My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Heroes of the Nation, Redding, CA, USA
I first visited the foundation's Heroes of the Nation children's home and school in Nyahururu, Kenya in 2005, and have been back twice more (most recently in October of 2012). The 500+ children are well-cared-for, and very happy and hopeful. Violet Gitonga (Mum) is an extremely competent leader, ensuring that the children receive a superior education and live in a caring, supportive atmosphere. The Home is working on several self-sufficiency programs, which I feel is crucial to their long-term sustainability, and provides me as a donor with confidence that they recognize the importance of ensuring their own future rather than trusting wholly in Western donors. I am so happy to know my donation dollars are contributing to the formation of future leaders in Kenya, and working to develop a children's home model that can be emulated throughout Africa.
