Global Orphan Prevention, rather than using funds for a bandaid approach, is able the think outside the square to reach the root of problems and develop innovative projects to help avoid children from having to live in orphanages. Funds are reaching directly to where it is needed - the people of Nepal. Earlier this year I had the opportunity to visit the Dairy Farm which was developed and built by GOP. I was most impressed by this project which provides income generation for a low caste primary school, incorporating involvement of local community members. With a hands on approach and low overheads I can see GOP giving ongoing service to the people of Nepal, especially to those of low caste.
Global Orphan Prevention provides sustainable methods to alleviate global poverty and gives communities the tools they need to grow. Knowing that 100% of the time and $ donated to the organization is going back into the communities within Nepal, truly shows what great work this grassroots organization is doing!
An unwavering commitment to helping the underprivileged and an ability to operate on a shoestring.
I am a full time social worker in Nepal. After the earth quake in April 2015 I teamed up with Global Orphan Prevention to provide aid to mothers and babies. Our work together was some of the most dangerous and rewarding work I have done. We traveled deep into the hills and jungles of Nepal while riding our many large aftershocks. The amount we accomplished was great compared to the limited budget we were working with. Global Orphan Prevention is a solid organization working hard for the mothers and babies of Nepal.
When I started following the progress of Global Orphan Prevention, I knew immediately that this was an organization worth helping. The foresight that Ms. Hilborn has shown in producing long term solutions has been remarkable. One of the aspects of this organization that I most respect is the consistent communication from Ms. Hilborn via email and social media. Everyone involved knows exactly where our efforts and donations are going, how the children of Nepal are being helped, and what future plans are in store.
From one persons compassion and drive to help others. To the network of people who have brought light to a part of the world and its horrible lack of education and social resources. Global orphan prevention has made great strides from humble beginings.
Dedicated, devoted and selfless leadership. Clear vision and tangible progress. What more do you want from an NGO?
As Executive Director for Helping Assist Nepal's Disabled, we partnered with GOP right after the April 25th 2015 7.8 earthquake in Nepal. The first thing that I noticed was the high quality of Katie's volunteers. Eric and Shelby were both top-notch. They both had a sincere interest in helping the earthquake victims of Nepal; specifically building birthing centers where the remote village health posts had been destroyed. This effort saved the lives of both babies and mothers. Eric regularly reported back to Katie and her board as to our progress in the field.
Because of GOP's efforts in Nepal soon after the earthquake, there will be a noticeably positive impact in Nepal for the mothers and babies in these remote regions!
Katie Hilborn is an empathetic leader who cares about the people of Nepal.
