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.

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

I would like to see it in more countries

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.

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

do some ad campaign to highlight the great work they are doing all over the world and also to make it more well known all over.

My son and many other teens are benefited by the YES! course offered by IAHV. I felt that the money donated to IAHV go long way be it for veterans programs or for any trauma relief program. The voluneteers are dedicated and diligent about using the money for administrative expenses.

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.

Have better marketing of its impact.

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.

Very candid and focused organization. Priorities are very clear for every project they have done. Always very well regarded by City and School District officials.

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.

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

Improve their funding. This program should reach all schools not just the few - financial pressures seem to be holding them back.

IAHV undertakes numerous projects that benefit communities all over the world. One of the most prominent projects in the USA is 'YES! For Schools'. I am personally associated with the volunteers of IAHV and impressed with their dedication and hard work. I wish them good luck!
