Review for Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In the fall of 2008 I began volunteering at VGIF. After discovering the wonderful work this mainly volunteer organization does, I became more invested in the empowerment of women and girls in developing countries. Currently I work as Grants Assistant and correspond with current, past and prospective grantees. This job gives me a vision of how funding at the grassroots level can truly impact a whole village. VGIF funds remote, often tiny organizations but the impact is anything but. Each day I smile from reading about a successful health seminar, textile workshop, installation of a water well, etc.
