Review for Drop in The Bucket, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Drop in the Bucket is one of the most legitimate charities helping to bring clean water and sanitation to Africa. They spend the majority of their donations on the actual cause, versus promotions and branding. The work they are doing is focused, effective, and serves as a guide for other NGOs. I applaud their dedication, including spending a majority of the year in Africa doing the work alongside their local employees, and continuing to evolve as a charity when they see new needs.

Review for Drop in The Bucket, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Drop in the Bucket is the kind of charity you can feel good about funding. I have witnessed firsthand how their donated money is spent, and it's done so brilliantly. They are on the ground in sub-Saharan Africa getting their hands dirty. Not only do they partner with the best and brightest innovators to make sure the wells and sanitation systems they are installing will be effective and long lasting, but they see beyond the immediate. They are now focusing on the need to keep women in schools and how having water and basic sanitary needs being met can accomplish that goal. They aren't just putting a band aid on the situation, they are working tirelessly to change the roots of it. I am proud to say I support DITB's commitment, and have even traveled to Uganda, Kenya and Souh Sudan with them to see how well they work in the field (including the native people they employ!). Donating to this organization is money well spent.

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

I would spend a bit more money on advertising and promoting Drop in the Bucket, though I see why they don't. They want to spend the money they are given on the ground in Africa, not in marketing.
