Frances and Henry Riecken Foundation, Inc.
August 23, 2012

We all are witness of well-meaning efforts resulting in bureaucracies eating away available funds, consultants who produce nothing more than useless reports, recipients who do not appreciate or use effectively what they get. The Riecken libraries and community centers in Guatemala and Honduras are exactly the opposite of this scenario. Available funds are used wisely and well. The results are formidable. Recipients are enthusiastic with the help they receive, especially the children. These children are growing up with something all children in underdeveloped countries of the world should have: an opportunity to improve themselves and to have the tools to get out of the vicious circles of ignorance and poverty. And the people in the communities Riecken serves have a community center where they pursue productive and worthwhile activities that benefit everybody. The Riecken model is an example of how organizations should work. I have been a witness of their efforts and their successes. The Riecken Foundation deserves all the help it can get.
