Review for Ochan Self-Help Alliance, Inc., Baltimore, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This summer I spent 4 weeks volunteering for Ochan Self-Help Alliance, with William and Bonny Boto. I spent time learning and working with staff in Ochan Community Clinic and conducting a survey relating to maternal healthcare. I felt comfortable and safe throughout the entire duration of my stay, and met some truly incredible people. It was a life changing and rewarding experience; one that I will never forget.

I have seen the difference that Ochan Self-Help Alliance has made through their clinic, farming program, housing, and many other successful programs. It is evident that they have helped empower members of the community, especially the women, to take control of their lives and be a part of change in their village. While assessing and overcoming challenges along the way, Ochan is dedicated to making sure these changes are effective and sustainable. Bonny and William are extremely passionate and committed to their work, with a dedicated vision and beautiful enthusiasm. I know from first hand experience that the people of Opac village have big dreams in rebuilding their community, and are motivated to making them come true.

This is an organization where your time and donations will help create real change and make a difference in the lives of a community.
