers showed.

Their work in trauma relief is extremely praiseworthy.

The work that is being done through the YES for High Schools program is just phenomenal. Providing the right tools to teens, empowering them to make the right choices and helping them deal with stresses - whether it is in troubled neighborhoods or in high achieving schools - is something unique to this program.
