My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Dining For Women, Greenville, SC, USA
I have been a Chapter Leader with DFW for almost 5 years! Our chapter has an average of 12-15 women attend each monthly meeting. Through the collective giving model of DFW, we feel we are making a real difference in women and children's lives all over the world. Each month through the educational materials that DFW provides, we learn about the country, culture and women's issues of the program we are funding that month. We see and hear the impact of the programs through the DVD that is provided to us each month. We are learning each month how this program targets one of the Millennium Development Goals that the United Nations have established and hope to reach by 2015. More and more women throughout the U.S. and world are finding out about the DFW movement and the strides we are making in assisting women and children in developing countries to reach their goals for education, improved health, and self-sustainable livelihoods. Our chapter members are promoting change, saving lives, and giving a voice to women who have been voiceless. We feel empowered that we know where our money is going, and what it will do. None of this would be possible without the excellent leadership, tenacity, compassion and humility of Marsha Wallace, Founder of DFW, the DFW Board of Directors and the many volunteers from DFW's chapter members that keep moving DFW forward. DFW members are getting the word out about this fabulous organization and it keeps growing! I believe that the knowledge that we have received since our membership with DFW is changing our own lives for the better. I feel that the support we give to other women all over the world can eventually impact everyone in our world and hopefully, in time, lead to more peace and stability throughout the world.
