My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Pagus:Africa, Norristown, PA, USA
It is unusual to know that every dollar you donate to a charity goes directly to the projects on the ground. This is the case of Pagus Africa. The children and families we work to help get to benefit directly from the programs we run in Ghana and since all our participants are volunteers we get to put every dollar to work.
Spending money is no guarantee for success in this kind of work. We have at this time, after working with two communities over a number of years, a clear and vivid measurement of what has been achieved. It is evident in the healthy, bright, educated children who are coming out of the school with whom we have been working the longest. Children who would not have had any real education and who would have suffered from lack of food and health care, now step out into Ghanian society full of possibility. This is real and sustainable change.
The process is slow and challenging but thanks to the work of this small non profit lives are being transformed. The volunteers who have spent time in Ghana are also changed by the experience. It is a immersion in a rich and complex culture that enriches us as much as the children with whom we work.
Check out this small focused non profit and see for yourself. Call us up and ask us questions. Get involved in making a difference while opening doors in your own mind and your own heart.
My story is that this has happened to me through my contact and work with Pagus Africa. My eyes and my heart have been opened to things I would never have imagined. I have been lucky enough to witness the transformations about which I write. I have seen the difficulties and the frustrations but I have also seen the successes and most of all I have seen the children. I have seen what can be done and how powerful that work is.
