Children's Global Alliance
August 20, 2013

This non-profit organization is incredible and helps so many different groups of people have a life changing experience, the American students we bring, the children we work with in foreign countries, the families of the students we bring, and the chaperones. I have been involved with CGA for 2 years and have had the opportunity to travel as a chaperone to Cambodia twice. CGA gave me my first chance to travel to another country and I was able to be a part of something amazing while on this journey. Being involved with Children's Global Alliance has personally helped strengthen many aspects of my life including my leadership, organization, fundraising, time management, and motivation to help others.

The students who are involved in this program are held to an incredibly high standard and are pushed to reach their potential through lesson planning, presenting information on the country they will travel to, community service hours, and the hard work that needs to be put forth while on the trip. Every single student comes away from these trips a better person in at least one aspect of their life.

The children that we have the amazing opportunity to work with in these foreign countries will be in my heart forever. Their smiles never leave my mind, and when I am frustrated and stressed out in my daily life, I think about how content these children are with what they have, and I am thankful for my life. The children do not have many things in their lives and it is incredible when we are able to provide them with things such as enough food to eat, running water, delousing products, a bed inside a dormitory, and love.

I am confident it would be in any individuals best interest to become involved with this organization as it is sincerely life changing. I absolutely love the experiences I have had and hope to be involved with this organization for many years to come.
