ELISABETH PH HEISER FOUNDATION
June 18, 2011

I visited the Mere Admirable Orphanage in 2006 which is supported by the Elisabeth PH Heiser Foundation. As an experiential trip for my senior year of high school, I spent my weeks at the orphanage creating a short-film highlighting the orphanage and comparing it to other orphanages in the surrounding area. In addition, leaders of the orphanage and myself began a grant-writing process to find further funding for the project.

The orphanage itself is a safe and healthy community in which vulnerable children in the DRC can find a safe-haven in the bustling metropolis of Kinshasa. All of the individuals involved with the orphanage are dedicated to the cause and left me feeling that these children will grow up to represent a new generation of educated and determined individuals. Elisabeth is an amazing woman who is working hard to ensure the lives of these children are in the best care and that they receive the attention and care needed.

My experience with the orphanage has been nothing but positive and I feel that this project is something that should and could be replicated throughout the DRC to help vulnerable and displaced children.

The Great!

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

keeping in contact with the Director Elisabeth and the children and hearing stories of their success.

Ways to make it better...

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

ensure that the orphanage has a sustainable source of funding for generations to come.

MY ROLE:
