Review for World Vision International, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been giving to World Vision since 1989 and have nothing but praise for the organization. 87% of their donations go directly to the people in the countries that need it. They are in over 100 countries around the world providing humanitarian relief efforts 24/7. I would highly encourage anyone to join them in helping the people of Haiti. They have 370 staff members on the ground although most of them are shell shocked from this disaster and need relief themselves. So please donate now to help the people of Haiti. Thank you!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

It consistently gives to the poorest of the poor by teaching, training, providing basic services but also by helping people to help themselves. I know adults that were sponsored as children that are now leading productive lives.

Review for A Schmahl Science Workshop, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am second grade teacher that has benefitted from the expertise of A Schmahl Science Workshop in many ways. Mrs. Schmahl recently taught a fossils/dinosaur unit to my class which kept them actively engaged in the topic for over 90 minutes. She has also provided science kits to my class for several years which have made teaching science easier and more interesting for my students. I highly endorse A Schmahl Science Workshop to any parent, teacher or school district as a way to provide more consistent hands on learning for today's students.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand its influence to many more school districts. I know that A Schmahl Science Workshop would like to grow into the Sacramento area. This would give a huge advantage to teachers and students in other areas, especially with disadvantaged students.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
