Review for Empower Playgrounds Inc, Provo, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've worked with Empower Playgrounds both as a volunteer and as a donor and have had such an excellent experience. I got the chance to visit playground installations on the Volta River islands while I was in Ghana, help repaint one of their swingsets, and meet some of the recipients of this wonderful nonprofit's work. I have also donated towards a new merry-go-round installation and art supplies for the students. I have seen the actual numbers of the increasing test scores of children who benefit from both play and learning through EPI, which far outstrip performance of other schools and regions in the country. I've also been able to meet the founder and learn about the technology first-hand, as well as learn more about the programs and their results through the Executive Director. EPI is committed to helping Ghanaian children learn and play, and they consistently seek out new technologies that will support this mission. I have been very impressed with their work, responsiveness, commitment, and innovation.

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

Decrease the cost of installations, highlight more student success stories of graduating and going on to further school/career/etc.
