This organization spams universities all over the country with fliers trying to lure students into "volunteering". It is really a scam to separate college students from $2500. Yes, the volunteers are expected to pay for their trip. It is not so much a non-profit as a money-sponging charity. A large portion of the student's money goes to keep the administrators in chardonnay and goat's cheese from Whole Foods. The organization refuses to release statistics about how much of every dollar actually goes to Africa. Don't let them pull your heart strings with advertisements showing sad-faced little children. It's not about the children it's about making the people running the non-profit fatter.

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

A California University

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

Shut it down.
