Review for Pagus:Africa, Norristown, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a student just waking up to some of the world's most devastating problems, I always wished there was some way I could help--more than words or fundraisers. I wanted to DO something to make the world a better place. With Pagus, I had that opportunity. I raised funds by holding events and writing letters and was able to travel to Ghana twice and truly "get my hands dirty." It was such a formative experience for me to be able to identify a problem, figure out a solution, and work towards fixing it. Pagus is an organization that will make you feel like YOU count, you matter, and your donations and actions will improve others' lives.

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

travels to Ghana and regular updates on new work there.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Reach farther, generate interest outside of the Philadelphia area.

Role:  Volunteer & Assisted teaching at Bishop Forson School .
