Review for Kenya Self-Help Project, Burlington, VT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the pleasure of knowing the Kenya Self Help Project(KSHP) for almost five years. KSHP truly stands out for its excellence above other Non-Profits. In my professional experiences, I have consulted with large US based Non-profits, raised funds for several organizations, managed the distribution of funds to approved non-profits, served on non-profit boards, volunteered for non-profits and donated to several causes.

In all of my experiences over 30 years, KSHP stands above the rest of the organizations in the following ways:
1. Direct accountability of funds received and expended.
2. Ongoing communication of projects, people and programs in Kenya.
3. Fostering an ongoing communication between sponsors/donors and the children they sponsor.
4. Detailed quarterly information by individual program and child regarding the progress of sponsored children including grade transcripts, awards and letters.
5. An approach of partnership with locals in Kenya to achieve results and implement programs as opposed to a capitalist based US model of investment from afar.
6. An active and accountable Board of Directors who are involved in day to day issues and have a true passion and love for the programs, the sponsored kids and families, the village of Kendu Bay and the donors.

Through KSHP I know the lives that are being touched in Kenya and my life if being changed in the US through the great work of this non-profit. I continue to be amazed at the level of professionalism, respect, detail and love that the board and the entire organization operates with. This organization deserves to be recognized for the lives it is touching and it should be bench marked against for how to manage, report and communicate between donors and sponsored children. KSHP is truly a leading Non-Profit in all aspects!
