Review for Arlington Academy of Hope Inc, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We have been child-sponsors for 2 students for many years. We have met the Wandas (real people making a difference, who started the school) and we feel like we know our students who write us several times a year. We see their growth through these letters, and it is simply amazing. They know us through our letters to them. Tracking volunteer efforts in Uganda is easy; the newsletter informs us about education and community events as well as tragedies (such as flooding, mudslides, etc). AAH is a model for low-overheard (no overhead?) non-profit NGOs. I hope to someday spend some summer weeks volunteering at AAH in Uganda.

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

Give them a paid finance person to handle the monthly child-sponsor donations.
