Review for Hekima Place Inc, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered at Hekima Place for a month in 2007. I had not expected that I would still be involved with this organization for the long-run, but I was so impressed by what I experienced there. The girls are happy in this family-like situation, and refer to each other as "sisters". They realize the wonderful educational opportunities that have been offered to them, and are very appreciative for all their blessings. Because I believe in the good work at Hekima Place, I have often spoken about it at various clubs and meetings. People are pleased to donate when they realize that their money wholly goes to help the girls in Kenya, and that they can get a tax receipt as well. I correspond regularly with three girls from Hekima Place, and hear often from Kate Fletcher, the founder and director. As well, I am in touch with current volunteers and all report on the good work at Hekima Place!
