Review for Make A Difference, Boise, ID, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Every interaction I have had with Theresa Grant and Make a Difference has been very positive. We met several of the older children in March and we are so impressed with the quality of their education and their many attributes. They are ambitious, loving, polite, conscientious and personable. I believe Theresa is caring for and educating some of tomorrows leaders in Tanzania.

Review for Thriive, Ketchum, ID, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We have recently returned from visiting several businesses which THRIIVE supports in the Palestinian territories. THRIIVE works with the Small Enterprise Center in Ramallah to identify viable businesses and then to offer consulting services as well as funds. Emphasis is on promoting entrepreneurship among women and providing training, internships and job growth. The money is not repaid to THRIIVE, but goods and services are "paid forward" to needy nonprofits. We witnessed the smiles on the faces of orphans as they received delicious yogurt and baked goods from two THRIIVE supported businesses. The most promising part of the program is that this philanthropy continues after the loan is repaid. THRIIVE is building a culture of philanthropy where little existed before. We visited a greenhouse where organic produce is grown, a sewing business producing piecework and an olive oil soap business producing impressive herbal varieties of soap. All had created jobs and were owned by women.
