Review for Nivasa Foundation, Merrimac, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Nivasa Foundation is a truly unique organization with a big heart and even bigger goals. Nivasa may be the only modern day anti-slavery organization founded and directed by a survivor of slavery, bringing a genuine empathy and a deeply personal touch to their work. I feel honored to be a part of this young organization which has already touched the lives of so many former slaves.

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

my contact with its caring and approachable volunteers and leadership.

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

provide them with more funding for their existing programs and to enable them expand their programming to support victims in Sri Lanka and other countries, including the United States.
