PORTION FOR ORPHANS INC
March 14, 2011

I have seen the conditions of orphanages in the places PFO donates to, and if you donate to the state-run orphanages, the orphans are not impacted as the money never gets to them.
However, PFO donates to non-profit organizations that are NOT state-funded, and the children see every penny of that money.
The integrity of the leadership in PFO is second to none.
The impact of PFO is life to those on the verge of death; children who need simple surgeries are able to have those surgeries because of this organization.

The Great!

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

the life of Jade, a sweet 7 year old Chinese girl with a heart condition. PFO has changed the lives of many through its work.

Ways to make it better...

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

start funding other orphanages, but monetary donations would have to increase in order for that to happen.

Friends of Refugees Inc
March 14, 2011

Seyoum comes every day the Cafe is open, and we apply for jobs each time. He wants to be a security officer. He's a bit older, but I know that we will find the right job for him.
We were able to find a labor job for Misgana, even though his specialty is in IT. As we build his resume, I'm sure that he will be able to land an IT job.
Nestor says that even though there isn't a job for him yet, we encourage him by our helpfulness and persistence.
The leaders of the organization actively seek how they can help refugees, which leads to practical programs. The community garden is like a taste of home to refugees who farmed. The mommy and me literacy program partners with mothers, so that the first teacher the child has is their parent.
The organization truly helps create and train refugees how to be contributing members of society.

The Great!

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

Those who have found jobs and decide to come back and volunteer at the Cafe, to help others who need jobs.

Ways to make it better...

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

develop more programs because the ones in use are so useful to the refugees, but there is always more to be done.
