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.

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.

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.
