Although I haven't had the opportunity to work with this organization, I'm proud of their services for those in need. It brings me immense joy to know that the founder and CEO of Brighter Dawns is a very close friend of mine. I'm glad that she has successfully lead this organization for all these years and accomplished what few her age have so far.

Of the many great nonprofits that I have volunteered for, I have to say Brighter Dawns is right at, if not at the top, of the list! It was great working with fellow volunteers in raising money and spreading the word about the organization. I am fortunate to be a part of the team that is working for a great cause! It is an organization to always remember and continue to volunteer for.

Brighter Dawns is an amazing nonprofit! I originally volunteered with the organization to help over the summer, but after such a great experience, I knew I didn't want to stop. The Brighter Dawns team is very supportive of its volunteers. And at the end of the day, I feel great knowing my handwork is going towards a great cause!

I'm very impressed with the model and leadership of Brighter Dawns, and I am amazed by the incredible impact it has made in the communities it serves. It's also run by people who are so young, and they're always trying to find new ways to increase their impact. I've known Tasmiah for almost 17 years and she's always dedicating 110% to her special projects, and they've always gone far, so I love that BD is in good hands.

The passion shown by these youngsters and the time dedicated by them (despite having their own personal and professional challenges) in helping people thousands of miles away is most inspiring and will bring great success to their endeavours. I wish them my best as they touch lives in their own special way by improving the living conditions of these under priviledged people. Proud of you.
