Clean water and sanitation are expected in our own communities, but available in many communities in Ghana only with the help of outside volunteers and donors. A grant for $5000 will go far as World Class-Ghana helps the people begin to address these needs. It will contribute to improved health and life style of the people, enable them to move on to increased independence, and demonstrate the goodness and generosity of the American people.

I would look for additional ways to spread the message of its work.

I am proud to be a partner in World Class Ghana. I have watched with great joy as the efforts of this group have become realities . . . Funding to the entrepreneurs of Ammasaman and now water and sanitation to the surrounding communities. I am also pleased to know that because it is an all volunteer effort, the funds acquired by World Class are all used to support the goals of bringing better health and happiness to our Ghanaian partners.

As i looked at thewebsite, it seemed to me that there are so many needs in the world, especially of basics like water, that a loan program using small amounts allows local communities to better themselves by doing things themselves.

since it is in Africa I have not seen the results other than pictures on the web

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

encourage them to expand their efforts

Aplus to world class!

World Class-Ghana is one of the most positive and successful organizations that I have been involved with. The people directly involved with administering the funds for the wells and sanitation facilities, as well as the micro-lending are extremely organized and are very good at relaying information and progress to all of us. We have proof of the success of our donations and their work. The women who work directly with the people in the villages have sent us many photographs, journals, etc. We know just what's going on and it makes us feel more connected to the progress. Being a part of World-class Ghana has been a wonderful experience.

I am so very proud of the women and fellow classmates who gave birth to World Class. Providing clean water and sanitation to a deveoping community is essential. To actually be able to see the results of people's donations and selfless hard work is so very rewarding. With a low overhead and minimal administrative costs you know that our donations are being used for their intended purpose.

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

Barbara and Judy continually send us updates and photos and make us all feel that we have shared in their experiences.

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

I wish that more people knew about and supported this most worthy organization.

Of all the nonprofits I have been involved with, mostly as a donor, I have never seen one take off so quickly and be so effective in so short at time as World Class-Ghana. It's a combination of the right outreach program at the right time for a bunch of college classmates looking to honor their years together in a meaningful way, and the unbelievable energy, commitment and vision of Judy Willsey.

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

Donating and reading about its results.

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

Find ways to replicate its success in more villages
