Review for The Project on Government Oversight, Inc., Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars

Review for Heifer Project International, Inc., Little Rock, AR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Heifer Foundation locates needy people in needy countries and teaches them how to raise animals AND share them with their neighbors, allowing them to earn enough to pay school fees for their kids and eat better and even, sometimes, afford medical attention. Did I forget something? And Betty's slide shows about the people who are involved in their homes makes the whole deal very real. Thank you Betty.

Years ago I created a slide show about human rights for Amnesty International using folk art examples mostly from this Institute. It was shown hundreds of times and we were told it was an enormous success.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

move it closer to my home.
