As a teacher I get to see, first-hand, the impact A.H.A.V.A has on its students. Getting children excited about learning is rare now-a-days. Getting them excited about learning a language is nearly impossible and yet, A.H.A.V.A manages to do so in a fun-filled way. Children who can barely sing the ABC song are actually reading within a month. How amazing is that? From reading for charity with the annual Readathon to amazingly themed writing contests, these kids are learning skills in a language which is fundamental for succeeding in life. Remarkable!
I helped set up the AHAVA website and attended to other computer needs of the organization. I found that the non-profit is run with very little waste. The CEO is extremely careful with the organization's funds, so that they will be used as much as possible to attain the non-profit's goals - increasing English literacy in school-age children - and not spent on overhead costs. I highly recommend this non-profit for its efficient use of resources.
I have been extremely impressed over the years at the amazing impact A.H.A.V.A. has had on the lives of its participants. It's is simply inspiring to see how children who are afraid to say "hello" in English at the beginning of the year are transformed into children who write and perform in a play in English at the end of the year! Thank you for your amazing work!
