More feedback

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

...so dedicated to lifting children out of their dire situations through excellent education. I was continuously inspired by the tireless efforts!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

...literally change the course of thousands upon thousands- one educated child at a time. And in so doing- the world will have a profound shift.

Ways to make it better...

I had had MORE time to give to the school! ;)

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

FUNDING. And, to some degree, public awareness of how much wonderful work they are doing and have done.
