It is just nice to be able to give to an organization where you know that your dollars, your service and your prayers go to a great cause and where every dollar goes directly to the place you designate it!

I have volunteered to assist this amazing organization on various occasions because the work they are doing is so incredible. They have gone into areas that no one else was interested in going to in order to help an entire village to improve their standard of living. They have been able to get running water, electricity and phone lines into the village they have assisted in Peru and have helped refugees in Uganda, slaves in Sudan, political prisoners in Kenya and impoverished people here in the US. I am proud to help them raise funds for their amazing endeavors!

Without Shekinah Gloria Ministries there would be 50+ children who would not have ever had the chance to have an education, or have the blessing of learning about Jesus and most likely they would not have the meals and clothing that they have now. In addition to the daily care and love of these children who are so precious, there would be thousands who would have never heard the Good News of Christ. Every summer Shekinah Gloria brings a group to various areas of Peru to spread the good news and so many end up giving their lives over to Christ. The group also visits the garbage dumps where many are forced to live in horrible poverty. The group brings tons (literally) of rice, other foods, clothing and hope. Shekinah is a huge extended hand of Christ who needs your prayer and support to continue in the care of these kids. Hopefully someday they can expand the school or build another one so that these kids will not end up working on farms with no education. No hope and insufficient care. Thank you so much for all you do. Maria Arthur

Just knowing these kids have a better life means the world to me.

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

Expand the school, better the actual structure and/or build a bigger school with more amenities for the kids. I would love to see services for the kids parents as well. I would further love to be able to pay for all of this personally!

Shekinah Gloria Ministries is a great ministry that God is using to reach and help people in the world. God called all the world to be fishers of men and this ministry is being obedient to Gods call and going into the world. Where they go is tough and not for the faint at heart, but they have the burden of reaching these people and we all should be supporting them in one for or another.

I love the work that Shekinah Gloria is doing for the children in Peru. Matt has such a heart to see these children get an education and to give the children much needed food. He works hard to raise the funds needed to keep the school going and growing.
I have heard Matt's story of how he
started this school and seen many videos and pictures of trips that he has made with teams from our church.

I have been a donor and a volunteer with this organization. I saw lives changed when I went to Peru with them in 2009. I visited a school that that they built in Peru and met the children and families that they are helping. Many of them wouldn't have a chance for a better life without this organization. Praise God for this ministry.

This is the kind of organization that makes you wish you had $20,000 sitting in a can somewhere.
I've always wished I could do more to help these people because they are doing an amazing work and seeing amazing results.
I have watched them start off as a small effort and turn into a
multinational organization with little help and insufficient funding.
God is doing some great things through them and I hope this review helps others to see what a blessing they are!

The Great!

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

watchign them start this organization from a small parachurch organization in Baldwinsville, NY and turn into a major impact worldwide.

Ways to make it better...

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

Get them more funding and full-time paid staff. They are very limited because no one there receives a salary and I think they could do an even greater work if they were able to dedicate themselves fulltime.

I have been working in ministry for many years and have had the privilege of doing humanitarian work in various nations across the globe. I had the honor a few years back of visiting Nuevo Jordan school in Trujillo, Peru while I was doing some outreach work in Peru. This ministry was one of the best I have seen in my travels and is a highly autonomous work even though the funding is external in nature. Their staff were wonderful people and the students were some of the happiest children I have ever met. I could feel such a peaceful presence when I arrived at the school and will never forget that wondeful little oasis in the middle of the sugar cane fields!

The Great!

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

Trujillo, Peru in either 2008 or 2009. My memory is failing me right now.

Ways to make it better...

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

I am not fully aware of how this organization works, but the only change I could suggest based on my limited experience with them would be to get more indigenous forms of assistance in funding their ministry in Peru.

More feedback...

How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?

Very Well

How much of an impact do you think this organization has?

Life-changing

Will you recommend this organization to others?

Definitely

What is unique about this organization?

When I visited their work I had a conversation with their president and he sent me full financials for the previous year. Not one board member or officer of the organization had a salary and as a matter of fact the adminstrative costs did not come from their donations- they paid them out of pocket! I've never seen another organization do anything even remotely similar to that!!

I have been a donor to this charity for many years and am well pleased with the level of commitment and dedication that Shekinah Gloria Ministries has to assuring that their donors money goes directly to the cause. We have seen them do some amazing things over the years with a shoestring budget and the staff of the charity has worked probono in order to assure that they do as much work as possible. There are hundreds, maybe even thousands of kids whose lives are better because of their hardwork and dedication and I hope that they continue to grow and to operate with the high level of integrity that they have! They're not just a great nonprofit. They are an amazing nonprofit!!!
The child I personally sponsor has written me saying how changed their life is because of this organization and my giving and I wish everyone would give so that they could help more kids like mine!

The Great!

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

my child sponsorship. The child I sponsor has had her entire life changed because of this organization.

Ways to make it better...

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

Get more funding so that they could do more work. They literally have more dedication then anyone I have ever seen and I would love to see them be able to fulfill their dreams and reach even more children.

Definitely

How likely are you to donate to this group again?

Definitely

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

The project I gave to is their school which they founded in a very poor area in Peru. The New Jordan school needed sponsors to help fund the eduation and food for the students and I took on a role as a sponsor many years ago.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

Because of the pressing need and the fact that I felt my heart opened to those precious kids.

What would you tell others about this organization?

They are amazing people and do an amazing work... DEFINITELY WORTH YOUR TIME TO CHECK THEM OUT AND TO HELP THEM TO HELP OTHERS.
