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.

GlobalOP is a nonprofit that believes in spending time working directly with the individuals it seeks to support, which is necessary for the children of Nepal to receive maximum benefits. Not focusing on merely donations, but sending volunteers into the field sets this organization apart from others.

Global Orphan Prevention is one of the most dedicated and tenacious non-profits I've worked with. The authentic and compassionate leadership of the founder and director translates through to all operations of Global OP. Not only that, but this organization is truly committed to fulfilling it's vision of keeping mothers and children together.

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!

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.

I personally haven't worked with this organisation but anyone can see the work that they do so selflessly is creating a better place. Bringing light to situations and places that need it and doing it all with such passion, this is what we need more of.

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.

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!

I must admit I have no experience working with this organization. However, I have spent a great deal of time under the tutelage of Ms. Katie Hilborn, one of the founder and my source of inspiration. Her works not only helped the world but also influenced my approach towasrd community service. I am glad that GOP is working hard to help the people of Nepal recover from the tragedy that has fallen upon them. I hope the best will come to one of the best person in the world.

I've done some consultation work with GOP and have always been impressed with the organization's ability to garner broad perspectives towards their aims, and thus put them together to achieve. This is truly a grass roots organization, working to create change through innovative means.

If you're looking for a worthwhile organization, you could not do better than Global Orphan Prevention. The work they do is beyond measurement! You can be sure that more than 90% of your money goes directly towards providing for the support of building schools and creating sustaining farms. There should be more non-profits like this. Help keep them going by donating.

I've been most impressed with the clarity of this GOP's sustainability plan. I feel confident when I make a donation that my funds are going exactly where they should be and will actually get a result long-term for orphanages & schools, not a temporary fix-up of something that will go by the wayside when money runs out. I've seen firsthand over the past 4 years how hard the founder of GOP has worked to make a dream become a reality. After a vacation/volunteering at an orphanage in Nepal, the founder saw a need for these children and families, came back to the US, raised money from friends to help. Went back, provided animals to help some families be sustainable and ending up building a school in Pokhara as well. Further educating herself, began this non-profit organization, went thru the government legalities to make it official, put together a website and again raised funds to return to Nepal to continue her goal of sustainability. She's made it her business to understand the people and respect their culture. This is an organization that will do great service.

I volunteered with Global Orphan Prevention last year as a management consultant. I advised them on research and fact-finding areas for project development. Since that time, Katie and her NGO, Global Orphan Prevention has taken my advice and have produced solid research to further her endeavors. I am happy I could have helped her in this precious stage in their development.
