Review for These Numbers Have Faces, Inc., Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

TNHF is a solid nonprofit that is taking an honest look at one specific issue - lack of access to education for black township youth in South Africa - and doing what it can do create positive change for those affected. They are working to break the most debilitating generational poverty cycle that I believe exists. There is clear energy and momentum surrounding this relatively small and young organization. The amount of positive press is only a testament to the power of a transparent, progressive, and grassroots movement. I began volunteering to put my development and business degrees to work, and once inside the organization it was clear that they have a clear sense of purpose and calling. Having worked for a number of similar organizations, I was very impressed at how well TNHF is run, and how clear it is that the mission of the organization comes before anything else. They have a clear identity and that will take them so far.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing (from afar) the first class of youth graduate from college. That was a huge milestone.
