Review for Hands To Hearts International, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Sasha Rabsey
As a donor to Hands to Hearts International I want to inspire other people to donate. I was able to see HHI’s work in action when I was invited by founder/director Laura Peterson to participate in the pilot program in Kampala, Uganda. Many of the women said their lives were forever changed by what they learned and they were eager to share it with other women in their villages. In this way, the whole community is enriched through just one HHI training. Laura has created a lean organization that has an amazing reach. She’s truly changing the world, one child at a time.

Review for G.R.A.C.E. USA, Half Moon Bay, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with GRACE USA for three years. I am an international funder of grassroots organizations and I can say that GRACE is by far and away one of the most effective non profits I have ever seen. I visited their demonstration farm in Nanyuki, Kenya and was highly impressed by the deep knowledge and skills they were passing on to other farmers in the area such as bee farming, construction of ponds for fish as a food source, alternative crops, and goat farming. I visited with a self formed group of HIV patients that had been given a goat by GRACE. Following the instruction given to them by GRACE, this group turned one goat into 6 goats and were generating enough income for everyone to maintain or improve their health. What I found to be fascinating was that the people in the community that had once ostracized this group, due to their HIV status, were now seeking advice on how to acquire and manage their own goats. I have also visited one of the Early Childhood Development Centers supported by GRACE and not only saw orphaned and vulnerable children being cared for both physically and psychologically but their caretakers also being cared for and taught income generating skills. I can't speak highly enough of the dedication, commitment and compassion that GRACE has for grassroots development.
