Review for Nepal Youth Foundation, Sausalito, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Nepal Youth Foundation assists the most vulnerable children, especially girls from destitute rural communities, have a chance at a better life by getting proper nutrition and an education. Nepal is a very poor country with a patriarchal society that tends to discourage schooling for girls- therefore, girls may be "sold" into indentured servitude to provide money for their families. The Nepal Youth Foundation has rescued thousands of girls by gifting their parents with a baby goat or pig, and helping with school fees. Malnourished children are saved by teaching proper nutrition techniques to their mothers. All this is done in a culturally sensitive manner for a more lasting success.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The Nepal Youth Foundation has an informative website as well as regular mailings so I can rejoice in their successes, with stories of children whose lives have been improved with proper nourishment and schooling.

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

There are so many more children who could be helped if there was more funding for the Nepal Youth Foundation- and they make sure every penny is put to good use!

Role:  Donor & I donate to NYF because I have been so moved by their efforts to protect children from abuse and hunger, and to provide a good education.
 

Review for Pathfinder International, Watertown, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Pathfinder International helps empower the world's poorest women to have healthier families by spacing their pregnancies, through education and contraceptives. Maternal death rates are greatly reduced with training for mid-wives, devices to control excessive bleeding after delivery, and tetanus vaccines. All of their work is done in a culturally sensitive manner, so Pathfinder's work is welcomed, not seen as intrusive or insulting.

So many more people could be helped by Pathfinder if only there was more funding- the work they do is so important and saves so many lives.

Role:  Donor & I donate to Pathfinder because I have been so moved by their efforts to protect women's and babies' health, in the poorest parts of the world.
