Review for Make A Difference Now, Boise, ID, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Barbara Wilkinson. I have been a donor for MAD for two years as well as a volunteer. I volunteered in Tanzania in 2011 and 2012. My experience has been incredible with this organization, the wonderful children, the culture of the country, the warm welcome of Theresa and Emanuel (Theresa's assistant) upon arrival and through-out my stay. With each visit I have stayed just a little over 2 weeks. Getting to know these children has been the most rewarding experience of my life. The children are grateful and appreciative for everthing the organization/Theresa has given them...the opportunity to learn, to grow, to plan and look forward to a successful life. They each have a drive to give back to their community once they have finished school. Theresa, her team, donors, interns and volunteers have truly made a difference for so very many in Tanzania and India. I know that the money is funneled directly for education, clothing, food, medical and dental expenses. There is so much I could write about Theresa and the children of the orphanage in Tanzania. I encourage all to look at the MAD website, plan a trip to meet this fanastic group. I will never forget my experience there. I will continue to support this great organization and plan to make my 3rd trip in Sept. 2013. Theresa truly is a dedicated, loving, motivated and brave young lady. I admire her strength and ability to give so much of her life in helping others.
