Review for Flying Kites, Dedham, MA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Flying Kites is an innovative, passionate organization with an excellent organizational structure and a lot of promise. The goals and ideals of FK really resonate with me in that the intention is to give their children the kind of care and education you would hope to give your own children. Very few children's homes in the world really try to give their children the kind of community and support that kids really need to grow and develop. The issues with this organization are just that it's difficult for a start-up organization to develop a donor base and a reliable board of directors, so the early years are shaky in terms of sustainable professional support. However, this is only the beginning, and I believe that Flying Kites Global has the capacity and intellect to succeed without a doubt.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

. . .that the founders are completely involved, 100%, and unbelievably approachable, and that I could see the impact on each individual child.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

. . .amazing, brilliant, innovative & compassionate.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

. . .change the lives and the futures of hundreds and hundreds of children. It could build a better, larger school, extend the community programs, and support many children and families in Kenya.

Ways to make it better...

. . .the board members and professionals who support FK were more often available for questions and were more involved.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

. . .the economic recession and the board.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
