These Numbers Have Faces, Inc.

I first heard about TNHF from a friend of mine while I was describing my struggles to get in touch with a different local nonprofit in the Portland area. She mentioned that she had heard great things about this organization, that it was small, but extremely effective. One glance at their website and I was enthralled. I loved the mantra that called for TNHF to work themselves out of business, by helping to create sustainable change through South African youth in their communities. I immediately emailed the volunteer address and was shocked to receive a personal email from Justin a few hours later, thanking me for my interest. That personal touch is apparent through out the website and in the videos with interviews and speeches given by the scholarship recipients. The humility and dedication of our scholars inspired and motivated me and I am very excited to be a recent member of the TNHF team.
