My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Hope Restored, Franklin, TN, USA
I've just returned from my third trip to Haiti .As with my other trips,I was deeply honored once again to be a part of this amazing organization and to be so warmly welcomed by the people.We alwaus accomplish so much and there is a job for everyone,regardless of your age or physical ability.And unlike some organizations,every dollar donated to Restore Haiti goes straight to helping the people in the area,whether to feed and educate the children ,build a house or a number of other thongs done to help the community.The pastors there are amazingly loving and selfless ,as are their families and staff.And ,last,bit certainly not least,are the choldren.Ive never seen such loving ,happy kids anywhere else.Grateful for the smallest things in life they cant seem to get enough hugs from us.The whole experience is so immensely gratifying and I cant encourage you enough to try a trip for uouself and to take it wigh the wonderful people of Restore Haiti.Bon jour!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would stress to the volunteers the importance of not giving gifts to the kids such as ipods,phones,etc because of the effect it has on an old culture such as theirs.The pastors know what they are doing and id stress ghe importance to each group coming,how important it is to seek counsel with Pastor LeFleur before giving anything to a child.
