My Nonprofit Reviews
Hulda A Steele
Review for Outreach International, Independence, MO, USA
At the birth of my first child I felt so fortunate--she was perfect and we were able to provide for all her needs. I became accutely aware of the plight of children in other countries whose parents were not able to provide the basic necessities such as clean water, food, shelter, clothing or education. I checked into many charities at that time and did not feel that their funds were used wisely or that their methods of addressing problems would really solve the problems. Years later we heard about Outreach International. Wow!, their pie chart of how donations are used is to us a wise distribution of funds. And their approach -- Participatory Human Development -- hits the bullseye! Those in need are very much involved in identifying their need/problem. They participate in the plan and they enthusiastically work the plan. And then, many times, they teach neighboring villages how to do the same. Danny and I give joyfully to Outreach International every month. They keep us informed about and involved in their (OUR) projects!
