Review for National Relief Charities, Sherman, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the opportunity to get to know some of the staff at the National Relief Charities over the past few years through our shared interest to help the native people of our country. I have had many conversations over the phone and in person about their programs, and they have always responded with enthusiasm to hear my ideas of how to make a difference as well as proudly tell me about their newest programs. I am happy to help support their ideas and sincerely believe they are doing positive things for native communities. I was also impressed that they are mindful to be sensitive to support what the native communities really want for themselves, and not dictate from an outsider's viewpoint. One of the NRC branches, the American Indian Education Foundation, offers a scholarship service which seems to truly give hope to the natives who strive to improve their education and reach higher goals. I met one of their scholarship recipients a year ago or so and was impressed how touched and appreciative the student was for his opportunity to study the field that interested him. I came to realize that even a small donation impacts the native communities in a deep way, which continues to inspire me to do as much as I can to be a part of it. As decedents of colonists who treated the original people of this land with little respect and fairness, we carry a huge debt towards our native Americans. Their misfortune today is a direct cause of our ancestor's trickery and plunder. It is only just that we now try to right that wrong in any way we can. There is so much we can learn from them.
