The work of Orphans' Heroes (OH) is truly changing lives. I write this from a volunteer perspective as I have now traveled to Ghana, Africa twice to volunteer to work in orphanages and teach music with children. The second time I visited Ghana I brought my entire family and a few friends along with me. Under the direction of Jennifer Millett-Barrett of OH we were aware of the specific needs of the children before we arrived at the orphanage, and so we brought many supplies overseas with us. Jennifer's outstanding leadership of Orphans' Heroes has made this non-profit soar. Jen is constantly researching and building awareness about the needs of vulnerable children world-wide. Her passion and dedication is infectious and creates a feeling of commitment among all of us who support and volunteer through OH. She has become a mentor to me, and a friend. I have plans to return to Ghana soon to help OH with caring for children, researching, or anything they might need. I believe, 100%, in the integrity and vision of Orphans' Heroes.
