Review for Pearl S. Buck International, Inc., Perkasie, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Pearl S. Buck International has a long history of working to deliver education, health and welfare support to disadvantaged children in many Asian countries, while leveraging the legacy of Pearl S. Buck in teaching the values and importance of cultural diversity.

In my long affiliation with Pearl S. Buck International, I have had the opportunity to travel to several Asian countries to see first hand, the very poor living conditions and the significant impacts that the PSBI programs make there. As a child sponsor, I am humbled by the frequent letters I receive from the children I support through the PSBI sponsorship programs, and have watched over time how they have progressed and prospered.

The team at PSBI, in working to preserve the legacy of Pearl Buck, has touched thousands of lives and continues to do so on very thin budgets. The mission of PSBI continues to help to build bridges between the East and West, helping generations of children reach their dreams.

I've had the privilege and pleasure to be associated with the team at Pearl S. Buck International for almost 10 years now, in a variety of volunteer capacities. This organization consistently demonstrates passion, professionalism and the highest integrity in serving the needs of disadvantaged children in the US and abroad, while continuing to promote important messages related to cultural sensitivity and equality originally espoused by Pearl S. Buck. This is a very deserving organization with solid leadership and vision.

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the privilege of serving on the Pearl S. Buck International board for more than 3 years now, and continue to be tremendously impressed with the sophistication, professionalism, and dedication of the PSBI staff and volunteer groups who focus on the needs of disadvantaged children in many countries. This organizaiton exemplifies the highest values of a non-profit organization focused on helping others and has worked with superhuman effort to preserve and extend the vision of Pearl S. Buck, impacting >2 million children. I have been repeatedly touched by the positive and life-changing impact PSBI has had on the lives of children and adults alike through the many stories told by those so affected. Through the PSBI Opportunity House Program, I have been privileged to have a channel to sponsor a wonderul young girl in the Phillipines. Our periodic correspondence is delightful and her life challenges are eye opening lessons in humility for my family. The benefits of connecting with PSBI are too numerous to highlight in this short review.
