CSI continues to prove that a nonprofit doesn't have to be so big to make a difference, just good enough! CSI so far has made a huge difference in the lives of so many mothers and children. I know they have a long way to go, however by the fact that they are improving one life at a time, mission and goal accomplished. All this with minimal donations, next time I hear of someone or organization looking to make a donation, CSI is you are going to be highly recommended..... Great job and keep up the good work, many lives depend on it!!!!
Thank you

Volunteering with CSI has been a wonderful experience. I feel good when I see the girls light up with excitement when we distribute sanitary pads for free at the end of the Girl Talk, Girl Power session. I definitely feel good knowing I have touched their lives.

CSI have done a tremendous job helping the disadvantaged expectant mothers get the care the need. With little donations CSI is getting, they have gone over and beyond in providing the health services and save lives of mothers and babies.

It is a worthy organization.

My financial contributions to support CSI's initiatives have been small, and no matter the contribution, it is always appreciated and I receive updates to show me the impact of my contribution. As a donor, it's reassuring.
