Review for A Spring of Hope, Inc., Coconut Creek, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was looking for a non-profit to help out and Catchafire matched up my favorite causes of educating girls in developing countries and water with a wonderful little non-profit. It was love at first "site". They drill wells, at schools, that bring water, which helps girls/children and the community be healthy with clean water and growing healthy food and also their economy and, and, and! The good just keeps growing like the food the school grows for the kids. They are different in their organization in that they have not only donated the well, they "co-own" it and have a real relationship with the school and the community. They make sure the well keeps going and the people learn how to take care of it. They use their funds and efforts very well. The executive director Joanne is very generous with her time and her kindness. It's a well run non-profit.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Maybe find new ways of promoting their efforts. They do as much for the people of south africa as some of the more well known water non-profits but those have a lot of social media exposure.
