Angel Covers put on an amazing fundraiser at a local brewery last week and it was great to hear about the programs mission statement and main goal of ending the poverty cycle across the world.
This organization has been helping kids worldwide for more than ten years and I'm especially impressed with their holistic approach, making sure that each child has adequate shelter, nutrition, and healthcare so that he/she can fully benefit from the education that Angel Covers makes sure they get. And, the new GATE program in Thailand is especially exciting, keeping young girls in school so they aren't trafficked.
Angel Covers is my all time favorite charity. They have good work going on in both Africa and Asia and is an all volunteer organization. This non-profit is all heart.
My wife and I have supported Angel Covers for several years - and are truly proud of the work they do. Knowing the Executive Director personally was a big factor in our original donations, but following the growth and development of the program(s) and the sincere efforts to put 100% of all donation into their work has been the basis for our continuing support. We are proud of being members of the Angel Covers' group! David & Laureen Moody
Hello, I have volunteered for Angel Covers and seen first hand in Nairobi how kids lives are transformed, especially deaf children who because of Angel Covers’ support receive an education—in Kenyan Sign Language—they would likely never get otherwise. Humble Hearts has gone from a small school cobbled together to a true campus with strong buildings where kids can live, play, and learn in safety and security. Angel Covers brings them fruit, which to poor communities is not always available or affordable, they provide nutrition programs, vitamins, supplies of all kinds for school and life. Angel Covers does wonders for real people around the world!
I've seen the Humble Hearts School for the Deaf in Nairobi first hand- it's an amazing testament to how Angel Covers converts donations into action. It's a phenomenal school in one of the most challenging places you can imagine (the combination of low income and the social stigma of deafness in Kenya), and Angel Covers does an amazing job of making their growth possible. I'm particularly impressed by how they have this kind of professional impact while keeping administrative overhead to practically zero. Show me another organization that does more with each dollar of a donation and I'll.....well, it doesn't matter what I'd offer to do b/c you can't find an example!
This is an amazing non profit with a far-reaching positive influence on children throughout the world. It has been my perviledge to be a financial supporter as well as a volunteer for over 10 years. I have traveled and witnessed first hand the work Angel Covers accomplishes with the totally unselfish non paid staff. The values and mission of this foundation have never wavered since it’s inception.
I have been working with Angel Covers for one year now in the role of Nutrition Director, and I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I chose to work with Angel Covers because of its 100% nonprofit practice, allowing for all donations to go solely to the children being served. This role has allowed me to not only use my skills and expertise in nutrition, but to develop upon these skills further. I have many ambitious ideas for the coming years as we work to improve the nourishment and quality of living for children around the world.
Angel Covers dedication to helping children break the cycle of poverty continues to go strong. This growing, volunteer run, non-profit focuses on programs aimed at meeting the basic needs of shelter, education, nutrition and medical for children (and their families). Alleviating these burdens gives them the opportunity to make strides toward a better life and being a volunteer run organization allows for many more dollars to go into the programs apposed to overhead. Being a part of this remarkable organization that is making such an impact and supporting its mission is a privilege.
As my family and I continue to be involved with Angel Covers we are inspired by the volunteers and especially the kids. The volunteers and donors, many of whom have been a volunteer or donor for years, give tirelessly of their time, spirit and resources to help children see their potential, strive for their dreams and make great strides in building great lives as they grow. The kids bring their incredible spirit, hunger for knowledge and desire to expand their skills. The children the Angel Covers assists are not just looking for a handout or hoping for the best, they are dedicated to shape their futures with the help of all involved. Without the great volunteers and our very generous donors we wouldn't have the opportunity to help so many deserving children to develop into wonderful and productive adults.
Angel Covers is run by a dedicated group of volunteers. This has allowed Angel Covers to spend the majority of donations on programs as opposed to administrative costs. The organization has kept focus on doing a set number of programs well and not spreading their resources to thin. This organization has continued to stay true to its mission of providing food, shelter, education and medical support to impoverished children.
Angel Covers is a non-profit that over the years has continued to keep administration costs at an extremely low level while maintaining focussed programs. Their mission is to address all aspects that children need - education, nutrition, housing and healthcare. The organization is very transparent and requires proof of performance from participating partners.
My wife and I have been supporters of Angel Covers for some time now.
We sponsor a child in Humble Hearts, and are always amazed by the work Angel Covers does at the school, as well as their other programs around the world.
It’s such an incredible thing to receive the updates regarding the students, and we always get a hand written letter from the children we sponsor, which is just lovely.
Angel Covers are a truly exceptional Nonprofit, one that we shall continue support in the future.
Angel Covers is close to my heart. We have tied blankets for these orphans since it's inception. We are honored to help anyway we can. We see all the good Angel Covers provides worldwide. The organization is selfless & goes beyond it's budget to help those children in need.
Angel Covers does wonderful work for kids in orphanages, especially in China and Africa. They do amazing work to provide educational and nutritional support to the many kids who have been orphaned in those countries. And they do this with an all volunteer staff, which is rare these days. Their work is without a doubt one of the most worthwhile charitable organizations!!
