ST LABRE INDIAN SCHOOL
December 10, 2010
I've supported the Indian children of St. Labre for more than 20 years. This is a place that is actually accomplishing good things not only for the children it serves, but also for the families of these children. The only way these kids are going to make something of their lives is with the exceptional education they receive at St. Labre. Their fundraising expense may appear high, but that is because they also provide good jobs for the people of the Northern Cheyenne and Crow Indian tribes -- something that is seldom fully explained by those groups who "rate" charities for their effectiveness. If you question their financial statement, I suggest you dig a little deeper. Go see them. Visit the schools. Talk to the kids. You'll discover St. Labre Indian School is an organization that squeezes every dollar and is fully appreciated by the Native American people it serves.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
how it serves the children in its care. I've been there and visited all of its schools. I've visited with the students and teachers. I've sat and cried listening to their stories and how St. Labre has made a very real different.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Expand the vocational and technical education opportunities as this is a place where jobs are few and far between.
