I am very proud of the Lan Vwa organization. In a short time they have helped a community, not by giving them a lot of money, but by teaching them to help themselves. Lan Vwa proving that education makes a difference.

I am currently a volunteer with LanVwa, and I couldn't be more proud. Such a small organization who puts their full heart and soul into education and their students. I know every effort made and every dollar donated is going to a phenomenal team of people serving a very hard working group of students.

I have worked on a few fundraisers with this group. Through the interaction with LanVwa's leadership team it can be clearly seen that they have a heart for children that desperately need an opportunity to pursue education. I have also met some of the students that have benefited from LanVwa's cyber schools and their testimonies prove that my desire to support this nonprofit is well founded.

I have gone on a few visits to the Joconal, Guatemala cyber school created by LanVwa as a volunteer. This group of individuals is serious about their mission for furthering education. The students have developed dreams for their future where previously they had none. Children who had never seen a computer are now sending emails (sometimes even in English!) to each other and to remote instructors. Adults who never had the opportunity to further their elementary education are taking time to learn after work. The evidence of progress can be clearly observed and motivates me that anyone can make a difference in this world.

LanVwa is an organization that empowers children with the opportunity to learn. The board, volunteers and partners are generous and solve big problems with what they have. They have never been afraid to think outside of the box and to do things that haven't been done before. The heart and the passion of this organization is for the people they help and the evidence of it's impact is in the dreams of it's students being nurtured and realized.