I have known of this charity and its great work since its inception. I can't think of another charity that does such great work and uses nearly 100% of the donations received to serve its clients. Thank you Angel Covers for all the work that you do.
I first became aware of Angel Covers (AC) when I met Beatrice Anunda, founder of Humble Hearts School for the Deaf in Nairobi, on her visit to the US in 2008. We went on to sponsor two children at Humble Hearts, and gradually learned about other important work that AC was doing in Asia on behalf of children. My wife and I really like their emphasis on education for less-privileged kids such as deaf children, orphans, and girls in societies where they have less opportunities than boys. When asked to become a board member a year ago, I gladly accepted.
Angel Covers is a small, highly effective NGO that supports a school for the deaf in Nairobi and an orphanage in China. Director Kari Fillmore is highly dedicated and works for no salary, indeed, paying many Angel Covers-related expenses from her own pocket; hence, administrative overhead is negligible (stamps, etc. are about all). Several other administrative volunteers also work for no salary. Funds are raised through individual contributions, an annual fund raiser dinner, contributions through the AmazonSmile program, and other sources.
Angel Covers does amazing work all around the world, and particularly in China and Africa. And, they do it with an all-volunteer staff, which is rare to find these days. The volunteers work hard to implement programs, and keep donors in the loop. When a need is identified, money is quickly raised to fund it.
We've been involved with Angel Covers since it started, and honestly feel this nonprofit is worthy of the title Great Nonprofits!
My wife and I are long term supporters of Angel Covers. For many years, we have sponsored a child at Humble Hearts school in Kenya. Every year we receive updates regarding their progress, and also a letter from the child themselves. It really is remarkable that our small donation is capable of making so many changes in these kids lives, but this is entirely possible through the hard work of Angel Covers. The effort and care of everyone involved is continuous. Everyone involved in Humble Hearts school, are absolutely committed to the education, care and general wellbeing of all the children in their care. The work that they do is undoubtedly providing these kids with the best possible chances for the future. We are, and will continue to be proud to support this wonderful charity.
This will be my 11th year to somehow be involved with Angel Covers as a sponsor or as a volunteer. Great organization. True hearts. Efficient financial stewards. Dedicated sponsors and purposeful projects. So much more can be done through this small but mighty organization!
Angel Covers hosted a great event of wine tasting, food, and a silent auction. They shared their history and a personal story of a few of the children. It was very inspiring to see all of these people coming together in support of this wonderful nonprofit. They definitely do great work and touch many lives to make them better!
n 2002 a spark ignited between two women wanting to make a positive difference in lives of Chinese orphans. Fifteen years later, Angel Covers has grown and expanded into many countries and has changed the lives of children throughout the world. This foundation is remarkable in many ways not the least of which is that all the worldwide work is carried out by volunteers, none of which has ever received any compensation for their time and expenses. I have volunteered with this foundation since 2006 and my husband and I have been monthly/annual donors since it's inception. The driving force of each volunteer is to do all we can to help all children become independent, empowered adults breaking the cycle of poverty by providing education, nutrition, shelter, and medical care. By visiting www.angelcovers.org, you too will become inspired by the accomplishments of the Angel Covers organization. Please consider being part of this remarkable foundation when making your monetary donation decisions and further, consider any volunteer hours you may have.
I first learned of Angel Covers in 2008 after hearing a talk by Beatrice Anunda, founder of Humble Hearts School for the Deaf in Nairobi, Kenya. Angel Covers is a very important partner in furthering the work of HH. My wife and I traveled to Nairobi with the Executive Director in 2009 and were utterly amazed at the amount of positive impact the school was having on its 300 students, all being educated in a makeshift school building made from corrugated iron and saplings. Fortunately, with major help from Angel Covers, Humble Hearts was able to build a permanent structure housing both the school and dormitories for students that needed to stay at the school, and Humble Hearts moved in during the following year.
My wife and I have continued to support Angel Covers and Humble Hearts through the years, and this year I was invited to join the Board of Angel Covers. Over the last several years Angel Covers has assisted the school in expanding its nutrition, healthcare, and shelter programs and has helped launch a program by which older students are now equipped with Kindle readers so they can access a far broader selection of textbooks and other reading material. AC is an NGO that has truly made a huge difference in the lives of many, many children, all with minimal or no overhead.
We've been supporting Angel Covers since 2008 and it is truly a worthy, grass roots organization. My wife and I visited one of their supported institutions, Humble Hearts School for the Deaf in Nairobi in 2009, and did volunteer work for a week. The staff works for small salaries and are very dedicated to giving a quality education. In addition, communication to those of us who continue to sponsor a child is regular and substantive, reinforcing our satisfaction in continuing our support. And, best of all, all Angel Covers personnel are volunteers and the minimal necessary overhead is covered by contributions specifically for that purpose, so 100% of sponsorship contributions and other donations go directly to the benefit of the people beng helped.
