Review for People For Care & Learning, Cleveland, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Returned to the U.S. from Cambodia last week more convinced than ever of the worth of this great organization. While we were there, the Cambodian government presented Distinguished Humanitarian Service medals to key players involved with the poverty-reduction program underway near Phomn Penh. The poverty cycle can be interrupted at several critical junctures---housing, health, water, jobs, education, food---and I was impressed to see that PCL is attacking on all these fronts. The newest development is an arrangement for a U.S. manufacturer to locate a plant near the village where PCL is building 1,500 homes, a school, market, clinic, community center, and park. Now that I'm back in town, I've learned that a group of students at the local university are engaged in a 50-hour effort they hope will raise a significant amount of money for People for Care and Learning. People know it's worth the investment ... me included!

Review for People For Care & Learning, Cleveland, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

People for Care and Learning is the real deal. This organization does more with a dollar than any group I know. From their audacious project in Cambodia of building a whole town for several thousand residents, including its total basic infrastructure, to the down-in-the-dirt task of developing a model gardening-farming operation to move people toward self-sustainability, they do it all … and with transparency and accountability.
