Review for Grassroot Soccess Inc, Norwich, VT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Grassroot Soccer turns small investments into big impact. I got to know GRS while I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in South Africa. They gave me basic free resources and guidance to implement their HIV education programs in my rural village, and it was one of the most impactful parts of my service. My students learned a great deal about a critical issue in their lives, and it was a very rewarding experience for my co-coach, a local sports coach who'd always wanted to get involved in helping his community but had never been given the right opportunity to shine. Later I volunteered at GRS headquarters in Cape Town to help with their Peace Corps partnership and it cemented to me what a powerful program it is and how dedicated the staff are. I'm proud to continue to support Grassroot Soccer to this day.

Review for Books For Africa, Inc., St. Paul, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm a Peace Corps Volunteer coordinating several library projects in rural communities throughout South Africa - when looking for sources of donated books, word of mouth among other volunteers recommended BFA. Working with Books for Africa to distribute a shipment of 22,000 books to rural communities has been wonderful. I have been impressed by their professionalism and helpfulness throughout the process. They make the often-complex process of receiving books very clear for communities and folks in the field. The books donated to BFA are stocking libraries in impoverished areas where kids are really thirsty for reading materials - they're making an incredible difference.
