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

I saw my donations given in a way fully consistent with my desires and far exceeding my expectations!

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

Get more donors and more support!

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!

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 can't think of any changes that I would make. They are doing the best that they can with the funds and personnel that they have.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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