Review for Fabretto Children's Foundation, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first became acquainted with Fabretto in 2006 after moving to Nicaragua with my spouse - a foreign service officer. Over the course of two years, I became a Fabretto devotee. Now back in the United States, I continue to work with the organization--serving on their advisory board and helping them pursue federal and private partnerships. Fabretto has a proven track record of success in a country where far too many non-profits appear more impressive on paper than in reality. A visit to Fabretto's educational centers is an uplifting experience, and you get a real sense of how respected and appreciated Fabretto is in the communities in which it operates. Among other things, Fabretto feeds children's minds and stomachs. As a rseult, Fabretto's kids are happier and healthier and are better positioned to break the cycle of poverty that plagues far too many communities in Nicaragua. Fabretto is exactly the kind of organic and proven organization that deserves our support. I encourage anyone interested ine helping kids to consider supporting this great organization and its wonderful and committed staff. I simply cannot say enough good things about their efforts on behalf of Nicargua's children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

hard workers! This organization has had a powerful impact operating on a lean budget. This organization is not about building name recognition at the expense helping kids. Fabretto's staff works tirelessly because they know the stakes are too high not to.
