My involvement in OHS is as a donor for the past 5 years. I became aware of the group through my daughter's involvement. I have watched as she and other members of the group have grown in their awareness and dedication to the dire situation faced by some because of the lack of basic education. This group has exceeded any expectations that I had. Their commitment to the children and their families that they serve should serve as an example to NGO's worldwide. As a parent, I am impressed and confident with OHS' commitment to their volunteers to ensure that they are safe and encouraged to learn, grow, and flourish in their time spent with the organization.

My daughter volunteered in Zanzibar this summer and had an incredible time. I contributed to her fundraising even though I was quite worried about her going to Africa. While at first I was nervous about her traveling so far by herself, I was quickly relieved by the thorough, professional, and helpful staff and organization. I emailed the staff multiple times with my questions. We received prompt and comprehensive responses that clearly revealed that One Heart Source was taking all the necessary safety measures.

Upon returning, my daughter has shared her amazing stories with us. She taught kids and adults in a village, and then did art club in the evening with other students. Every time she talks about her experience she lights up with happiness. I am so proud of her. She is already talking about wanting to return. I hope one day I can go back with her.

Where is the COMMUNICATION?????? Have contributed money to a volunteer "My Daughter" who is planning on traveling to Zanzibar next week. When I asked her about the recent security matters and her concerns she had not heard anything from the organization.
If you expect people to contribute to a great cause you need to be a great communicator.

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

COMMUNICATION!
