Review for Freedom Alliance, Dulles, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Freedom Alliance has been a tremendous blessing to my life. They have helped make it possible for me to be able to go to college and be able to focus on my goals without having this incredible financial burden. Over winter break I was privileged to be able to study abroad in Vietnam, exploring the different perspectives of the Vietnam War.  It truly was an incredible experience, that I will always remember. Driving through the country, talking to the Vietnamese citizens who lived through the war there, and seeing where the soldier actually fought brought the war to life for me and made me appreciate what I was learning about more than I could ever put into words.  Connecting with the college students there, also made me realize that even though this country has gone through an incredibly gruesome war and they are still recovering from it, their citizens still have hopes and reams of a better life too.  Without the scholarship that I received from the Freedom Alliance, there is no way that I would have been able to study abroad and have this once in a lifetime experience.   Thank you so much for all you have done for me!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
