My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Seeds of Love, Santa Clara, CA, USA
I came to know Semillas De Amor several years ago. I have visited two times and volunteered. I helped feed children, train their dogs and play with the children. The children are open, loving and live a very good life with art lessons, horseback riding lessons, music lessons, and swimming lessons. They go to school on the premises, go on field trips and have many opportunities for self growth. I enjoyed playing soccer with the kids and reading books to them. Their meals looked delicious and the kids seemed to enjoy them as well. Their home is spacious, well organized and very clean! Their garden is spectacular! They have several avacado tress and the children enjoy picking them. They have chickens for fresh eggs too. I was very impressed with the overall efficiency of how the children's home was ran.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the children be adopted one by one and go to their waiting adoptive parents.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
suggest they build a home for the director next store to the property. Suggest they buy a mini- school bus for transporting the kids.
