Review for An Orphans Bright Star Inc, El Lago, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Even through the tough economic times, OBS continues the hard work to improve the lives of children in Ukrainian orphanages, amazing volunteer work from truly committed people who never cease to amaze me. A lot has been done over the past years through OBS to improve living conditions and bring hope and the chance of a better life for children and youngsters with the sponsoring programs and other projects. I am so very proud to be a part of this amazing charity and honor the commitment we took with children in orphanages when we adopted our two beautiful kids.

Review for An Orphans Bright Star Inc, El Lago, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I adopted our eldest son from the Ukraine in 2003. We were desperately sad for the many children we had to left behind, we felt we needed to do something to help them somehow, to improve their lives in any way we could. After a few years I found some information about An Orphans Bright Star and got in touch with them. I learned about their organization and the different ways to contribute and felt in love with their project. Everybody at OBS is totally commited, passionately dedicated to improving the lives of Ukrainian orphans is so many different ways and so open to anyone who has a true interest in making a contribution. I am touched and impressed by the level of dedication to these children, by the scope of their project. I am specially happy that they have allowed me to feel part of the project, always recognizing every little effort, never imposing or making me feel bad when I have had less time and resources. Their transparency, honesty and commitment in running the project, the way they allow you to contribute, to feel that you make a difference have really impressed me. I am so proud to be part of this project and specially of the Vocational education program. We are giving these kids a chance. Amazing work !!

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

It took me out of my comfort area and introduces to some amazing people who are truly comited and have been a guide and an example for me.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Incredibly useful, like I am making a difference in these kids lives, like I am doing something for the orphans we left behind when we adopted our son
