I was recently made awar of this organization through a good friend who has joined the board. I firmly believe we desperately need more organizaztions like this, run by women for women and their families. Studies show that when we empower women to change their lives and the lives of their families, we have a huge impact on the whole world. Kudos to World Class-Ghana Inc!!

Many of my family and friends are involved in this wonderful organization and I am proud to be a part of the mission as well. Providing basic necessities like water and sanitation to women is a crucial service and I am impressed by World Class' great accomplishments to date.

Recently a good friend joined the Board of World Cass-Ghana. Based on her encouragement I have learned more about this organization. Three things stand out for me
1. The work of World Class-Ghana is most needed- working to improve water and sanitation in Ghana.
2. The US based staff are all volunteers
3. The organization has involved Ghana woman
World Class-Ghana deserves my suport becuase it has shown success in improvin the towns it has worked with in Ghana

World Class-Ghana is helping people to get opportunities to move beyond poverty and disease...so that they can fulfill thier potential and care for their families. It seems that women, as the family-oriented adults in many families, can often make much with very little and use their new resources to benefit their communities. Although this is not the whole answer to the world's problems, small steps like these contribute to a better world for us all. I am involved in microfinance and have a number of friends who are working with World Class.

Traveling in less developed countries has given me an appreciation for the critical need to start with clean water. It is the basis on which all else rests.

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

Enlarge its scope to reach more families.

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 am familiar with the organization through one of the Board members.

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

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.

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

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
