My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for CAMBODIAN ARTS AND SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION, Portland, ME, USA
After visiting Cambodia in 2004, I become intensely interested in helping the people recover from the genocide of Pol Pot. I was looking for a charitable organization that had low overhead, spent its money on useful projects and not administration and advertising. Although there are many charities and projects I could have participated in, I chose this one because of the focus on helping young girls. Young girls are often sold into sexual slavery because the families can't afford to feed them and boys have more opportunity for work, and therefore are of more financial use to the family.
I held a fundraiser for the Cambodian Arts and Scholarship Foundation and also sent my own money to provide food, bicycles, uniforms, and education so that girls could go to school. I got handwritten updates thanking me and updating me on the progress.
Review for SUSTAINABLE CAMBODIA INC, Gainesville, FL, USA
I have been a donor with Sustainable Cambodia since 2004. I was inspired to help young girls obtain education after visiting and seeing the many amputees, overwhelming poverty, and young female prostitutes who have no other way to survive.
I am really pleased with the way the program has grown to create more education, food, health, and business opportunities for the poor people of Pursat. I am kept informed of progress, have personal contact with my sponsored child, and feel confident that my money is going to the programs that they are designed to help.
