Review for The Magic Penny, Inc., East Northport, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Magic Penny has been doing amazing work in Sierra Leone for a long time. Building a very beautiful school, putting in water, training teachers and so much more. One thing I am so impressed by. When Ebola hit Sierra Leone, they didn't walk away. They have been raising funds to send prevention materials to the area to prevent the spread of the disease in that corner of Sierra Leone. That is a great idea and I hope they can get many supporters to hep them in the great work. The Magic Penny should be congratulated on their insights, commitment and dedication to the children and families they work with.

Review for The Magic Penny, Inc., East Northport, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Magic Penny has accomplished a great deal for the children of this rural village. Imagine going to a beautiful school with clean bright rooms, lots of light, glass windows that shine for these young people to learn. There efforts to improve the lives of the people include providing water, food for the children, gardening for sustainability, sewing machines for villagers to make the children's uniforms and so much more. The Magic Penny is working to improve the lives of everyone there. They are to be commended for such important and caring and professional work.

Review for Bad Dog Rediscovers America, Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Some say H2 Empower is my baby because I am the founder. True. But after working in Ethiopia for over 10 years I am still driven to help us grow because I have seen the children working in classrooms with no furniture or literally under a tree, classrooms that are so dark I couldn't read the blackboard, classrooms where there are over 90 children. H2 Empower is working to improve these conditions by training teachers, providing books to increase access to knowledge, putting water and toilets in the schools where children had no access to water without walking to a distance creek. These small interventions impact thousands of children in a rural area so populated that a primary school has over 2,500 children. h2 Empower consistently works with the local community to address concerns, to enhance learning, to serve the whole family. I hope anyone who reads this review can support this work. Then you too can make a difference in the lives of these families.

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

help it build staff in Ethiopia to further serve the communtiy.
