My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Childvoice International, Durham, NH, USA
I have just returned from a mission trip to ChildVoice's Lukome Center in Northern Uganda. I have been interested in the plight of East Africa and studied about what has happened and what is being done to help these countries. ChildVoice is the only remaining NGO that is specifically there to help women and children who come back from life in the bush. While the war has moved out of N. Uganda, people are still escaping and returning home. The things they have been witness and participate in are beyond words. Without ChildVoice and the program, these kids and their kids would be lost in a country that couldn't take care of them and that wasn't sure they could be trusted. I have witnessed, first hand, the progress these girls make and the joy and excitement they have for life and the forgiveness they experience. All are overwhelming and moving. I have never witnessed such indomitable spirits and feel priviledged to have gotten to spend two weeks helping ChildVoice!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I volunteer with the bead project that helps support this organization and have been able to actually see the beads being made in person. I also saw, first hand, the girls who live at the Center and the joy and love they can no feel, after having ChildVoice care for them in both their emotional and social, and educational development.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
The profound sense of forgiveness and love, despite all the uniaginable things they have been forced to do and witness will have a lasting effect on me.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
wondeful! I will absolutely go back.....I definitely saw how life changing this program was!!
