The YP Foundation
October 18, 2009

The YP astounds me. My most recent interaction was on a short film I helped them make for "Blending Spectrum", their street children project. I saw the dedication and commitment they were willing to put in to make the film as heart felt and real as possible. The glamour of film making wears down once you realize long hours and the tediousness of the job. The volunteers at Blending Spectrum however were up to a challenge and showed maturity in knowing what they wanted to put across through the film. They worked with me as a team and we focused our efforts and pulled off a well made film in a limited time frame.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

See to it that there were a few more people in positions of higher responsibility. Right now the weight of the organization lies in the hands of a few who are over worked.

Professional, efficient and hard working.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Go far. They have the vision and the clarity to know what direction to take. I believe that they are worth investing in.

Ways to make it better...

I have worked with the organization more out of respect for what they do and as a friend and not because I was being paid for my expertise. I think that it is important to be paid a nominal fee for my professional advice/service.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Branching out into other cities. Expanding. Funding.
