My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Centre for Development and Population Activities, Washington, DC, USA
There are now more than 5400 alumni of CEDPA's training and other programs in more than 100 countries (including the US). These alumni are now working at the community and national level to make a profound difference for women and children in their country, and to a person they tell us that they wouldn't be where they are without the leadership training CEDPA provided them. There are, in addition, tens of thousands of adolescent girls and boys who are leading safer and healthier lives as a result of CEDPA's unique BETTER LIFE OPTIONS programs, which have been implemented in Africa and South Asia. In terms of value for money, CEDPA is in a class by itself.

Review for Washington Area Women's Foundation, Inc., Washington, DC, USA
WAWF is a wonderful organization! I have served in a variety of volunteer capacities for the past 6 years, and have become increasingly impressed with the organization's vision, reach and impact. As a volunteer, I have been invited to participate in program assessments, site visits, and proposal reviews. This is an organization that knows how to use its volunteers, and an organization that realizes that it will take all of us to make a lasting impact on the lives and life chances of women in the Washington area. Bravo!
