Review for Artists Striving To End Poverty Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ASTEP has got to be one of the most reliable, genuine non-profits out there. It was established by a group of college students attending Juilliard whose only plan at the time was to give their time and energy through the arts to help as many people as they can. It has quickly evolved into an intense network of giving. The administration behind this organization is a young, generous group of individuals who put aside their career dreams as dancers, actors and musicians so that they could help as many children through the arts as possible. Living overseas in Uganda and working with former street children, I have experienced how powerful art can be to children who have had to deal with a great deal of suffering in their lives. I fully support this organization's mission and future vision.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how incredibly generous they are with their time and energy. They made the partnership with Nesco a very easy one for me, and they even followed up on it in great depth. It is obvious they have a genuine care for humanity everywhere.

Ways to make it better...

I had been able to connect with them more often. Since I live in Uganda, it is hard to communicate on a consistent basis.
